A woman who received life-saving treatment at her hospital also received a very sweet surprise there. Dorothy Lowman was treated to a surprise birthday party last Thursday thanks to the doctors and nurses of Medical City Dallas in Texas, USA. She turned 99 on Saturday - one month after she underwent a transcatheter aortic valve replacement procedure, reports ABC News.

"Yesterday, our staff threw a surprise 99th birthday party for one of our transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) patients," wrote Medical City Dallas in a Facebook post that has received a lot of love online.
