Long story short, I was treated and transported to a different hospital where I spent the next several days. As I was being wheeled out of the lab, many of my employees were there waiting. I yelled, "Told you so!" They checked my baby in utero and my son was fine! Three months after I had my baby I had the cath. I had a complete blockage, too late to stent and another artery blocked at 60%. I have CAD. Genetics unknown because I was adopted. I had a history of smoking and overall a diet high in fat (although I wasn't fat). I think I survived to bring my precious son into the world. Since the heart attack, I take Bayer Aspirin along with a statin and a beta blocker and coQ10. I watch my diet and I walk every day! I lost my job for exceeding the 12 weeks of FMLA but reducing that stress has probably helped too. Now I am still scared every day and always thinking another heart attack is looming, but I think of my son and my husband and hope for the best!"
