Spouse of Survivor

I am finding myself reaching out in hopes that there are others out there that may have some words of advice for me. I feel very guilty writing this as I am not the victim of the Sudden Cardiac event rather I am the one that applied the CPR and that kept my husband alive. My story started in May of 2016 at 12:30 am. I woke to what I thought was my husband snoring and tried to wake him to roll on his side. I in a short time frame realized that something was wrong. I could not wake him and he had stopped breathing. I to this day do not know how I jumped into action but I did without hesitation. I am sure it was the higher up that was with me leading me through what needed to be done. The 911 dispatcher walked me through getting him on the floor and starting the CPR. Long story short, he did survive the event with having 6 additional events over a 6 week time frame in the ICU. I am happy to say he is alive and his mind is doing great.
