I just heard from our oldest daughter that her ex-fiance is in the hospital and needs some prayers , please...he blacked out and fell, injuring his head and face, due to heart issues. the doctors said he was heading into a stroke...he is only 21...I am a nervous wreck , he is so dear to us still, and they both talk daily to each other. They dated for 6 yrs., but felt they were rushing marriage, so they called off the engagemnet, but he is still the dearest thing in her life, and ours included.......Peace, krista

How horrible. I hope, with all of the power bestowed in me, that he'll be fine.

Good thoughts to him, you and your family. If it's any help, his extreme youth is very much in his favor.

Thank you all so much for your kindness. I just spoke to him at the hospital, he will spend another night there. The doctors told him he has atrial fibrilation, which usually only affects older people....If left untreated, it can cause blood clots to form in the heart or may travel to the brain and cause strokes..he is still so young, and he sounded so quiet,scared..The causes are heart disease, caffeine, stress, and anxiety.. I wonder if it was due to a broken heart.. :cry: (They talk daily, but she is dating another person).. Has anyone experience this in their family? I realize this for asperger topics, but I am really close to losing my composure, having a hard time keeping calm within......Thank you again for your messages.Peace...

Yes, and I was given beta blockers for it. Low blood pressure and a slow heart were the side effects. My 79 year old friend also has it and takes the same. I'd go for something more permanent at his age.

Here's a good site for info:

Hope he gets better soon.
