Other than needing a hernia fixed, Jerry Little was feeling just fine.
Ready to get it repaired, he visited a general surgeon hoping to be cleared
for surgery. Little did Jerry know, a standard test would reveal his heart
was in bigger trouble than his hernia.
A major blockage in his left anterior descending artery, known as the “widow
maker”, meant Jerry was on the verge of suffering a heart attack.
A stent was placed to remove the blockage but just one year later, more
blockages were found and Jerry would need Triple Bypass Heart Surgery
to save his life.
“I was scared but can’t say enough good things about the doctors
and nurses who cared for me,” expressed Jerry. Thanks to the nationally
recognized cardiac team at Kaweah Delta, less than one year after major
heart surgery, Jerry is thriving and thankful he gets to blow out another
year of birthday candles.
“My heart – my life – was in those doctors’ hands.
It’s amazing what they did for me.”
