Caring for Grace Cornejo

On October 13th, it was a normal day like any other, Grace got up did her morning routine and went off to work. While celebrating a co-worker's luncheon Grace suddenly began to feel ill. She reached for her forehead and then decided that she was not feeling well and made a decision to walk out side for some fresh air. Her co-workers followed Grace outside to ensure everything was fine. Grace at that point was leaning on the door frame. A co-worker brought out a chair so she could sit down and brought cold towels to help ease the headache. She was asked simple questions like what is today's date? what is your birthday and where are you? but could not answer correctly. The last thing Grace said was nine one one. At that point someone had already called the paramedics. She blacked out and was unresponsive to any further questions. She was loaded on to the gurney and taken by ambulance to the nearest hospital. It was determined that Grace had suffered a Cerebral Aneurysm on the right side of her brain and was in excruciating pain and needed to go into surgery as soon as possible! The operation lasted a little over 6.5 hours and since then we have been at her side with prayer and well wishes for her recovery. God bless Grace Chris Eric & Angel and family and friends.
