Trinity International University President David S. Dockery is recuperating from a cardiac procedure performed in Chicago Wednesday that followed what doctors call a mild heart attack.
Cardiac specialists at Northwestern Memorial Hospital placed four stents in coronary arteries after Dockery suffered chest pains and dizziness on Monday. Following the procedure, doctors reported excellent progress and told his family there were no complications.
Faculty and staff met Wednesday morning in the A.T. Olson Chapel on the Trinity campus to pray for Dockery, his family, and the caregivers.
“I am grateful for the outpouring of love and support during this time,” Dockery said. “We deeply appreciate our friends and colleagues who prayed fervently and thank God for his gracious provision.”
In the days ahead, doctors will help determine when he may resume a normal work schedule.
“The Trinity board, faculty, staff, and students are praying for President Dockery as he recuperates,” Board of Regents Chairman Neil Nyberg said. “We are profoundly thankful to God for such a positive outcome.”
