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.
