My Story

 



Wynn Kenyon had a heart attack on Wednesday evening around 9:00 p.m. while working out at Belhaven's gym.  He was found unconscious by a student.  CPR was begun immediately.  Paramedics were able to get a heart beat when they worked on him there.  His blood pressure was erratic, and doctors had to work again to stabilize him at the hospital.  When they were able to stabilize him, a heart cath was performed with the hopes of repairing the heart situation during this procedure.  Doctors were able to place a stent into the artery they believe caused this episode.

Over these next couple of days, the concern has been over his brain function.  No one knows exactly how long Wynn was without oxygen.  In order to let his body rest and heal, doctors put him into hypothermia for 24 hours.  As of 4:00 a.m. Friday morning, they began the process of warming his body up.  At this point, Wynn has not regained consciousness, but doctors are not concerned about that at this time.  He has passed through several critical stages of the process with his vital signs remaining strong.  Doctors now say due to some of the medications required to stabilize Wynn and get him through the dropping of his body temperature, they do not expect much response and consciousness until midday Saturday.
