My Husband Emotional and Psychological effects from his cardiac arrest

My husband suffered a sudden cardiac arrest on March 12, 2019 after his doctor sent him to the pharmacy without even doing a EKG. He collapsed and faceplanted as he walked into the Pharmacy. Luckily, the fire station was right next to the pharmacy and the pharmacist was there pretty quickly. En route they did shock my husband twice to get his heart started. After a Face and Head CT scan showed no brain hemmorrage they were able to put three stents in the right side of his heart. They did give him hypothermia treatment as well after the surgery. He remained in a coma with five fractures in his face for 11 days and a total of 14 days in the ICU and step down before two weeks at a Rehabilitation hospital. He was given a life vest for three months of monitoring which was removed June 28th, 2019. Per his cardiologist, no defibrillator needs to be put in at this time.
