I arrived at Banner Estrella and was immediately put on a respirator, life support for seven days.
In the ICU, the nurses would wake me and get right down to my face and encourage me to get better.
They told me if I got better they'd take me dancing. Of course, this didn't happen but if it were not for this one nurse hugging and talking to me on top of her other duties, I think I would have died. She was Romanian and . . . and she saved my life and pushed me and gave me the will to live.
When I went to a regular floor, those nurses were so wonderful as well. I did not have to wait for medication. They brought me special foods as my throat was so sore from being on the respirator. They really just encouraged me back to health, I have never been treated so well before or since.
