Beverly recalls any symptoms she experienced before she had a heart attack and describes her positive experience at Banner North Colorado Medical Center.
Back in 2007, I didn’t really have any symptoms that told me I was going to have a heart attack. My husband and I had been out to dinner, had a wonderful evening, went home and I think I probably changed in more comfortable clothes, it was a warm time of year, and I said, “You know, I am just not feeling quite right”.
My arms were tingling and kind of going numb and he immediately thought he was going to call an ambulance, and I said, “Oh no, no, no, we’ll just call next door neighbor because she is a nurse”. So she came over and took one look and she said, “No, we are calling an ambulance”. I had a spectacular heart attack really. I arrested three times. They brought me back three times, but I didn’t have any symptoms leading up to it necessarily.
Our oldest daughter is a nurse in Omaha, Nebraska and she has been employed for many years at the University of Nebraska Medical Center, which is a state-of-the-art transplant. It’s a big, big facility. So when she had heard that I had my heart attack she shared this with her colleagues of course and they said, “Oh, little town in Colorado, oh.”
But they all got online and started looking and found out that this has a very, very high rating nationwide. So, she was impressed with that. I am likewise impressed and North Colorado Medical Center has been here for us, no reason to go any place else, it’s a very good facility.
