    Football Player, 13, Returns Home from Hospital After Suffering Heart Attack on Field

    Published on

    A Southern California young football player who had a heart attack and spent a month in the hospital is now back at home.

    13-year-old Cash Hennessy was freed last week, according to Los Angeles’ KABC-TV.

    According to KABC, he doesn’t remember the frightening incident.

    The last thing he remembers is the evening before the crucial football game in Rancho Cucamonga, San Bernardino County.

    Hennessy started having respiratory issues during the game on September 17 while watching from the sidelines, according to KABC-report TV’s on September 23.

    He passed out, while nearby medical personnel performed CPR.

    Eventually, the boy had to be transferred to Children’s Hospital Orange County, where medical professionals discovered a worrying development.

    Cash had a congenital cardiac defect from birth. According to KABC, the young person needed open heart surgery before being put on a ventilator.

    The boy’s parents insisted on remaining at the hospital with their son present.

    “We had kind of made a promise to him that we weren’t leaving until he did, and for us as parents, that’s really what got us through, was all the support and all the prayers and all the well wishes and the messages,” last week, Cash’s father Chad spoke with KABC.

    At present, Cash is healing at home.

    Klay Thompson of the Golden State Warriors made a video to show his support for the youngsters, according to a September article from KABC.

    “You have so much greatness ahead of you. Just keep your faith, keep your head high, keep saying your prayers and just lean on your family during this time,” the NBA star told Cash.

    More on this story via The Western Journal:

    Part of Cash’s treatment included extracorporeal membrane oxygenation, or ECMO, in which blood is removed from the patient, filtered for carbon dioxide, then returned to the body rich in oxygen. That gives damaged hearts and lungs a chance to rest and heal.

    The boy ultimately made a quicker recovery than expected, according to KABC.

    “When he started walking, after three days from being on an ECMO machine for close to eight days, there were nurses crying in the hallways,” said Brenda Hennessy, Cash’s mother. CONTINUE READING…
