suffered a heart attack while on a farm sit last month. Being the feisty
and organized lady we all know and love, Davera was able to not only
call 911 but also her daughter, Skye before opening the gate to allow
EMS on the property and gathered her personal belongings while
waiting on the porch before she coded. EMS arrived in just the nick of
time, Davera's heart stopped just as they pulled up. With the closest 
hospital too far away she was transported to UVA in a helicopter. Help got to her just in time, if they had arrived just a few minutes later we 
wouldn't still have Davera here with us. 

Many (especially, members with Bull Run Hunt) have felt Davera's
warm and generous heart. She is the first one to jump in and help,
whether it is coaching from the sidelines or organizing her famous Wild Game Dinner each year. She has been a mentor to many of us and we 
can't wait for her to rejoin us back in the hunt field. 

Unfortunately, the cost of an almost two week hospitalization, being
med flighted to UVA, follow up appointments and months of cardiac
rehabilitation ahead are starting to pile up. She primarily supports
herself through farm sitting and horse show judging. Doctors are
confident she will make a full recovery but advised her that she won't
be able to return to work until at least June 2019. While Davera works hard to recover, let us all help support her and chip in towards her
medical bills. She will also need help getting to and from her cardiac
rehab appointments 3 times a week if anyone would like to act as her
chauffeur.

Davera asked that I share an update. She is overwhelmed with everyones generosity. Her exact words were, "It is totally unbelievable. Who would have thought so many people would care. It is truly humbling."

Davera went in for an outpatient procedure on Friday 11/16, after her cardioversion she was feeling great! Unfortunately, waking up early Saturday morning she experienced symptoms similar to her heart attack. She returned to the ED at UVA where she was admitted overnight. Her symptoms returned full force early Sunday morning, luckily being in the hospital doctors were able to intervene. This morning she is scheduled for a cardiac cathertization. Please keep her in your thoughts and prayers today.
