My mother and sister were with my dad when he had a heart attack. It happened at home. It took the ambulance 8-10 minutes to arrive. My mom and sister panicked and didnât give him CPR. No one is exactly sure how long he went without oxygen. My mom said the paramedics worked on him at the house for about 20-30 minutes. They were able to revive him. Now he's been in the hospital for exactly 2 weeks today.
He's been asleep ever since the heart attack and hasn't woken up yet. His EEG came back poor, which is a brain activity test. But some doctors donât rely on that procedure. Sometimes he'll open his eyes, and it sometimes seems he realizes someone is trying to talk to him. Everyone in the family takes turns talking to him when they visit.
We put on his favorite shows at night. All his vital signs are stable and he still has a blocked artery to his heart. The doctors wonât perform surgery on the artery till he wakes up. The person that performed the EEG said he can hear us and reacts to pain and sounds. Can someone relate to this situation or know someone who has and what was the outcome. Please reply. Thank You and God Bless.
Thank You very much, He has never had heart problems. He never complained or said anything, he went to check up regularly. He also took medicine for high blood pressure and cholesterol. But, my mother said he hadn't had a stress test in several years.
Im a little angry because i feel that my father had a false sense of secruity taking the pills for the HBP and Cholesterol, I believe that he thought he was o'k by going to his routine check ups and taking his pills. He didn't have a completely healthy diet but he did eat alot of fish and chicken. he also was active, he was always keeping up with the yard and building things for the house.
I hope the lord decides to leave him with us a little longer.
well my father is out of the ICU and out of the hospital thank god
he is a lawer but he cant work much now due to his heart and shortness of breath...so thats hard on him
he has lung cancer and cancer of the kidneys as well as COPD and his arteries to his heart are clogged pretty badly
they thought the cancer had spreadt to the colon but it hasnt yet
we are hopeing he can get better
he ate very unhealthy too. and drank alot of coffee. hes also a smoker which didnt help at all
i know it was hard on me when my friend and mom called to tell me he was at the hospital. he had a heart attck at a store and the ambulance picked him up.
im pregnant and so the stress was horrible. i became depressed and cried alot while he was in the hospital
thank god he was only in ICU for a few days and he was in the hospital for a week and a half then he got out. its hard to go throught that
i defiantely will keep your dad in my thoughts and he will pull through this
if you EVER need anything then please let me know
im on here all day every day and im here if you ever need to talk
