    Thankful Father

    First I would like to thank everyone who took the time out to say prayers for my daughter Megan, also the generosity shown by many of you, I cant name you all but you know who you are, is greatly appreciated by my family for Megans recovery. We can not believe the outpouring of love and well wishes by both our local community and the community of social media.

    Two days before Megans cardiac arrest we celebrated her 28th birthday at Long Horns. She made her typical glutton of herself.

    Beside having a pacemaker implanted about two years ago because of a low heart rate Megan worked 3 full time jobs as an EMT on different squads in the county having a hand full of CPR saves to her credit which both she and us were very proud of.

    Well two days later, not feeling well, her mom convinced her to go to the emergency room just to be safe. All down hill from there. She had a seizure in the ER and stopped breathing, had it not been for her mom being there and preforming CPR on her while yelling for the nursing staff she might have died right there. Note my wife Debbie is a retired ER Nurse and EMT very well respected in our community, If you sick or injured this is the person you want by your side.

    Short story is Megan is moved to a Post Cardiac Unit where later that evening she goes into full cardiac arrest. The medical team worked on Megan for 45 minutes the doctor yelling at the nurses that shes two young to give up on. Thank God he didnt and they finally got a pulse back. We arraigned to have a helicopter fly from Temple University in Philly and come and transport Megan there. Deb and I jumped in our car and headed out figuring the worst. This is what we walked into at Temple.

    Megan on full life support in ICU. She stayed this way for two weeks. Every day we traveled the 2 hours to Philly to spend as much time as they would allow us to stay. Than the news that she had suffered hypoxia (brain damage due to lack of oxygen). Only time would tell how much damage. We were devastated. She had just bought a new car and was headed back to school to get her Paramedic license.

    So finally she starts breathing on her own so they put in a trach. Insert a feeding tube into her stomach and leave it into Gods hands (and the Doctors). Slowly she started to come around. Not to alert at first but good to see her open them big blue eyes even though they were distant. Than she started following us when we came in the room. We could get her to blink yes and no. She started to smile when talking to her or if my mustache tickled her when I kissed her. She was in there and yes trying to come out.

    Well its been 29 days of ups and downs and they finally decided it was time to move her to an Acute Care Rehab closer to home. Luckily there is one just up the road and we have some very influential friends in high places that made it happen, private room in a just opened new wing right next to the nurses desk.

    As you might have read in Tony's and Bud's post we even got to let her dog Murphy see her before being admitted to the Rehab.

    What you are dealing with Mike is almost impossible for many to understand. A beautiful young lady going thru what seems near impossible is enough but to have it be your kid takes it to a new level. I am glad you posted the pics. Looks very encouraging. Prayers will continue for Megan and your family.

    I know the power of prayer, i am recovering from my own illness, and are very thankful to the family and friends who prayed for me, so I now pray for Magen,
    and recite the Healing Prayer that was given to me and pass it on to her. May God Bless.

    Last week my UPS lady made a delivery and I asked her how she was , she was particularly sad and told me one of her sons buddy had taken his own life the night before he was 12 years old , her and I sat on her running board and cried like babies, guess the “moral” to this is poor Megan is fighting with all her being for her life and a perfectly healthy young man takes his for little to no reason , I pray for both hopefully Ms. Megan can reach out for the Lord’s mighty hand and recover from this tragedy in her life

    Having been in your shoes my thoughts and prayers have been with you and will continue.
    As for us we have not seen each other since maybe the 80s (70s?) but when I was injured a while back he reached out and stayed in touch.
    Best wishes to Megan and thanks to Bud for making us all aware.
