Thank you, Melodee Hoffer!!!!!!!!!!!!

A couple of years ago, I was diagnosed with asthma. For the most part, it does not cause me much of a problem. But today, I had spent the morning working at the Scott County Courthouse. On my way home, a VERY serious asthma attack happened to me on the highway between Modoc and Marienthal. All of a sudden, I had absolutely NO air. To say that I was terrified would be a definite understatement. To make matters even worse, I had just run out of my emergency inhalers a few days ago. I admit that I kinda lost it. I hit the brakes and pretty much came to a halt right there on the highway. Fortunately, no one was coming from behind me.

I considered dialing 9-1-1 but realized that that would be senseless considering the fact that I was calling on my cellphone and was unable to breathe--let alone talk. I didn't figure that the dispatcher would know who was using my cellphone or where I was located.

Just then, I saw Melodee coming towards me in her car. As soon as she realized that my van was not moving very quickly, she turned around to see if I needed assistance. You have absolutely NOOO idea just how much better I felt knowing that Melodee was there to help me!!! Eventually, I was able to breathe normally again. The chest pain is all but completely gone now.

Anyway, I just wanted to let you all know that Melodee is my heroine!!!

Thank you, Melodee!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



  1. Melodee really is a great gal. I've never seen anyone so compassionate and caring for animals. What a wonderful person! She's definitely an asset to Wichita County

  2. I COMPLETELY agree!!! I also agree with you about her dedication to animals of all kinds. We need more people out there like Melodee! Right now, she is working on a new project that will help stray dogs and cats in our area. I plan to be a part of that project. Once I have more information on that, I will be posting it here. I doubt if we will be able to start on it until after January 1st. Right now, everyone is too busy... Thank you so much for kind comment!!! VLE-B
