  1. My luckiest moment was when they found an arrhythmia by accident and did an emergency angiogram. They found a 90% occlusion in my LAD and put in stents saving my life. No chest pain, no heart attack, no warning.

  3. My luckiest moment was when I found out I was pregnant with my daughter. We already had two boys and I was a little bummed because I really only wanted two kids and I was hoping one would be a girl. I was happy with my boys and decided to get an IUD since I was still very young but decided two kids were plenty for us. Two days after the IUD, I started getting a horrible stomach pain that worsened with each hour. Come to find out, the IUD ripped through my uterus and was basically floating through my abdomen and poking the crap out of me. It felt like I was being stabbed from the inside. I had emergency surgery. Two months later, surprise! I found out I was pregnant with my daughter! I was a little freaked at first, considering my middle son was still a baby, but extremely lucky. If my IUD stayed in place, we never would have had more kids and I wouldn’t have my beautiful daughter!

  4. Luckiest moment was winning a 10 day trip to Chile and Patagonia.
    Thanks for the contest.
