Listen to your body talk.
If you don't know my story, I had a heart attack in December of 2012. Pretty serious and was actually shocked twice in the ER before getting a single stent put in my heart. Everything has been good since then.
When your body is trying to tell you something and you just ignore it, bad things usually happen. Last Monday 4/14/22 I woke up in the middle of the night with a soaking wet t-shirt. Too many blankets? My wife was sleeping too close? Not sure. Tuesday I went to an inspection and had a fevery face. At this point I think I have Covid. Took a Covid test and it was negative. Went to southern Illinois for the weekend to attend a funeral for my wife's brother in Missouri. Spent the night at our son's house. Had sweats again on Friday night. Then on Saturday morning I blacked out in the hallway of his laundry room. Paramedics came to his house and they checked a bunch of blood and heart things and everything checked out fine. Knew at that point I needed to get to my heart doctor asap because something is really wrong.
Appointment was on Tuesday and he said get to the hospital. Don't think like most guys that you can just handle it and spend a few days thinking about going to the hospital. That's when you become a statistic and your family gets to set up your funeral. I checked in to the local hospital and they scheduled an angioplasty for 7:30 AM on Wednesday. They found a different artery on the other side of my heart with major blockage. So today I have 2 stents in my heart. I have set up a series of rehab sessions. Nine years between heart issues is pretty good but it might have been a whole lot worse if I hadn't listened to my body.
