A 13-year-old who suffered a heart attack last month during a football game is now back at home.
Cash Hennessy suffered a heart attack on Sept. 17th during a football game in California for his San Dimas team. He had been in the hospital ever since. However, he was seen leaving the Children’s Hospital of Orange County on Tuesday.
“It feels great. I’m so happy to be home,” Hennessy said via ABC7.
Cash added his only memory is the night before the medical emergency.
Doctors told his parents that their son was born with a congenital heart condition they had no clue about. He’s been through open heart surgery and was placed on a ventilator.
“I still felt kind of loopy from the anesthesia when they showed me them, so I was just more shocked than anything, and now I’m just kind of grateful,” Cash said.
Chad Hennessy, Cash’s father, said that the cardiologists were surprised that he was even allowed to go home at this point of his recovery.
“Every time he doubted Cash, Cash proved him wrong, and his recovery was so fast. He was just amazed,” Chad Hennessy said.
“Overall, I just feel so much better being home, like, mentally and physically, I just feel great,” Cash Hennessy added.
