Florida teacher undergoes heart surgery, married in hospital

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. — Daniel Pecoraro and Lisa Siegel weren’t supposed to get married on a Monday.

But from his hospital bed in southeast Florida on Nov. 7, Pecoraro decided that day was going to be the best day of their lives.

He had been admitted to HCA Florida JFK Hospital in Atlantis, just south of West Palm Beach, three days earlier with chest pains – only to learn he needed triple bypass surgery days before the couple’s planned wedding ceremony.

“I said, ‘Let’s get married right away. Call the rabbi and have him come here,’” Pecoraro recalls. “We had the marriage license and I didn’t want to lose it.”

The wedding was hastily arranged, but the wedding surely was not. Siegel and Pecoraro had been engaged for eight years and were planning a quaint ceremony at his mother’s house in Boynton Beach with a grand dinner party afterwards.

Then everything changed.
