Anthony Kivela contacted his wife Peggy and she told him that Jim had developed a rare blood disorder that was causing his blood to build up to many antibodies and this was causing his blood to become too thick.  A machine was used to draw his blood, warm it, and thin it out. Doctors are still trying to determine the best treatment and medication for him. He was released from the hospital and is now home and able to receive phone calls.
