After pneumonia like symptoms Friday June 11 Bill Sproat went to Logan Regional Hospital where in the Emergency Room it was determined that he was in need of critical care for his heart. Life flight flew Bill to a Salt Lake City hospital where he is currently being cared for.
It has since been determined that bill has a diagnosis of idiopathic cardiomyopathy which essentially means that his heart is enlarged. The cause of his enlarged heart is unknown at this time and further testing will be performed. The current theory is that it was caused by a virus.
Currently Bill is in critically stable condition and will remain there for quite some time. His healing process is going to be a long one that will span over several months. Bill’s family wants all of Bills fans and friends to know they appreciate all of the love and support they have received thus far.
