Earlier this evening, I heard from Lynn Gagnon, Tim Gagnon's wife, that Tim suffered a life-threatening heart attack on Friday morning (June 7) and was rushed to the hospital.

After emergency surgery, Tim's doctors were thankfully able to stabilize his condition and he is now in the intensive care unit (ICU) recuperating, where he will remain for at least the next few days.

As some may have read in the previous thread that he started late last month, Tim was recovering from an earlier heart condition when he suffered the heart attack today.

Lynn, who gave her permission to share Tim's status with the collectSPACE community, shared that Tim seems to be doing "much better" and that his doctors said "he was very lucky."

I've conveyed to her that my and the entire collectSPACE community's thoughts and well wishes are with Tim, her and their family, but any messages posted here will be shared as well.

Lynn said she will share updates when possible, which I will in turn post here.

Tim just posted a note on Facebook:
This is Tim. This will be short but I wanted to thank everyone for the outpouring of love and support for my family.

Yesterday, when I arrived at the hospital — I would have died if not for the excellent care provided by the Titusville FD, EMT, the Parrish ER team, the Cath Lab team and the wonderful folks in the ICU. I coded on the table in the Cath Lab and had to be shocked four times. Getting hit square in the face is a very humbling event. The necessary changes have already begun. Thank you all.

Tim and Lynn, You are in my prayers. I know all to well what you are going through Tim. And I know it's extremely hard on Lynn and your family. In 2005 I had a heart attack that my Cardiologists still say that I shouldn't be alive today. I had a quintuple bypass the next year. The night before the bypass the surgoen came in to tell me he didn't think I was going to survive the surgery. He got my attention real fast!! I prayed and prayed that I have to live because I had a sick son who needs me. Then I started Cardio Rehab. Tim I hope they offer you Cardio Rehab. The nurses are Cardiac nurses and they'll really get you moving while watching your heart function. Also I KNOW PRAYERS SURE DO HELP. Tim and Lynn, you are in my prayers every day and night. You are so good to so many people and we all will keep you in our prayers from around the world!! God Bless you and get well soon!!!
