Debbie's Story

I had a heart attack in my early forties.  I was sitting up on the side of the bed, early on a Saturday morning, asking my ex-husband about his week.  As he was telling me, I began to experience this strange feeling in the middle of my back.  I really thought it was trapped gas.  I asked him to lay his hand in the middle of my back and to pray for me.  He touched it very quickly and removed his hand just as quickly.  I began to break out in a sweat (which sweating for me was very unusual) and my left hand began to take on a shape of its own.

The ambulance was called.  I arrived at the hospital and the ER attendees began to do their thing. All test that were performed on me showed absolutely nothing! The attending physician came in with all results and told me there was one more test that they could perform, which was a blood test that would check the enzyme levels in my blood.  That test indicated that something had happened with my heart.  They then did the dye test, which revealed I had two clogged arteries!! WOW!!

I have 2 stents as a result!!
