We Thank Everyone for All Their Prayers
My husband sufferred a cardiac arrest and MI at home and was given CPR immediately and defibrillated by the AED brought by the firefighters. Paramedics stabilized him and brought him to the ER. He was immediately cared for by the ER staff and Dr. Sorentino. The cath lab and Dr. Behrens was called in and he received four stents. He was unconscious and then taken to ICU where the staff got him settled and came to talk with our family. We were very frightened and upset. His condition was explained by his nurse and we were given both good and bad news. Only time would tell his prognosis. He received excellent care in ICU. The staff were very informative and caring. He progressed and regained full alertness and cognition and is back to himself by the end of the week.
The staff was wonderful to us. So many people came to me and gave hugs and support. We thank everyone for all the prayers. God has a plan for him and St. Mary's was instrumental in giving him another chance at life.
