Shelly Peterson Is In Mercy Hospital

DMG and Shelly PetersonOne of my dearest friends, Shelly (Bernardini) Peterson, suffered a heart attack Saturday around noon in her Normal Heights kitchen.

Luckily, Shelly's husband Pete Peterson was there to begin CPR and call 911, and the ambulance crew arrived in time to be there when her heart stopped! All of them brought her back.

Shelly is recovering now at Mercy Hospital. She was sedated for two days, so she still is somewhat dazed and confused.

Please think about Shelly, pray for her one and all of you who read this, and if Shell ever crossed your path and made you laugh and/or smile even once, please visit her too!

This picture of Shelly and I was taken by Jeannie Portugal in 2003.
