I first wish to thank everyone who has offered prayers and kind words during a very trying time. Late Monday night 3/20 or early Tuesday 3/21 after not feeling so hot for a few days I woke up with horrible pain in my chest and it felt like someone had parked a 1968 Buick on my chest that was so bad it woke me up. I was also sweating bullets and having trouble breathing. I woke my wife up ot of a sound sleep to tell her to get me my nitro pill and to call 911 and she started panicking. She gets horrible panic attacks and seeing her like that made it so much worse. The EMT's showed up after I had taken a second nitro and they confirmed I was having a big heart attack. They rushed me to the ER about 1.5 miles away and within a hour after several doses of Morphine I was in surgery and having angioplasty and a stent put in my fully 100% blocked right Coronary Artery. However this couldn't have come at a worse time as I had changed jobs 45 days prior and have no health coverage or earned time off. It looks so far that I may qualify for supplemental coverage from the State of Wa. under a new law but I still have to figure out how to cover our bills on much less income this month. I don't really need the added stress but hey this is the facts. I honest believe that it was your prayers, my friends and families prayers and all the positive energy sent my way that helped me survive something many don't get to because they never wake up or are too far from a quality hospital. They had defib pads on me before they left my bedroom because they thought I might not make the trip of 1.5 miles without my heart stopping. I am making progress and even played a little this weekend after being sent home to recover. I was allowed to return to my new job today and it was a little tough but got bills to pay. Thanks Again So Very Much to everyone for helping me and making me smile with those amazing words of encouragement. They meant so much to me and my wife. If anything changes I will send @loaderXI a message but lets hope the new meds and no more cigarettes will help a old man get a few more miles out of this ride. >XI< is the biggest most amazing Family anyone could ever be part of and please remember that from someone who has been around here a long long time and never plans to leave

I'm very glad that you are back and will be ok. 

My dad had an emergency stent put in and then was sent to a specialist for bypass surgery years ago and his ticker has been doing good.

Take it really easy for atleast a few weeks. If you start feeling tired you have overworked yourself. Keep yourself well hydrated. Stay away from the beer and caffeine because they do cause dehydration and caffeine is not good for your ticker. 1 cup of coffee in the morning is ok but I would not drink more than that. You need a beverage that has plenty of electrolytes. Gatorade and other sports type drinks that have electrolytes taste like ass but they will keep you hydrated. 

 

Back when I was doing road work for the state and when I was working for the State Park they used to hand out Salt Tablets because eating Salt kept you from dehydrating nearly as fast. Then the doctors say that taking to much salt is very bad for your health? lol Gatorade only came in Lemon Lime and Orange flavors until around 1995. They were disgustingly bitter and about the only place you could buy it was at a Fitness Center. 

I absolutely hate something that tastes like that nasty Pink Lemonade that my grandma used to make for me when I would stay over at her place. She did not put nearly enough sugar it in.  That crap was so bitter that you I wanted to run back outside and shove the garden hose in my mouth. I didn't want to tell her how absolutely horrible it was, because that is just something that you did not do. lol  And I didn't want to hurt her feelings by telling her how HORRIBLE that crap was.

You had a warning sent to you , you have a second chance of making life better and cheers every day extra you were given.

Wow ! that's a lot to go through and on top of that only 45 days into your new job floating between insurance...timing like that is my middle name, so I know how shit can go sideways real quick but it sounds like your going to attack this situation all out and with help and some luck it will just be a distant memory as you move forward and I'm sending good vibes your way brother as well.You were just given a whole new lease on life and I know your whole perspective on life has changed and for the better I'm sure.....and yes....no more effing cigarettes bro. and a better diet and exercise.There is a guy here I play paintball with who is 67 and had a heart attack last spring and he's out playing again ! This dude just shows me there is life after and motivates me to take way better care of myself,which I do...try doing Paleo....aarrgghhh but it's helping me in all kinds of areas but is not an easy diet(lifestyle) but I'm keeping to it ! I'm 57 and keeping up with guys in their 20's except injuries...lol because I have many miles on this body from playing sports my whole life and I'm not that flexable anymore...uh...time to take up yoga ,I guess. Just keep on keeping on and stay active Phuck and you will get through this.You already did the first step by surviving.
