On January 3, 2017, after returning home from a rescue call and a fire call, Dennis suffered a dissection/stroke in the cerebellum of is brain. He was taken by ambulance to Mayo Hospital and then transferred to Gundersen. On January 5th, he suffered a second stroke, but then began to improve. He suffered a third stroke on January 12th, one day before he was due to go home. This stroke involved a brain bleed and was immediately followed by brain surgery. During this time, he developed aspiration pneumonia and needed to be placed on a ventilator. He spent 13 days in Critical Care and then was moved to inpatient rehab for 3 weeks. After spending 44 days in the hospital, he was released on February 16th to go home and continues outpatient outpatient therapy. Because of the hospital move to an "out-of-network" facility, hospital bills have become an issue. His therapy process is slow as the part of his brain affected takes longer to heal. A timeline is unknown.
