🚑 Heather Dubrow to the Rescue! Terry Dubrow’s Close Call and How His Wife Turned Into a Lifesaver 🏥

Now that’s what you call a close call! 🤕 So, what exactly happened, and how are they dealing with it? 🤔

It all started with dinner at The Ivy. Terry Dubrow, Heather’s husband and the famous ‘Botched’ star, was enjoying a meal when he suddenly began slurring his words. Now, folks, what would you do if this happened to your partner? 😲 Panic? Brush it off? Not Heather. She’s the real MVP here.
Heather, not letting the situation slide, told her son to call 911. Terry, probably feeling like he was in a scene from his TV show, was not happy. “I’m fine,” he might’ve thought. Paramedics came, said he was good, and he even hopped out of the ambulance. But was he really fine? 🤨
Let’s give it up for Heather’s persistence! 👏 She was having none of this “I’m fine” nonsense and kept pushing Terry to go to the hospital. You know, the kind of pushing that makes you go, “Okay, fine, I’ll go!” 🏥
Doctors discovered Terry had a transient ischemic attack, or TIA, and a patent foramen ovale, or PFO (fancy name for a hole in the heart). The guy basically had a mini stroke-like episode, and it was a darn good thing Heather was there to act. How’s that for a plot twist? 🔄
Remember Hailey Bieber? Yeah, Terry’s medical scare was almost identical to what happened to her earlier this year. Coincidence or a trend we should be watching out for? 😶
So what’s the lesson here? Listen to your partner when they’re telling you something’s wrong, even if you feel fine? Or maybe that we should be more vigilant about our health? 🧐 Or perhaps that it’s good to have a spouse who won’t let you brush off the scary stuff?
Fortunately, Terry’s PFO was fixed on the spot, and he’s doing well. But the story could have ended very differently.
Now, we’ve got to give credit where credit is due. Heather’s determination probably saved Terry’s life. That’s not only commendable; it’s downright heroic! 🦸♀️ But it leaves us with a thought-provoking question: How often do we downplay our symptoms, thinking it’s nothing serious? And more importantly, how many people have someone like Heather to watch out for them?
Your Turn! Now we want to know your thoughts. Do you think we often take our health too lightly? Have you ever ignored symptoms, thinking they were no big deal, only to discover otherwise? What’s your take on Heather’s determination and Terry’s initial reluctance? Share your thoughts, and let’s get talking! 🎙️
