Maria Yantorno, is a loving mother of 2, a yoga teacher and the owner of Fly Yoga Miami, she’s extremely passionate and loves her students.
On Monday May 6th, 2019 Maria fainted and hit her head, she was taken to the emergency room and after exams and tests were done, she was diagnosed with a 6 mm brain Aneurysm, she was place on emergency surgery since her life was at risk.
While in surgery, it was discovered that the problem was much bigger than expected, instead of the 1 Aneurysm, she had 3 Aneurysms and one of them was ruptured, blood was leaking into the brain, and the others were close to bursting, putting Maria’s life in extreme danger.
Surgery was long, it was initially label to be 1.5 hours but with the new diagnoses and complications, it turned out to be about 5 hours long.
After the surgery, there is still high concerns for her well being, due to blood spilt into her brain, which can cause other life threatening complications. She still needs intensive care for at least 20 days after the surgery, so that specialists can continue to monitor that the blood flows out of her brain successfully.
Maria is suffering from extreme pain, thru her head, spine, legs and overall body. She has been showing progress day to day but she’s still has a long way to go, even after she is released from the hospital she is expected to continued her recovery thru out the year.
