Personal Stories: Julie Atwell's Mother
It's good to hear that so many people that have good stories to tell
about aortic dissection, my story is horrible... My mom was diagnosed
with aortic dissection on June 25,2004 a day after her 70th birthday...
The hospital chose not to do her surgery until June 28, she died on the
It has been a horrible nightmare and I hope everyday that wake up the
nightmare will be over. She was misdiagnosed on June 4,2004, she lived
for 3 weeks not even knowing that she was so sick.
I wish I could understand more about the disease. The doctors
told us from the beginning that she had a 80% chance of living but I
have learned since through Brian that those chances were not right.
We are talking to the hospital management and hoping we can get our
story out, please keep our family in your prayers, the holidays were
very hard.. Our mother was all we had (our father died in 1976). I
wished my story could be a happy ending.
