Dawn Lemieux came to Vibra Hospital of Fargo after an aspiration event led to cardiac arrest and respiratory failure. When Dawn arrived at Vibra, she required a ventilator to breathe and could not eat. Without assistance, Dawn could not move in bed nor stand or perform self-care activities.

With the help of Vibra's interdisciplinary care team, Dawn made great progress in her recovery. The staff helped Dawn work through her anxiety of participating in therapy. Soon, she wanted from the ventilator and increased the intensity of her therapies.

When Dawn's stay at Vibra was complete, she discharged home with her husband. She no longer requires oxygen, can walk 500 feet, and climb six stairs. Dawn can also complete bed mobility and self-care activities independently. She is back to a regular diet and her memory is improving. Dawn thanks Vibra for "great care and getting me to where I can go home."
