On August 1, 2013 I suffered a major heart attack.  I was in a rural area on a job site when I began to develop symptoms.  I was fortunate to have the assistance of the EMS community to get to a local hospital to get care, Life-Flight transported me to a Bangor hospital where I underwent angioplasty.  One stent was placed in my Left Anterior Descending Artery and I was discharged four days later.  

I was very fortunate to have the ambulance arrive before I went into cardiac arrest and died.  The ambulance crew was unsuccessful in bringing me back, but maintained CPR until arrival at the hospital where I was resuscitated. I was gone for over 15 minutes.  So, back from the dead and a great prognosis for a full life yet to come.  It was a very close call however.  

Back from the hospital and recovering
Since being back I have not pursued film astrophotography, but have been dabbling in digital work as it is less demanding.  I do have plans for continuing my analog work and will keep you all updated on future projects.
