I want to tell you why he does this. Fifteen years ago...one morning we were going to go play golf, Ted was a bit irritable. He was sweating. We had just gone by the bank that day too. He said he wanted to go back home and lie down for a bit since we had some time. I asked , "just how do you feel?" He said he felt a bit nauseous. I said , "Ted, your are sweating, irritable and now feel sick...those are signs of a heart attack." He said, " let me lie down for about 5 minutes."..I said then here take these aspirins, and I gave him two aspirin. He was lying down for two minute and jumped up and said my arm hurts...so I drive him to the hospital myself and take him in ER and tell them he's having a heart attack.
He gets hooked up and they give him clot busters...I told them of the aspirins. They put him in an ambulance and he is on his way to the heart clinic in the next town. The doctor there does a catheterization . Ted had a 98 % blockage and two tinier ones. They asked us what we wanted to do...do a stent, or take some meds , or just go home and see if it happens again. Ted said , "Let's do the stent." That is what happened 15 years ago....Ted was only 48 then.
The doctor who did the stent is Ted's heart doctor. He called it a heart episode...not an attack ...because he got the clot busters and there was no damage to his heart. I am asking all of you to know the signs of a heart attack. It's important.
Snowing here today. :( Be safe. XO
