thank you all for the support. we moved with in a month after his heart attack and are settled in finally. ended up chucking all the unhealthy food and now we shop together so it's easier with both of us looking what's going into the cart which now is lots of fruits, veggies and fish. right now he is on 5 different meds but his doctors said that will change if he keeps up this new lifestyle. so far he has lost 8 pounds and i've lost 14. been doing a lot of walking and not as much sitting around. also found out that he has sleep apnea so we're both sleeping much better now that he has the mask and machine to help him breath. life is good.

so sorry that you are dealing with this, but like you said, eating like that is where it got him. Please take care of yourself so that you can take care of him. His diet is going to have to change drastically now anyway, join him. I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers and him as well. good luck.

Food nourishes my body, not my mind. So, why do I keep eating when I get overly emotional?

This is a lesson for you and all of us. Take care of ourselves. When you're nervous you will eat more. But change it to maybe raw veggies.

The best thing for you and him is to journal everything you eat and excercise as per instructions from his doctor. He will be asked to take a rehab class, if you can sit in on the cooking part and learn about what he and you should eat. Insist that you sit in on it because you are the food provider and need to know what is good for him and not. My husband has had three surgeries on his heart and is on commudin. So there are some restrictions on vegtables and no grapefruit juice, but your nutricianist will fill you in. If the hospital or doctor didn't give you a Heart Healthy cookbook, call the American Heart Association and get one for starters. Once you are familiar with his and your diet you can expand your cooking. Plan on going on walks with your df. This attack may have been Gods way of touching both of you toward a healthy lifestyle. One heart attack isn't the end of life for him, its only the beginning of a new lifestyle. Welcome to the group, keep us posted on his progress.

He should recover but healthy eating habits along with an exercise program will go a long way to preventing another one.

My husband spent several days in the hospital last year around this time becuase they thought he had a heart attack. It turned out not to be one, but the heart cath showed serious blockages and I took it as a warning. I started trying to keep healthier food around, and started cooking healthier in an effort to support him. It didn't work, unfortunately, and I still have to treat him like 5 year old every night and give him his medicine for his blood pressure and cholesterol (he won't remember to do it himself). It's very frustrating, but all you can do is try to set a good example and be supportive. Men are incredibly thickheaded and stubborn creatures, but hopefully this will get his attention and make him straighten up. I will be praying for you.

Be kinder than necessary. Everyone is fighting some kind of battle.

Hopefully he will follow you with healthier eating.......it has to be his choice....he is the one who holds the fork! I pray he chooses health and life! Hopefully the hospital has a rehab program that he can sign up for with health, nutrtional classes and exercise classes as well. It will be hard, but with guidance and commitment, he can do it!!!!

My prayers are with you two. The one thing that you have to do is take all the stuff in your home that is not good for either of you put it in the garbage.
Better in the garbage than in your systems. I know. I have heart problems, and thought that if I was good for a few months that would be fine.. Wrong not long after my first heart attack I had another one. I have really tried to learn not to keep horrible snacks and stuff in the house. Keep fruit, and good snacks around. If he is going to be on a blood thinner remember he has to watch if he eats green veggies because it thickens the blood. Not good.. No green tea either.. I will keep you in my prayers and keep me posted. Be strong.. He will need you for some moral support.. Hugs, Carol

Remember to say I LOVE YOU. Just three words that mean so much.

Be an inspiration to yourself and others daily.

Think positive.

Commit.....to each other......he is going to have to change. If you love each other...you can support one another. Start right now....throw out the crap in the house. From this point forward.....do lots of research on the best choices for a healthy heart diet....and buy them. You can do it...we can help...one day at a time.

Hugs. It is a really hard time and eating is easier than doing the right thing. You'll make it though. Keep putting one "right" foot in front of the other, making one right choice after another.

my fiancee had a heart attack last saturday. i'm home, supposed to be getting the house ready for him, but what i really want to be doing is eating ice cream, chips, chocolate and drinking soda. why can't i realize that eating like that and not working out is one of the reasons that put him where he is and that we both need to be changing? when i'm with him and see the tubes and machines it doesn't seem like that hard of a decision but when i get home it all changes. i'm terrified of what could happen if he has another heart attack and i know i don't want one.
