  1. “My Horse let me ride a Helicopter!”
    We had just moved from New Orleans to Ohio (six years ago). Our horses finally arrived and I was so excited to finally have them in our back yard. The first ride at our new home!

    . As I rode him around the new territory, he was a little jumpy. Trying to trot became his cue to ” let the good times roll!” In my case, it was me that ended up unconscious in the pasture. Pleasant Township was called and quickly responded. There in the pasture stood my horse Comanche, looking over me along with my dog. Off on the bed of a pick up truck, into the ambulance and off to Madison County Hospital!

    Doctors were afraid I had a spinal cord injury. I was informed that it would be best to fly to Ohio State for treatment. The crew was fantastic! They told me everything that was going to happen. At that time the only thing that bothered me was my hair was being pulled by the cervical collar. The attendant helped relieve the pulling the best he could. Flying over Ohio, I felt that angels were right outside the helicopter. Landing at Ohio State everything went fast with doctors, nurses and staff calling out instructions. One nurse proclaimed, ” I found a tick! I found a tick!”

    Things calmed down and with thankful prayers I did not have any injuries! I always am thankful each time I see a helicopter lift off, knowing that they will be given the ultimate care as they fly with the Angels—both aboard and outside!

    With grateful thanks to the staff,

  2. Well on November 10th 2014 my daughter was rushed to the emergency room I had no idea what was wrong she gave us a big scare within minutes the doctors abd nurses were trying to stabilize her and then about an hour later med flight showed up got my baby ready to go and we were headed to Columbus. They made sure that they kept me very informed with what was going on. Even when things went bad. I will never forget the day that the flight nurse looked at me and said we have to land in zanesville because my baby girl was coding and they wanted to try and get her restablized even when we landed they took very good care of my baby and kept me very informed after they got her back stabilized we headed toward Columbus once again just minutes away from Columbus my baby started to code again they got her to the hospital safety and quickly I will never be able to show them how truly thankful I am for them they are a big reason in why my baby girl is still alive today
