Life Heart Vest

This is one of the hardest things to do.. as most know ive struggled with heart issues! I have a severe case of congestive heart failure, more recently i suffered 3 strokes, another heart attack( previously 3 others). I have 4 stents and have had 2 of them replaced.  With this heart health issue ive suffered ive had more damage to my heart.  It now operates beating less then 20%.  I have been informed by my Cardio Dr that patients whom have  CHF often live with it for a long time, with restrictions and a change of eating habits. Ive since followed the advice and do my best to take care of myself.. unfortunately that hasnt helped me. I was admitted to the hospital again 2 nights ago.. fluid build up around my heart again. My main problem is my heart CAN NOT keep up with normal funtions and all with this last visit more damage  was done! I haveno insurance at this time and im doing my best to get some.  It was highly recommended by my DR that i live this moment on for intense healing with a lifevest. What this does along with my medication is shock my heart when its slowing down to much to speed up. Id have to wear it most times and im ok with that. I wanna feel better. Im scared and worried as it is for what may or could happen any moment. Sadly without insurance this vest cost just under 2,000 dollars and i justcan not come up with that alone. I have been in and out of work lately so much that i cant keep hours which is so nerve racking.. but my wonderful bosses have assured me that i willhave a job waiting for me when im phsically able to return. I know things and time is tuff all over and i really hate to ask! Im in a situation that my heart needs more assistance then im able to give it.. if any questions please feel free to ask! Thank you all in advance! Believe me. If im able to help anyone at anytime i do my best to help so i really am upset having To ask for help myself!”"32276906_1534718783244957_r.jpeg32276906_1534718805324516_r.jpeg
