During a routine doctor’s visit, Deborah Wissen’s cardiologist ordered a scan of her head and neck. Her doctor had been monitoring her carotid artery, a major blood vessel in the neck, and wanted to take a closer look. The image revealed a surprise: Wissen had two aneurysms in her brain.
“I think it was divine intervention why he would do a brain scan,” Wissen, 64, of Avon, Indiana, told TODAY. “My belief is God knew I needed to have that.”
