A pregnant woman saved her husband’s life after she found him “in distress and not breathing” — a day before she was set to give birth to the couple’s first child.
When Ashley Goette heard her husband, Andrew, gasping for air in his sleep on Oct. 16, she called 911.
Ashley was instructed by the dispatcher to perform CPR until the paramedics arrived. After they discovered Andrew was in cardiac arrest, he was rushed to hospital in Minnesota, shares Yahoo news.
“In the first hours of treatment at the ER and ICU, the prognosis was dire,” according to a GoFundMe page describing the young family’s dramatic story.
“CT and MRI scans, along with clinical signs, pointed to catastrophic brain injury.
“The team of specialists treating Andrew prepared the family for the worst…it was likely he would not wake up from this.”
The ICU team got to work and lowered his body temperature to allow his brain to heal and put him in a medically induced coma.
On Oct. 18, Ashley was induced.
Hospital staff made arrangements for Andrew, who needed to be under 24-hour monitoring, to move into Ashley’s laboring room. His heart procedure was also rescheduled so he could be with his wife for the birth.
Lennon Andrew Goette was born on Oct. 19 at at 5:16 a.m. He weighed 6 pounds, 14 ounces (3.11kg).
Three days later, Andrew underwent heart surgery to resolve his arrhythmia.
