Hi everyone, my husband had a cardiac arrest 5 weeks ago at home and I had to do cpr on him why my 15 year old daughter phoned the ambulance. He was rushed to hospital where he had a Angiogram and found he needs a quadruple heart bypass but he's not well enough for that yet. He went into icu for 2 weeks where he was in a coma on a ventilator but he improved enough to have a tracheostomy which he only had for two days and it was removed because he was able to breathe on his own. He then got moved to itu but wasn't there very long when he got moved to a cardiology ward still in a coma I might add this was two weeks ago now he woke from his coma the next day after the move and said his first word and since then he has come on great and is now speaking in sentences he remembers his dob his address and his kids names he still gets my name confused at times and his short term memory has been affected and his motor skills are not working yet but he's waiting to go to rehab which I'm hoping will help him greatly. Has anyone else experienced what I'm going through because sometimes I'm finding it very tough. Xx
