#HowardStrong

When the members of Teton Crossfit set up the gofundme, we knew that we didn't need it.
We have very good health insurance.....thank goodness!

Anyway, I told Tyler...the one that set up the account....to buy an AED with the money.

Many cardiac arrests occur at gyms.

So we wanted Teton Crossfit to have their very own AED.

With a sudden cardiac arrest the live saving measures are..

Early recognition
Early and effective CPR
And
Early defibrillation.

Those things saved Howie's life.

So in the end they did purchase an AED for Teton Crossfit.

But I loved the people that were taking pictures of them in their #HowardStrong t-shirts.
It made my day!
We love you.

The people from Howard's work, this was taken about a month after his cardiac arrest.

Nate and Sara
And then these people.....my heroes.
The ones that literally saved his life.
They performed CPR while they waited for the ambulance to arrive.
When the ambulance got there they defibrillated his heart. 


I will be grateful for you forever.
