In Memory of cindy
It is with deepest regret and sorrow that we inform our clients that Dr. Cindy Geisler passed away on 8/5/16, at UW Medical Center in Seattle, after suffering a massive stroke.
Dr. Cindy, who in April developed deep thrombosis (blood clots) on her leg, had been fighting the prospect of pulmonary embolism with her usual optimism and grace. But last week a CT scan showed that little clots had indeed detached from the leg and lodged in her lungs. This caused hypertension in the lungs, and that in turn caused the reopening of a fetal communication we have in the heart (foramen ovale). This hole allowed the clots to shoot into her brain.
In spite of all our medical advances and the efforts of neurovascular surgeons, we lost her.Our grieving MercyVet family will miss dear Dr. Cindy so much. She was loved by all, coworkers, clients, pets. Bernese mountain dogs everywhere will miss her.Cindy is survived by her husband of 37 years, Mark Darrach, and her beloved Colima. Cindy had just turned 57 years old.Condolences sent to MercyVet will be forward to her family.A message from Cindy's husband, Mark, with information on Cindy's Memorial Services as follows:
We are a full service holistic veterinary hospital located in the Puget Sound region.
