Gratitude for UNC's Heart Failure team

Vital Signs features an article by Qing Zhang, PhD, associate professor in the department of pathology and laboratory medicine, on the lifesaving care his wife Mingjie received. Minjie required multiple surgeries, extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO), as well as other treatments after the flu exacerbated an underlying heart condition, causing her heart function to fail. Dr. Zhang thanks the large team of UNC providers involved, including her surgeons, heart failure doctors, infectious disease doctors, and others. Dr. Zhang notes that Life often takes unexpected turns, you never know what expect around the next curve. I am truly thankful that I am still able to hold on to my wife, my children and my family. In Mingjie's room at the UNC hospital, there is a white board with the phrase, "Getting to Know You." On it we wrote, "She was the sickest one in the hospital and is glad she has made it." Read the full article here.
