Kim Campbell explains that her mother went in for surgery on August 22, 2015 at a Horry county hospital located an hour north of Vibra Charleston. “The operation was complete, it was successful, but Mom never woke up.”
Sheree Wright remained in a comatose state for about four weeks, she was on a ventilator and her condition was “pretty bad.” She was transferred down to Vibra Hospital of Charleston, only a short ride from Georgetown. She was there for a week under the care of the Vibra nurses, doctors and staff. “We had all been visiting a lot, and when we were back home, you know, we were calling down there every few hours or so. One day when I called, I was told that she had awakened and had a general awareness of what was going on. She had a trach, so she couldn’t talk, but she was awake!” exclaims Kim.
Ms. Campbell cited the steady progress and traced her mother’s progressive healing from the LTAC (Long Term Acute Care) side to the TCU (Transitional Care Unit) side where her condition continued to improve. She was weaned off the ventilator and gained enough strength to be placed in another facility closer to her home that she shares with another daughter. “I was especially grateful to three of the nurses that I had the most contact with, two ladies and a gentleman nurse as well. They did so much for her, and they always let me know how much better she was doing. Mom has another operation ahead of her soon, but she is ready for it,” Kim concludes.
As of this writing, Ms. Wright is awaiting that planned surgical procedure. She will be able to continue her path to wellness strengthened by her successful recuperation at Vibra Hospital of Charleston.Posted By
