Over EZ with Rick

Affairs Of The Heart

You probably noticed the picture of me and Diane on the front page of the KEZW website.  Couple of kids that are still pretty fond of one another after 34-years of marriage.  Pictures are wonderful, but they never tell the full story.  That's the part that lives just past the edges of the photograph.  and many times that's the most important part of the story.  If you could see past the edges of our pictures you'd see a very close family of two daughters, three grandchildren and an extended family from Rhode Island to Oregon.  You'd see more friends than any two people should be allowed to have.  You'd see travels around the world.  And you'd see the Medical Center of Aurora.

In August 2006 my best friend, and wife of 34-years, Diane suffered a stroke.  As soon as we recognized the signs we got in our car and drove immediately to Aurora South, the Medical Center of Aurora.  What happened over the course of the next week there was nothing short of miraculous.  The staff at the hospital slowly, and surely, nursed Diane back to health and helped an unsure caregiver do what he needed to do to support his partner.  You don't practice for a stroke, you pray you'll never have one.  But if you're faced with it there's no better place to be.  From nurses to speech therapists to doctors we received nothing but top notch care and we will be forever thankful.

This Saturday I get a small chance to say thanks.  The Medical Center of Aurora is opening a new Heart Tower and Saturday KEZW listeners can join me from 9a to 10:30a for a continental breakfast and exclusive sneak peek of the Museum of Heart.  See for yourself why Diane and I think this is a special place.  You might even ask Diane a question, or two, about her own recovery.  We know there will be many more photos, and many more stories around the edges.  We thank you for being part of the story.
