Default My Li'l Vacation

Well, folks, we had a little excitement in the household over the past three days. *On Thursday, I had a mild heart attack. *After an absolute bizarre ambulance ride to the hospital, lots of testing, a cardio-catheter procedure discovered blockage in two of my arteries (80% and 90%). *All is well and I am at home after having two stents implanted. *While waiting to get checked out today, my wife became aware of a numbing tingle in her left arm and chest pain. *She was promptly wheeled to the ER and was admitted where she is now in a room 4 doors from where I was. *So far they have ruled out heart/stroke but are running their tests.

We live such a mundane life.

Sorry to hear about your problems. Had the heart attack myself over 12 years ago, but have done well since. Do the rehab, watch the diet, take the meds, and take things easier. Hope your wife is ok, as well. Sometimes we forget how much stress our problems create for our loved ones, and the kinds of physical problems the stress creates.
Best wishes, and may you both be well soon.

Gary, sorry to hear that but glad you are doing better now and good news that they've ruled out the major things with your wife. Seems you will have to just spend more time relaxing and doing photography
