Guard Your Heart Wall Art

Easter Weekend, On Good Friday, I walked into the ER with Chest Pains.
I am only 37 years old so, nothing could have prepared me for what happened next…

Based on the tests, The Doctor said I had a heart attack within the last 48-72 hours.
Wait, What?!?!
So, I had heart attack, didn’t know it and lived through it for almost 3 days?!?
I was in complete shock.

Now, don’t get me wrong, I am not the healthiest person alive. I have untreated high blood pressure and cholesterol, I am overweight for my age and height. I also don’t eat right every day.

Even so, I was running/walking miles daily, watching my carbs and sugars and working on myself in general.
It just wasn’t enough.

The Doctor did a cardio cath to see what was going on and he wanted to stent.
But, the damage was done.
The blockages were too bad 95% in one artery and 75% in another. The places in my arteries I had the blockages were too difficult to stent.

The Doctor reccomended I have open heart surgery to save my life.

As the Doctor explained everything to us, I felt numb. I just couldn’t believe this was happening.
Even today I am still trying to wrap my head around it.

I had triple bypass open heart surgery and am in recovery. I am thankful to be alive and I am doing my best to take care of myself and be the healthiest me possible.

I am reminded of Proverbs 4:32 NIV
“Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it.”

This verse is true physically, emotionally and spiritually.
