It’s been a crazy time since my last post, lots of texts and phone calls with family. I didn’t post anything, wanted to be sure there was a positive outcome.
My #3 son (Asher) who is the youngest of my children, had a massive heart attack on March 24. He survived (thank God) – and that’s another story. Anyway, the doctor called the artery that was blocked “the widowmaker” and said many people don’t survive that. They put in 2 stents on the Friday of the heart attack and another on the following Monday. He got to go home on Tuesday, but is very limited in what he can do. Currently he’s going to ‘cardiac therapy’.
He was back in the pulpit this past Sunday.
Thankful to the Lord that he still hears us and answers prayers.
Hi Ruth Ann, thanks for stopping by. I’m truly thankful to the Lord!
I’m sorry to hear that Asher had a massive heart attack but so very thankful to God that he survived and they were able to do stents. My husband had triple bypass at age 49, 15 years ago before he had a heart attack. Cardiac therapy will be helpful to him as he recovers. I know this was scary for you and the whole family, Iris.
Oh my, I didn’t realize your hubby was a heart attack survivor. Did he have a heart attack after bypass surgery?
Asher is doing cardiac therapy, plus pretty long walks with his dog. But yoou are right – it’s VERY scary, and being so far away didn’t help any, but I know God protected him and I’m so very thankful.
Thanks for the kind words. I’m going to be praying for your hubby too.
No, my husband never has had a heart attack. They did the bypass before he could have one, as a preventative measure. His older brother did have a massive heart attack which alerted my hubby to get checked out and they found he had several blockages putting him at risk. So that’s why he had the triple bypass. It’s been almost fifteen years and he’s doing well. Hopefully no issues will arise. It was very scary when he had to have surgery, though. I’m so thankful that he had the surgery though. I’m grateful for your prayers for him and… Read more »
Oh, sorry I misunderstood. So glad he’s doing well. Just found out they’re considering a difibulator for Asher. Thank you for continuing to pray for him.
My husband had a similar experience 5 years ago with a widow maker heart attack and two stents. He became extremely focused on diet and exercise, lost 100 lbs., and is a new person. His cardiologist is thrilled. He followed the Ornish plan, which is the basis of most cardiac rehab programs, but he did it at home as there were no programs available where we are. My best to your son. I hope he has a similar outcome.
Oh my, thank you so much for the info. My son was working on his diet when this happened, but he had probably waited too long. He had an appt today with his cardiologist and I know he’s still doing cardio rehab. I’ll mention your info to him – but who knows if he’ll follow it. He’s been on a KETO diet for while now. Thank you again for your info and kind thoughts.
