After a traumatic fall on the farm, I broke all 12 ribs in numerous places and my clavicle on the right side. Needless to say, I was in constant pain and suffered from severe muscle spasms. Michelle, in coordination with an APN, worked with me to try to find a level of comfort. Due to the complication of narcotics in my system, I was unable to eliminate stool. My abdomen got larger which complicated my already compromised breathing due to bilateral pneumonia.

Michelle was an angel working with me day after day until I was able to work through the situation. Believe me when I say that her care was beyond the call of duty. And through it all, her attitude was positive, uplifting, and never rushed. Her care was professional and personal.
