In December 2012, I went into Congestive Heart Failure at 34 yrs old. I progressively was getting worse until the day my husband Jim rushed me to the E.R. The doctor on duty ordered a x-ray to rule out any problems with my lungs, Although what they did find they did Not expect since I was only 34. They found 12 pounds of liquid surrounding my heart since the left side of my heart was enlarged. They made sure I was stable and the next day they sent me to St. Helena, Ca. where they did a angiogram and seen that all of my arteries were blocked and my E.F.(ejection fraction) was at 13%, the day after the angiogram they did a 6 way bi-pass, My husband states that my surgery took all day until 7 pm. The specialists were unable to get my heart to start, so they told my husband they would try for a hour until they would let me go. By about 7:45 pm they came out to tell Jim that they were able to get my heart started. Once I was stabilized I was on a balloon pump, and I was transferred to CPMC in S.F. to recover.
