Topic:  When all else fails, lean into breath, gratitude and most importantly, love

MelissaDSC_0407A young wife and mother, who had always been healthy, felt hopeful that her future would be robust.  She knew she had so many reasons to live, yet found herself witnessing the final moments of her own life just five hours after the birth of her second child.   What had gone so wrong that several hours after holding her newborn son and celebrating his healthy arrival with her husband, caused her to take her last breath during an event such as sudden cardiac arrest?

For three and half hours doctors, nurses and other essential hospital staff members worked tirelessly to revive her lifeless body.  They labored to uncover what horrible thing had happened that would potentially strip two children of a mother who dearly wanted and needed to be there for them.

After rounds of CPR, defibrillation and other interventions, she was stable enough to be moved to a nearby trauma center and placed into a medically induced coma.  It was there where her husband and family were told that she had very little chance of survival.  While they were comforting her, they also began to prepare her for her departure from their physical world.

Feeling helpless, her family, friends and countless amounts of other people did the only thing they could think of to help her, they prayed and prayed and when they got done praying, they prayed some more.  In a remarkably short period of time, her blood oxygen saturation level improved.  She began to show signs of a neurological response and many doctors concurred that a true miracle had occurred.

When she finally awoke from the coma, she found herself tethered to a bed, intubated and connected to machines that loudly indicated she was not here without support.  There was confusion and an enormous gap of time, followed by a medical explanation that would leave her feeling let down by her own heart, yet overjoyed that it was strong enough to see her through such an amazing event.

Fast-forward seven months, and learn how she is living with a disease that is often silent, yet loudly shocking.  When no medical expert could assure her that she was going to fully recover, she experienced insurmountable moments of being paralyzed by the fear of missing out on being a mother to her children and missing out on the life she had envisioned herself living.  She found that the only thing she needed to do was just breathe.  Knowing fully that it is all about love, she believes that in those frantic moments her heart broke and healed all at the same time.  From a place of gratitude, it is her wish to empower others to survive and thrive in the face of fear and uncertainty.

BIO: Melissa M Casey was raised in a rural New England town and has always had an affinity and connection to the great outdoors.  Her maternal instincts grew exponentially through her love of animals.   She takes great pride in her role as a wife, a mother, a daughter, a sister, a friend and a cheerleader of humanity.

Melissa has a bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education and Physical Education. For the past fifteen years, she has worked as a certified personal fitness trainer.  Nationally certified by The American Council on Exercise and The National Council on Strength and Fitness, she independently operates Defining Movements, a small private home-based training studio.  It is there where her passion and creativity is able to soar.   Her approach to training seems to attract clients who are looking to improve their overall quality of life.   Through proper exercise selection, Melissa is able to help her clients achieve a healthy lifestyle, a healthy attitude and shows them how to age on their own terms.

After uncovering her own attraction to yoga and yoga philosophy, she recently completed her 200hr RYT. Although overwhelmed with the possibilities of how to share yoga with others, she is hopeful that one day she will be able to build on the idea of sharing yoga with people who suffer from PTSD, to create workshops that help empower young women to be more accepting of themselves and to hold yoga fundraisers for the betterment of an array of causes and needs.

She is fed by her desire to help others, encouraging them to live in the moment by ‘bringing the breath out of their movements.’
