Coming Through the System Full Circle
I was discovered one evening with my head in my dinner plate, completely unconscious and paralyzed. With in one hour at CHI Health Immanuel I was given the miracle drug that gave me new life. After three weeks of wonderful care in the rehab unit, I walked out of the hospital. After many weeks of out-patient therapy I reached a point where I could be discharged. A few weeks after that I was sent to another hospital for heart surgery. Having left there too soon, I was sent back to Immanuel hospital for further recovery. During my second hospitalization at Immanuel, I received the same fine care that I previously had, but in another department. Upon dismissal I was sent home with Home Health Care from Alegent. I could not have had any finer care than what I received from all of the staff at Immanuel, including every one from the valet service employee to the housekeepers and the nurses who came to my home and continued my therapy. At present I am in the cardiac rehab program and receiving the finest care there as well. I am a walking testament to surviving a stroke and heart surgery to coming back full circle with good health thanks to all who helped me through these events.
