Can you imagine something as simple as stepping on a toothpick leading to 4 cardiac arrests and a heart transplant over a 20 year time span? That’s the reality faced by Sebastian Hitzig. We were inspired and shocked by the miracle surgery and recovery that allowed Sebastian to be standing in the room with us. This topic was close to member Marsha’s heart (intentionally worded) due to her experience with her son Logan’s congenital heart problems from birth. Both Sebastian and Logan are standing strong today due to the miracles of modern medicine. In other news, Jim McLees brought us a flag from the Rotary Club of Northfield, Minnesota. He mentioned how everyone in the Northfield club exemplifies the “Minnesota Nice” stereotype!
