Personal Stories: Keith Hallbourg
Hello. I just happened upon your website via a
"Google" search. I too survived an acute dissection in 1994 when I was
25 years old.
Long story short, I am still here with a St. Jude valve
and a dacron ascending aorta. In addition to some physical limitations
and chronic concerns I am fairing well enough not to complain much.
All things considered I could be dead for 10 years plus at this
That said, I continue to suffer mentally from the psychological
trauma of the entire life changing event.
This mindset has been exacerbated greatly with my brother's recent
sudden death (April 16th, 2004) of an acute aortic dissection, at age
I would likely enjoy, or at least find cathartic, corresponding with
you regarding our similar experiences.
If this is of any interest to you please email me at your
convenience. Otherwise, best of luck to you.
Cordially, Keith W. Hallbourg
