What are our patients saying about us?
At just 39 years old, I was given the gift of life. Believe it or not, I am a survivor of both an aneurysm and a stroke. My name is Lori Lebeau, and I consider myself a medical miracle because I was fortunate enough to be taken to the Comprehensive Stroke Center at St. Mary’s Medical Center.
Working at St. Mary’s Medical Center for over three decades, I never thought the day would come where the very same hospital I worked for, would have to save my own life. I exercised regularly, didn’t have any heart issues, didn’t smoke and wasn’t overweight. Overall I was healthy and had none of the typical risk factors, so my stroke came as a complete surprise to me.
It happened so fast, so unexpectedly and without warning. I had just returned home and wasn’t in the mood to cook dinner, so I grabbed a frozen pizza out of the fridge. To my surprise, the instructions on how to cook the pizza were blurry. The next thing I remember, my son Scott was kneeling over me asking if I knew my name. I could see my name written in the air, just floating there, but I couldn’t say it.
I work as the Human Resources Director for the City of West Palm Beach, and while in a meeting my hand began to curl and I had difficulty speaking. I called my wife and she suspected I was suffering a stroke.
