I am a 65 year old woman who is disabled and living on a limited income. On February 11, 2020, I had major surgery to remove my colon and then attached my rectum to my small intestine. I was released on the 3rd day. Five days later, my husband found me unresponsive and took me to ETMC in Athens where they found a hole the size of a quarter had not been sewn or the intestine and rectum being attached. They had to call Baylor Scott and White Hospital in Dallas to get permission to do emergency surgery on me. Baylor told the doctor I had to come back to Baylor. He told them he didn’t think I would survive the ambulance ride or a care flight. As they prepared me for the care flight, the doctor told my husband I was going back to Baylor and he didn’t know if I would make it. Before my husband could get to Baylor, I was in surgery. When the doctor came out he told my husband he might want to call in the family because he gave me a 20% survival rate. I was in a coma and when I woke up my husband, daughter, granddaughter, and younger sister were there.
