On October 31st, Halloween morning, my husband Will had a massive heart attack. He was feeling an extreme amount of pressure on his chest and arms while driving a semi. He then became disoriented and didn't know where he was, even though he has drove that road almost everyday. He called his dispatcher/friend when getting to the feedlot and had her take him to the hospital in Gothenburg. Will had multiple tests done, being 39 healthy, no family history of heart disease, not a smoker, not overweight, or drinker they didn't think it was a heart attack at first. After the some of the tests came back they said that it was a heart attack and they wanted to fly him to Good Samaritan in Kearney. It was snowy and icy that day so they ended up having to send him in an ambulance because the chopper couldn't fly in the weather.
Will had 100% blockage on his left cornory artery. They had to go in the though his wrist with a cath and put a stent in to open the blockage. Will was then placed on a heart pump for a day to help his heart pump because it was so weak, it had 40-45% damage. Will had to spend 6 days in the hospital because he wasn't stable, before finally being able to come home.
The doctor thinks Will is going to be off work for at least a month and maybe longer depending on rehab! Will has to travel to Kearney for lab work every couple days, at first, and also for his doctor appointments. His medication is over $600 a month! Due to high prices of health insurance Will does not currently have any insurance coverage because we choose to insurance our son instead.
Wyatt our son is now a year old. We still have to provide for him and with all expenses, we would appreciate anything you can do to help!
Thank You for any help you can provide us!!
