Louise Hughes watched her now husband Dave get whisked away in an ambulance on their first date. Now, following his death, she has decided to retrain as a nurse
A whirlwind of emotions left Louise Hughes shattered as she saw her husband’s life ebb away.
In just a few short weeks she was married and widowed as heart transplant patient Dave, 32, succumbed.
At every step of the way, organ transplant nurses made his journey as easy as possible.
On the day of the wedding, they laid out tealights to create an aisle – and got a cake too.
In his final hours, they wheeled in a DVD player so the family could watch their little boy George’s favourite film, The Lion King.
Louise, 29, will never forget that warmth and care. And today she tells how she has retrained and is about to start work as a nurse at the Royal Albert Edward Infirmary in Wigan, Gtr Manchester.
