Hugs and prayers to you Lisa. I know what you are going through. My ex-husband had his first heart attack at age 38. He was a heavy smoker and ate extremely fatty foods. He had two more over the last few years of our marriage. He was noncompliant with his meds. He thought that his heart had miraculously healed itself. If your husband does EVERYTHING the doctors tell him to, diet, exercise, medications etc. his chances of getting better are greatly increased. Let him know you are there. Tell him how much you love and need him. All you can do is give him support. Just be there, try and stay strong for him. My prayers are with you.
"God grant me the serenity to accept the things I can not change, the courage to change the things I can and the wisdom to know the difference."
