Has anyone out there been literally stabbed in the heart?

I am asking because on July 4, 1996 I was attacked by a stranger in New Orleans , he was trying to rape me and he said I've already killed 3 women and then he stabbed me. I died for a short time and had open heart surgery. I read a medical article that says only 1% of people stabbed in the heart live. I'm one of them.

Wow. You are SO lucky to have survived!! I have never been through such an experience (and I thank God for that) but I guess it must have been awful. At least did they catch the guy?

It's funny how many people told me how lucky i was. Let me tell you I felt anything but lucky. It was the worst pain I've ever experienced in my life it was like having an elephant stand on my chest for 6 months. Or give birth for 6 months. was very painful and still is my ribs over my heart did not heat right. No they haven't caught him that I know of the police only came by my house once to show me pictures then I never heard from them again.

I have never been stabbed but you are very lucky to have survived such an attack. I can relate to your pain as I had open heart myself and the bones never healed correctly. The pain is beyond what most people can endure. Good Luck friend, you are blessed to be alive!

You are right God has a plan for us, even if we don't know it yet!
