Then in the summer of 2007, on Father's Day, my husband had a heart attack. We didn't know what was happening at the time it occurred. He had a stent put in a 100% blockage and another 2 weeks later in a 75% blocked artery. He had gained quite a bit of weight, and suffered a good bit of stress due to job loss. At the time, we were thankful that he sustained no serious heart damage.
Fast forward to the summer of 2009 and he developed a heart irregularity that required a cardiac ablation, which put it back in proper rhythm, until the winter of 2010 when he had a bad case of the flu, and yes, he had a flu shot, but got the flu anyway. The battle went on because he was a diabetic, and needed to keep his blood sugars and weight under control, and keep up with exercise.
On November 2 of 2015, my husband once again had a heart attack, and a stent in time to save his life, according to the doctor. He also had another cardiac ablation right after Christmas to put his heart back in rhythm, and all was well for 2-3 years.
Sadly, at this update in October of 2018, I must share that my precious husband passed in his sleep in August of 2017. It has taken me all of this time to be ready to update these pages with this information, but I did share a bit at this post.
