He had a massive heart attack at age 36 and a small one around 47. They diagnosed him with coronary artery disease. It attacks his heart muscle. 2 years ago doctors told him he needed a heart defibrillator because he was a prime candidate for his heart to just stop. Tonight he called my brother and I over and told us his defibrillator shocked him this morning. His heart rate got up to 238 and he saw a bright flash of light then it felt like he was hit in the chest by a truck. The doctor told him if he did not have the dibibrillator he would have died. Nothing anyone could have done would have brought him back. I told him he had to live because he had at least one more grandchild to meet. My mom is already gone and I can't imagine my kids not knowing their papaw! I pray that what the doctors are doing will help. I'm so scared of losing my dad. I wouldn't know what to do without him here! Thanks for listening ladies! I just needed to get my feelings out before a exploded.
