I'm in the hospital

Last night I went to bed at 11pm. At 12:15am I woke to the worst pains in my chest that I ever had. On a scale of 1 to 10 the pain was a 10. I woke my fiance and got him to call 911. The paramedics arrived in minutes. They brought me to the hospital where it was determined I had a mild heart attack. Luckily there is little damage to the heart. I have three blockages. One at 20%, another at 90% and a third are 95%. The way things are now it is life threatening. Using a stint and balloon is risky because of the location of the blockages. They are suggesting bypass surgery. I will only be able to have it done next week but I have to stay here in the mean time. I will be here a week after surgery and have a six week recovery. I called work and I am taking a three month sick leave. I am so scared. For those who pray please say prayers for me and for other positive thoughts would be appreciated.

I am so sorry to hear this! I pray for you to have an easy time and a fast recovery. It is scary but know they are really good at doing this now, Tony has 4 stints 3 in his heart so I know a little about what you are talking about.
