June 2022 Spotlight is on UMC Hospital
University Medical Center of Southern Nevada
I am honored and blessed to acknowledge UMC Medical Center for the exemplary work that they do. It has been two years almost to the date that I had to have emergency surgery. I admitted myself into the hospital in the height on the COVID-19 pandemic. I was alone and afraid. I sought emergency treatment for what I believed was a gall bladder attack. After admittance it was discovered that I had life threatening ovarian tumors. I remember being so scared. The hospital was on COVID-19 lockdown. I didn't have my family with me to console me. The surgery was crucial to saving my life, but I was fearful of being alone. I expressed my sentiments to everyone that administered care to me, the nurses, doctors and support staff. I received an outpour of support from everyone...everyone!
I even had doctors and nurses praying with me. The day finally came when the surgical team met with me. After speaking with them I felt assured that I would survive! However, during post-op, I was informed that I was bleeding internally. I asked to borrow a cell phone from one of the attendants, I don't know where I got the strength. I called my mom again to pray for me. I immediately went back into surgery to stop the bleeding. Had it not been for the care that I received from the hospital and its affiliates, I would not be here today. To those special people at UMC, you know who you are, thank you for all that you do!
