a gift from the heart.....

On our 42nd anniversary my prince gave me a gift that made my heart stop....
His heart stopped.
He is in the hospital and his strong heart seems to be doing well, even with this damage and one artery completed shut off.
After the ambulance ride to the hospital and no sleep for 24 hours, I returned home to stabilize myself.....doing the dishes, making the bed, going on my computer....but with this quiet familiar routine, my emotions rise...
Thank god his heart has spoken loudly of it's needs.....the greatest gift he could have given me.
He will be fine  He will be fine  He will be fine

Having gone through that experience, I know how scary it is to have a loved one have such an attack.

My warmest thoughts and best wishes for a speedy recovery - to both of you!

Yes, Marilyn, he will be fine. Take good care of yourself now while Gary has his team taking care of him. My heart is with you.
Warmest hugs,

Blessings to you both. I will pray for your husbands speedy recovery while I am praying for my Bobbie. I loved the comment you made at the beginning of this post. You both will laugh about it at a later date. His heart stopped for you, what a sweet sentiment. Now tell him not make a habit of it. Again, blessings to you both.

He WILL be fine because you have a lot of people saying prayers and wishing good thoughts. I know how difficult this is, I've been through it. You shall overcome and so will your Prince, you'll see. Love and good wishes,

Yes...as others have said your Prince WILL BE FINE!! I will keep you and your husband in my thoughts and prayers. Please take care of yourself too my dear! I pray your husband has a speedy recovery. Get some rest. I know this is tough becuase my Grandfather is in his 80's and he has had triple bypass heart surgery years ago...(I think that is what they call it) and he had a heart attack a few months back. When I found out I wanted to drop everything I was doing to go see him and spend time with him and share with him how much I really do love him! Unfortunately due to work I could not make the long trip to see him but THANKFULLY he is doing fine now! My prayers are with you and your husband.

Much Love,

Catherine

In my thoughts I would be by your side and console you.
