My Big Sister, My Best Friend
31 August 2005
My name is Bethany Hurst and I am an 18 year old female living in Marion, Iowa. Just recently, July 27th, 2005, my older sister, suffered from a severe brain hemorrhage from an AVM.
In one day my sister went from being fine, to unconcious, to a hospital in Iowa City, to lying on a hospital bed with tubes everywhere, to a operation room where doctors pronounced her legally brain dead and harvested her organs. in a matter of hours I lost my big sister, my best friend, my whole world.
I think it's great to hear all of the good stories about this problem, but I believe it's the sad stories, the one's where things don't go so well that makes us really appreciate the good ones.
