I Had A Heart Attack

Hi Everyone,

Please understand I did not run away and your heartfelt comments did not go unnoticed. After my last posting on Wednesday, Jan 16th I suffered an Heart Attack, went to the hospital and just returned home within the last hour.

I have a photo to show of the blockage before and after the surgery but blogger will not let me upload it, so it will have to wait for another day.

As it turns out the chest pains I wrote about last week were heart attacks. Over the past three weeks I may of had as many as five heart attacks. On Thursday I underwent Angioplasty and Stenting of the Left Anterior Decending Coronarty Artery. I will know in the next four weeks is the left side of my heart will recovery or if it will remain dead. I also need to have Angioplasty and Stenting on the Right Coronary Artery in four weeks. Until then it is bed rest and lots of reading.

If anyone is having chest pains CALL 911 RIGHT NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Do not do what I did and wait I was seconds away for dyeing.

Well, the "live to talk about it" line works well here - - especially apropos after I noticed your motto on the sidebar!

Here's to getting better. Take care.
