Unfortunately, in the middle of the night, one of the stents became blocked and he experienced another heart attack.
"I was actually a goner for a minute. They started doing CPR; revived me," he said.
Albaghdadi was called back in to place an additional stent. Boyer vaguely remembers his brother and 12-year-old daughter at the hospital that day.
"She was scared, obviously, terrified that something was happening to her dad," he said.
She still gets on him to make sure he is eating well and doing what he should.
After leaving the hospital, Boyer completed rehabilitation and various stress tests. A month after the attack, Albaghdadi put in a fifth stent, this time through his wrist.
"The technology is incredible nowadays. There's so much they can do," he said.
The whole ordeal took Boyer by surprise, even though, he admitted, it maybe should not have. His father suffered a heart attack in his late 40s and died while on a heart transplant list in his 50s.
"You can control your nicotine. You can control your exercise. But you can't control your genes. That's huge," he said.
He attributes his success to the Camanche ambulance crew and the staff at Mercy. He said that sometimes Clinton medical staff are forgotten or dismissed.
However, for him, they really were wonderful, he said: "Without them, I wouldn't be here."
Since his heart attack, Todd has not drastically changed his lifestyle. He has started to exercise and slimmed down, but he has not sworn off all soda or unhealthy food. He said the key for him is moderation.
He actually feels better than he has in years, joking that he feels more like a healthy 25-year-old than a healthy 45-year-old.
"Looking back, how I felt before I had the heart attack compared to how I feel now is absolutely incredible," he said. "I didn't have a lot of energy before that, not a lot of stamina. And now, I just feel revived."
