Personal Experience

I am a CA survivor!

I was de-fibbed at the side of the road after a car crash by EMT's and air-lifted to a major hospital about 40 miles from the accident scene.

Eight months later at age 68 I have, Thanks be to God, fully recovered. After three months I returned to my job wherein I work about 55 hours a week I have a pacemaker/defib device installed in my chest but, to date, there have been zero recorded events of any kind. In spite of the open heart surgery and implant scars, my wife, family, co-workers and church brethren all agree that I look and perform as if nothing ever happened.

I feel great and enjoy being an inspiration, especially to those who are living with heath issues I have grown spiritually and believe I am calmer and more even-tempered than ever before.

Anecdotally, as a result of the hypothermia treatment, I have complete amnesia beginning about a week before the CA until the moment I awoke in the hospital four days later. However, zero cognitive and memory issues from that moment on.
