The Story About An Aorta Aneurysm

It was years ago when I was in college. My friend liked this girl, but he was shy. I kinda of set them up, but they took it from there. She was a pretty and a nice girl, but she had some sort of physical problem. She always had problems, but the doctor could never find out what was wrong with her. Nobody had an idea that she had an aorta aneurysm until it was too late. My friend married this girl, they had three beautiful children  and moved away to begin their lives together. Some years later, he calls me and tells me he lost her life. She died suddenly and he did not know what to do. That was the first time I ever heard about an aorta aneurysm. It was the scariest and saddest thing I ever heard of. I felt really bad for my friend, but I had no idea what I could do. I told him I was there for him, but he lived hundreds of miles away and we eventually lost touch. This guy met the love of his life and lost her suddenly.

Years later, I was at a party with some friends. One of the ladies passed out and she was rushed to the hospital They did a ton of tests on her and found an aorta aneurysm that had to be operated on. As soon as I heard this, memories of my friend popped into my head. I did not know this lady too well, but she was friends with a very good friend of mine. The family thanked us for being there with their daughter. They told us their daughter had to have an important operation on her heart. The operation was successful and the lady survived the biggest scare of her life. She is healthy and is living a wonderful life. I still look back to my friend and wish they found out what was wrong with his wife in time.

 I believe medicine has advanced a lot of the past twenty years or so. Doctors can find problems now that slipped by them in the past. If my friend's wife was born twenty years later, she would likely have had a great chance to survive. This does not help my friend, but it helps many of other people who have loved ones who need this important surgery. Modern medicine has improved leaps and bounds since I was in college. I am sure we will see more miracles happen in medicine in the near future.
