MICU Bride

Stephanie Turner, 22, a longtime cystic fibrosis patient, was hospitalized just a day before her scheduled wedding. After six weeks in the medical intensive care unit fighting infections, renal failure and delirium, Turner learned that the MICU team was planning a hospital wedding. Nurses decorated the bed; a family minister performed the ceremony before 30 people. “It was remarkable. I’ll never forget it,” says Turner, who lives in Westminster with her husband, Stephen.
