Twenty-one years ago this October 2nd, I survived a ruptured Right Posterior Communicating Artery Aneurysm in the Circle of Willis. It was 9mm when it blew and pumped just over 2 units of blood through all four ventricles and down my cord. Supposedly non-survivable but luckily I worked as a trauma nurse where I was treated at the University setting and had immediate and a little VIP-type care. Multiple failed VP shunts later, I am without a shunt, working as an RN still in a critical care setting and if I hadn't mentioned anything, none of my colleagues would have been to the wiser of anything neurological ever occurring in my past.

Sometimes it’s better to be lucky than be good. Wishing you a long, healthy life. You’ve earned it.
