Couple Married at Northwestern Memorial Hospital Heading Home
By Kara SpakNews April 11, 2014
Lewis Stepp and Monica Kaufman Stepp, who wed April 3 in the Northwestern Memorial Hospital chapel, are heading home to start their married life together. Stepp was discharged Friday.
"I've got probably three weeks at home recuperating before I get back to work," Lewis Stepp said. "Then we will try to have a little mini-honeymoon. Thank you to everyone at Northwestern for all that you have done.”
While vacationing in Mexico in March, Stepp experienced a blocked artery that caused him to lose feeling to his lower extremities. The April 4 surgery, performed by Andrew Hoel, MD, a vascular surgeon with Northwestern’s Bluhm Cardiovascular Institute, bypassed the damaged artery to restore blood flow to Stepp’s legs.
