Cardio care a core issue for nurse couple

Two nurses who work at Comanche County Memorial Hospital met at the hospital, got engaged and will be married on March 25 in the lodge at Quartz Mountain. Emily Underhill and Dylan Winters, both registered nurses, met when he was a nurse tech assigned to follow her for a day at the hospital.

Underhill works in the Cardiovascular Care Intensive Care Unit and Winters works in the Intensive Care Unit.

"I was working on a cardiovascular unit," Underhill said. "He was in between semesters at school. He came up on our unit to nurse tech. They had him follow me for the whole day."

The couple met about a year and a half ago and became engaged last Aug. 31.

"It's going to be nice," Winters said. "We're going to decorate and it's should be great. The lake should have some water in it."

February is Heart Month, the couple have a story to tell when it comes to heart health. It involves a flight they were on from Denver to Dallas.

"On the way back, we had quite a lot of turbulence," Underhill said. "At some point there was a little bit of commotion happening toward the front of the plane. There was a middle-aged man who was having some type of issue."
