Devastated family share emotional tributes to hospital worker, 25, who died following asthma attack
DEVASTATED family members have paid emotional tribute to a hospital who died after an asthma attack.
Chloe Arnold, 25, died in intensive care at Walsall Manor Hospital on March 9.
She was hospitalized last Friday after suffering a respiratory arrest following an asthma attack and then contracting fluid in her brain.
Chloe had suffered from asthma since she was 18 months old.
A Clinical Support Worker, Chloe began work at Walsall Healthcare as a cadet on Ward 2 and spent five years there.
Family and friends paid tribute to the “perfect” 25-year-old after she passed away last week.
Chloe’s mother Sarah Porter said: “She was just perfect, amazing and loved by so many people. If love had kept Chloe alive, she would have lived for eternity.
“She was my best friend. I would give anything to get her back.
“She was always the life and soul of the party and the center of attention. She loved good parties and was always on the dance floor.”
Chloe lived in Darlaston with her mother and stepfather Mark Bradley, who performed CPR on Chloe when she had her asthma attack.
She is also survived by sisters Mercedes, 22, and Ellie Mae, 10, brother Henley, 11, father Wayne Arnold of Willenhall, and boyfriend of nine months, Jay Beech, 26.
Kate Follows, Nurse at Ward 2, said: “I knew Chloe very well. She was such a hard worker – when Chloe was working in a bay you knew the patients were safe and well cared for. She was one of the youngest employees, but always loud and bubbly.
“On her first day, she arrived spotless with perfect hair and makeup. When we went out she was always glamorous with her eyebrows and lashes looking amazing.”
A condolence book has been set up on Ward 2 for staff to leave messages.
And the colleagues on the ward will observe a minute’s silence at 6 p.m. today in her memory.
