I said , "honey, I think you are showing signs of a heart attack." He said he wanted to go home and rest a bit, before we golfed. When we got home, from the bank, that's where we were when I noticed these things, I gave him two aspirins. Five minutes later he was saying his arm was hurting...so I drove him across town to the hospital.
Took him in the E.R. and said he was having a heart attack. They did an EKG and gave him clot busters. He was taken by ambulance to another hospital , for a heart catheterization. The Dr. found a 95 % blockage, and a couple of really small ones.
Ted had a stent put in, right then and there. He's been on heart meds since. Changed his eating habits. This is a man that had never been in the hospital since his birth. Was active and looked perfectly healthy. He did not have a heart attack because of the clot busters. But he goes to the heart doctor every year for tests.
The sun is coming up and it looks like it could be pretty today. It is also going to be cold. Stay warm. XO
