The team ran tests and stabilized her, but kept her blood pressure intentionally low, realizing it was the safest thing for her. Medically, it is called "permissive hypotension." To allow the blood pressure to rise to normal levels would allow her to bleed faster. Then they loaded her into an ambulance and sent her to NorthBay Medical Center. "If each member of the team is a branch of the tree, Joanne was the trunk" says Dr. Naficy. "I knew she was in a position to quickly connect everyone together."
When he came home in 1944, it was to a hero's welcome. The 22 year old carried with him the Distinguished Flying Cross, with a Purple Heart, and four air medals. His family threw a big party for him in Los Angeles. That night he met his future bride, a reluctant teenage guest who didn't have any interest being at a party for a solider she'd never met.
When Betty was rolled into the operating room, there was no time for discussion. Dr. Naficy had to make the first incision in her groin, using only local anesthetic, while a team of two anesthesiologists hurried to set up an IV.
Betty was conscious and breathing when she was wheeled in. "I asked her if she was willing to take some serious risks to save her life, and she said yes," recalls Dr. Naficy. "I decided that there was hope and that she had a chance."
"Most patients with this problem die within minutes to an hour," says Dr. Dennis. "We figured out that her aneurysm likely ruptured in the early hours of the morning, and blood was slowly filling her abdomen. when they brought her in to see me is remarkable."
Something wasn't right.
She knew enough to tell Dr. Craig Dennis that if surgery was her only chance to survive, she wanted it.
As "board runner" that morning for the surgery department, one of Joanne's first calls was to the blood bank, making sure they were prepared for a mass transfusion.
Technically speaking, Betty's odds were not good. Aneurysms are the 13th leading cause of death in the United States. Only a small fraction of people who suffer a rupture make it to the hospital, and only half of those survive the surgery. Fewer than that survive the prolonged recovery. At 86, and with a series of health issues including the recent placement of stents in coronary arteries, and on medication to prevent blood clots from forming, Betty's chance of survival was 10 percent at best.
"VacaValley Hospital is the closest," Morry reasoned.
Then he hustled to the Emergency Department to meet Betty when she arrived.

Less than six months later, they married. He was 22, she was 18. "I promised her then that I'd always be there to take care of her, and I'm still taking care of her today," says Morry. "It's gotten pretty hard lately, but I'm not about to give up."
Surgical Team Moves in Tandem at the Speed of Life
Morry Wasserman, a retired Air Force officer and pilot, faced formidable odds himself during World War II, when he flew 34 missions in a B 17 bomber over Germany.
Morry Wasserman, 91, knew it the minute he woke up Aug. 22, 2012, and noticed his wife Betty had slipped out of bed to use the bathroom. She called through the door that she was fine, but moments later she stumbled into their bedroom, a sight he'll never forget.
Kevin Bowman and Richard Smith from Medtronic in Santa Rosa arrived just in time to deliver a quickly configured stent graft combination designed to fit Betty's aorta.
In addition to the surgeon, two anesthesiologists, four nurses, a technician, and others came and went as needed, including three radiologists, blood bank staff and more.

Today, he considers it one of the best decisions he's ever made. His best decision? To marry Betty 67 years ago.
He took one look at Betty and insisted on a date. "I couldn't shake him," chuckles Betty.
that morning and was leaking at a steady pace. By the time she arrived at VacaValley Hospital's Emergency Department, her blood pressure was extremely low, but she was conscious and alert, and able to answer questions.
"Thank goodness we're a Level III Trauma Center," recalls Joanne. "New protocols with the blood bank now ensure that there's always a cooler of O Negative ready at a moment's notice. That's the only blood type that can be given to anyone without issue. Being able to give her blood when she was ready for it made a huge difference in this case."
"Think of it as making a custom designed three piece suit based on a phone conversation," explains Dr. Naficy. "I barked a quick series of numbers on the line over a span of a minute while the patient was rolled into the OR. Usually, a rigorous computer based process would design the stent."
"It was very tricky," explains Dr. Naficy. "Because she had stents placed in July, she was on blood thinners. We did not want to have to open her abdomen for surgery if we could help it. She also had a lot of Reebok Freestyle Hi
"It was organized chaos," remembers Joanne.

blood pooling in her abdomen."
He dialed 9 1 1, and then hustled down the stairs, ignoring the pain in his back and the neuropathy in his legs, to open the door for paramedics. Once they arrived, the question was where to take her.
"Betty was constantly bleeding, so her pressure was dropping," explains Dr. Naficy. "If we had tried to raise it too quickly or if it dropped too low, she would not have survived. We had to move fast if we were going to save her."
