Hello my name is Mike on Monday November 20th my life took a turn for the worse. I was on my way back to are shop from pumping a big concrete job over night. As I was driving I starting feeling weird and a little pain in my chest it went away I was like wow I need to have this looked at. Well it came back again this time was worse I knew that a ambulance company was up the road I was heading to get help well it got so bad I pulled over at a gas station. I knew I would not make it much further and I did not want to behind a 80.000lb sled and I black out. So I got out and laid in the grass I tried everything to ease the pain it let up enough to crawl in the passenger side of my truck and get my cell phone I got my phone and called 911. Well the pain and feeling was getting worse and worse. The 911 operator was trying to locate my phone for location she said we found you and help is coming. I started praying I told God please take care of my family don't let me die. Well I went unconscious the next thing I remember is tons of people over me I was in full cardiac arrest they shocked me and was doing CPR. I was rushed to Hanover Hospital where a team of doctors were waiting I went straight to cath lab. I had a 100 percent blockage of on my left side LAD other known as widow maker. Well they opened it and put a stint in. I came home yesterday my heart is at 30 percent of pumping capacity. I wear a life vest 24hrs a day. Not sure how long I will be off I ask Dr if I could work Monday he laughed and said your nuts I don't think you realize how bad it is. I just got insurance 3 days prior to this thanks to my boss for making me take it. I am are sole money maker my wife takes care of are twins and me now. I just want to make sure my bills get paid and my kids can have a good Christmas till I get healthy again and get back to work. Things were going great I got a new job making good money and bam I have a HEART ATTACK. I have so much to be thankful for the paramedics doctors the police department and all nurses. They told me people that have this kind of heart attack has a 1 percent chance of living. Well let's say God has better plans for me. Thanks for taking the time to read. MIKE.
