Thank you, everyone!

I truly feel it was a blessing in disguise. It is much better to deal with it now while I have more time to correct things. I can definitely say it has had a positive impact on my life. That seems strange to say, but I think it is true.

Welcome Jonathon. Thank God you are still here. Your wake up call came early. DOn't hit the snooze bar.

Forewarned is forarmed. Thanks for this important message to everyone. No one is free of the risk. I was 56 when I had my first event which led to a quad bypass (CABG).

That's what I thought and it is the most common response when I tell people I had one. The thing is, there are people much younger than I was that have them too.

I was 35 and knew I had family history of heart conditions, but I felt fine and wasn't worried about my heart yet. October 1, 2010, I started feeling my symptoms but dismissed them as something else. On October 3, 2010, I finally told my wife and she let me make up my own mind to go to the hospital - although in the meantime she made arrangements for some help with our 3 month old daughter and was going to either force me to go or call an ambulance.

I was lucky. I was 99% blocked in my main coronary artery and had some smaller vessels with blockages from 35% - 70%. I only had to have 1 stent put in and there was no noticeable damage to my heart muscle.

I made a vow that I would do everything in my power to be there for my daughter's important life events and to also be there for my wife as long as possible.

So here I am continuing my journey back to a healthy me. I love to network with others, especially other heart attack survivors.

Hello, everyone! I'm Jonathan.
