Had a cardiac arrest with bilateral pulmonary embolism five weeks ago, almost died.  God gave me a second chance.  We are having trouble with hos[ital biil and expenses.  We could really use the help.

Started having stomach pain about six months ago.  Found out in January I had gall stones.  Started having trouble breathing, thought it was my gallbladder.  Went to have a routine gallbladder surgery 4/14/14.  After surgery I couldn't get my oxygen leevel up.  Spent the night in hospital.  Was up walking next day and fell down on the floor.  Fiinally they decided to release me.  My wife had gone down to get the car and I got dressed.  I felt funny so I went to sit down.  Next I knew I woke up and there was people working on me.  I had blood clots that traveled to my lungs and heart causing me to me to have cardiac arrest.  Almost had to have open heart surgery but at last minute the doctors got my stats going.  I had bilateral pulmonary embolism along with my cardiac arrest.  Spent 13 days at Parkview hospital In Fort Wayne 11 of those days I was in the STICU, 6 of those days I was on a vent.  On the road to recovery now, doing a lot better now.  I'm coumidan now and may be on it rest of my life.

 My wife works part time and I;m geting sick pay which is half of what I normally make.  I am behind on some bills and doctors bills are coming in.  Suppose to back to work 6/2/14 but right don't know if I will go back then..
