Alcohol Abuse, a Widow Maker, Open-Heart Surgery and the Virgin Mary
Widow maker heart attack June 11, 2017. That is me on the ventilator post heart attack. You never know. This occurred in a split second. There were no warnings and no pain.
Encounters with the Virgin Mary
I have been having encounters with the Virgin Mary since 2012 when after reading a book titled Our Lady of Kibeho, I started praying the Holy Rosary out of my own accord.
A week later, an unexpected visitor came and surrounded me with a heavy, heavy smell of Roses as I was preparing for work. Unaware at the time of who the visitor was, this was the beginning of an extraordinary journey that I aptly call “The Experience of a Lifetime”, because that is what it truly is.
I was a heavy beer drinker for almost 30 years, and it got to the point where I could not quit, although I always thought that I could.
I would try and to the best of my abilities, but I could not break the habit. I could not even make it through a single day as when I set aside a day to start to break the habit; the pressure would just keep growing and growing until I caved.
I was trapped.
When I look back now, I see a miserable existence, and at the time, I believed that I was living on top of the world.
Widow Maker Heart Attack
I am a survivor of a widow maker heart attack that occurred in 2017 on a golf course near my home. There was no warning and no pain; you just never know.
The doctor on call at the time, who is currently my cardiologist, said to me later when I came to, that my Left Anterior Descending (LAD) artery was 98 percent closed off, giving me a 2 percent chance of survival, hence, the name for this website.
Below are pictures of my LAD before and after the balloon was applied.
I had to have open-heart surgery as a result of that heart attack. The open-heart surgery was a single bypass procedure (I know a single bypass is less than some people have, but it was enough for me). An artery found behind the heart was used, so I was fortunate because otherwise, the surgeon would have had to use a vein (an artery can expand sideways, but a vein cannot).
I have recovered completely.
My Greatest Blessing, the Virgin Mary
My saving grace has been the Virgin Mary, to whom this site is dedicated. I would not be here today if it were not for her love and guidance, as you will find out if you read The Experience of a Lifetime.
I was protestant up until 2019, and I actually consecrated myself to her earlier in that year, so religious denomination meant nothing to her in my opinion. She has been there from the very beginning in 2012.
I want to thank you in advance for coming to this site and reading about my experiences. They are all authentic and even though some of this may sound far-fetched, it isn’t; it is all the truth. Some of the things that happened to me, I still cannot believe myself, and at the time, I thought I was going insane.
It is very important to me that you read these encounters I have had because I want you to know what it is like to have a walk like this with the Holy Mother. I hope that everyone who comes here will leave knowing more about Jesus’ mother than they have ever realized was true.
For those of you who know her, this could be a real treat for you; for those who don’t, this could be the start of something great as it has been for me.
