It was really a true Miracle that I survived, unscathed, a subarachnoid hemorrhage - bleeding in my brain (50% of people who have one die, 90% of those who survive have brain damage). I am so thankful that my husband, Ed, was there and he has provided a lot of the details of how things happened. He quickly made some calls to the people in our MonaVie business and thousands of people began praying for a Miracle!
The Miracle actually began when I didn’t have the pain while stuck in traffic and that there were several Doctors in the meeting who immediately diagnosed a problem, and called an ambulance. We were 5 minutes a way from one of the top trauma hospitals in the country, Christiana Care Hospital, Wilmington, DE with a specialist on staff (an Interventional NeuroRadiologist) - (sidebar - at that time there was not one within 100's of miles of Naples.)
The Doctors discovered my bleeding was not caused by an aneurysm ( a "bubble" in the vein that bursts) I had a vein that was bleeding out with no way to stop it. The NeuroSurgeon was ready to install a shunt in my head to relieve the pressure, when the NeuroRadiologist took one last look and then confirmed a Miracle because the bleeding had stopped! I do believe in the power of faith and prayer!
I am so thankful to Ed, the Doctors and hospital staff, my friends, family, and the many people who prayed for me. I spent a week in a drug-induced "coma" as the fluid drained from my brain. Then another week in the hospital recovering. MonaVie sent the corporate jet to fly me home safely to continue my recovery with my family… And now here I am today, alive and well with a desire to share a message of hope and encouragement with you in my book.
I hope you will order it and begin your journey...
