Wake Up Call

Tuesday, May 11, 2010

On Oct 15 the man I have been married to for 33 years years went to his lab to have his blood tested...he came home the night before not feeling so well. He became pale and was sweating profusely so his co worker escorted him to the ER. Just as they attached the EKG he was gone...GONE! Out came the paddles and into the surgery room for an angio...

A week later my man came home with a renewed heart and feeling better than he has in years. We are both on a strict diet and soon we will begin the strenuous exercise.

This has been quite the wake up call! We are both grateful for the second chance we have been given to live better and enjoy the rest of our lives in good health!

    Wow, Tanibear, glad you're both getting the help you need before it's too late! As you know, I lost my husband recently, and it's hard. So glad you were warned and can work on your health and enjoy many many more years to come -- together.

    He is brilliant. That is exactly the best thing. If you are going to have a heart issue, do it at the hospital during the test. Best treatment possible. I am so very glad he survived this!

    Wow quite a wake up call. I am glad he is alright. Last year my husband had a tia and found he had a 70% blockage in his coratid artery. He had the surgery and he is a renewed person as well. That is when he started becoming a more healthy and active person. Now he is doing even better than I am. Thank God for second chances!! Good luck with your new beginings!

    Glad to know he's OK and you are both going to start working out, it will help. Take it slow at first, and work your way up.
