Personal Stories: Dolores


On October 4th 2005, my wife Dolores was attending her mothers funeral. She developed intense pain and shortness of breath. Approximately 4 hours after getting to the E.R. they figured out what the problem was.

Immediately the transferred her to another hospital and right into surgery. After 21 days in CCU2 at Methodist Hospital in Indianapolis In. and another 7 days in rehab i brought her home Nov 2nd.The doctors all have told her how lucky she is to be alive.

She dissected both ascending and descending through the aortic arch all the way through her abdomen. She has a 5" graph and 9"scar. We have been so blessed with all the support from family and friends. We live neat Joplin Mo. so without all of the support from so many people I don't know where we would be now.

I have been off of work now over a month sitting and watching over her and somehow everything has been taken care of. A big thanks to everyone at home who have done fund raisers and that kind of thing to help out financially.

There is absolutely no way to ever express our thanks and love.

 

Sincerely

Scott and Dolores
