I'm back yet again!!!! Can't keep a dedicated fractalist down for long!!! Yippeeeee!
Thanks so very much for all the prayers and good wishes from all my dear friends!!!!
Can't really tell ya what it was, first they said heart attack, then not, then it was, then
it wasn't again!! lol So obviously they just didn't know!! (Which is even more scary then
the heart attack!)!!
I went to bed the other morning and had some pretty intense pain in my chest, thru my
shoulder and down my left arm. It had happened last week also but taking an aspirin seemed
to fix the problem. This time it was very intense and I took some Nitro that I have to keep
handy at all times. The pain disappeared once the Nitro went to work but came back even
stronger after 15 minutes! I figured I was in trouble.
I hopped in the Jeep and took off for a hospital where I had done some cardiac rehab in
the past. They took real good care of me and did their best to figure out what was
going on but never did find the cause. They pumped me full of Nitro and blood thinners,
and drew a couple gallons (it seemed like) of blood for testing. There is an enzyme secreted
when having a heart attack and apparently it was there and elevated but not enough for
them to call it a heart attack. When I pushed for a diagnosis they said "it's a heart problem
but not a heart attack"! lol I'm not sure what that means!!
SO I'm back again!!!!!!!! You guys will have to put up with me for a while longer!!! lol
