Heart attack, not good

edited November 2020 in The Clubhouse
My chest and both arms had been hurting for 3 days but it would t ease up at times. Well it took a turn for the worse yesterday. I went to our local hospital and the doctor said it was a really bad one. They put me in a helicopter and flew me to Nashville. Getting good care but a bit concerned. They said my heart was only pumping at around 25.%. They moved me to ICU and put a catheter in my neck going to my l heart. They said this was a STEMI type and it was the widow maker.

I would appreciate any prayers or positive thoughts.

    What’s the catheter from your neck to your heart? A central line? A swan glanz?

    The one thing that worries me is you said 25% ejection fraction....
