Prayers needed for my Dad, had a heart attack outside gate 9

[131]
Posted: Oct 5, 2015 3:49 PM
 

As we were going into the stadium just before the game, my dad grabbed my shoulder and said "Shane, Oh no" then collapsed into my arms. I eased him to the ground and watched as he went into cardiac arrest in my arms. I got up and began yelling for help and two people were there within seconds giving him CPR and working with him until the ems got there. the ems was there in literally seconds and they moved us into the ambulance so the buses could come around the stadium. Last time I looked out there were what seemed like a hundred or more Clemson and ND fans in a prayer circle praying.
He was in full cardiac arrest for 10 minutes until they brought him back, it took three shocks from the paddles to bring him back. He is in Greenville Memorial now in CCU but he is stable. We are waiting for the doctors to do a heart cath this afternoon and if they find blockage they will put a stint in while they are in there.
Tiger Nation thank you all for your prayers outside Saturday night and ask for the prayers to keep coming. He has had several open heart surgeries back around 2001, so please pray they can find what was wrong and fix it. First thing he asked when he woke up was "Did we win??" God is good people, and prayer can make miracles happen, I got to see one Saturday night!

Father God, please wrap your arms around this man's father and his family. Comfort them and ease their fears. Be with the surgeons and medical professionals as they preform their procedures. Envelope them all with your grace and carry them through this stressful time. It's in your precious and holy name, amen. - Kevin


yep...best to your Dad......and btw....

They sure did, right in front of me. God bless everyone involved!


The first aid station is literally feet from Gate 9

Right between sections S and T, so they were in a great position to respond immediately. I'm happy to hear the OP's father survived and is in good hands now. Prayers being sent that he recovers.

You and yours have my prayers. As a heart patient with nine stents I certainly hope your Dad received the right care to determine what caused his initial attack. My thanks to the Lord and all those who immediately came to provide aid.

God is good.

Prayers for your dad, glad he is still with us and will be back in the valley some day. I'm 63 and drive 300 miles round trip to the games, as I sat in traffic Sunday morning with a 150 mile trip before me, the thought went through my mind of how much longer I would be able to do this. I got home at 3:40, bone tired and happy. I'll be like your dad and go as long as I can.

I thought about staying home Saturday morning and thought to myself, in a few years I might not be able to go, loaded up the truck and headed west, so glad I did. Sorry I made your post about me, however, it hit home to me.

No problem at all bud, these things can hit close to home. Makes you think about life and how easy it can be taken from you.


'Did we win?' That's awesome

Prayer sent up . I liked 3 things about your story.
First, your Dad is still with you.
Second, opposing fans coming together for a prayer circle.
Third, wanting to know if we won.
God Bless your family. God >


Wishing you the best at this tough time!

Just an update, the doctors went in to do the heart cath and found blockage in an artery and was able to put a stint in it. Thanks for the prayers, he was really not wanting to go through another open heart surgery! Thanks to each and everyone that helped or prayed for him!
