It’s probably safe to say that this Thanksgiving might be just the most thankful ever for Mark Dills of New Martinsville. That is because he has his very life for which to give thanks.

He credits the fact that he is still alive to medical professionals and “the Good Lord.”

On Sept. 19 Dills had an all-terrain vehicle accident on in the middle of Limestone Ridge Road in Wetzel County. He ended up with 10 broken ribs and a collapsed lung. He was transferred to Wheeling Hospital where he was in a medically-induced coma for 21 days and underwent five surgeries. It was during two of those surgeries that he is told he “died on the table.” But he knows it wasn’t his time to leave this world, because he came back to life.

“Thank the Good Lord and that surgeon who put my broken body back together,” praises Dills.

On Oct. 23 he was transported to Genesis Health and Rehabilitation Center in New Martinsville. “What a top notch team effort I observed,” raved Dills of the center. “From my experience, this group increased my will and desire to heal. From top to bottom, I witnessed this group work miracles, with help from above, I’m sure.”

He added that they do all their work with a smile and offer comfort beyond belief.

“Thank you Genesis for taking care of me. In my book you are a top notch class act group of professionals,” offered Dills.

Two weeks later he was released from the center, declaring, “Look where I’m at!”

“Thank God for a second chance on life,” proclaimed Dills. “The good Lord had a lot to do with it, but they were the other half.”
