Miracle of the Heart

On June 10, 2016, while running on a treadmill, I collapsed due to cardiac arrest. Thankfully, I was in the safe place of Planet Fitness and the staff immediately began CPR which is a miracle in itself because I could have been at home, work or driving which would have made my survivability much lower. It turns out that there was an ambulance right across the street. Apparently, I had three cardiac arrests and 13 minutes of heart stoppage. Of course, that's just what I've been told because God erased my memory of that traumatic event. Unfortunately, the doctor was unable to fix my heart when I got to the hospital and I had to wait three months for another attempt at getting fixed. I feel these three months have been a test of my faith, as I was given multiple restrictions and my independence was taken from me. I'll admit I have faultered but am now getting so close to getting fixed, that I am just thankful to be alive. Thank you, God!—Art Boyer
