Guardian angels from St. Anthony's saved my life 25 years ago
I was brought to St.Anthony's 25 years ago today. I had been involved in a serious ATV accident with severe facial and head trauma. Dr. Albert Ruehl and the trauma team saved my life. I was in the hospital for about 8 months. In the ICU, I received outstanding care and their love and support helped in my recovery. I was moved up to the geriatric floor for further recovery and again all the nurses just took me under their wing. I would go into surgery with my favorite ICU nurses and mom smiling at me and assuring me everything would be alright. I even used to wake up to her smiling at me checking on me. Words can't express how grateful I am for all that this hospital has done for me. What they consider an everday job, most would consider a hero. They are all God-sent guardian angels who will forever hold a place in my heart. Please let them know I am doing great and living life to the fullest. God bless.
