Today is not good news

Well after posting Friday when they hooked up my computer, I started having a bad headache that only got worse as the day went on, the mild chest pains started, so as soon as Al came home from work, he took me to the ER. Tests revealed I had a full blown heart attack and had to have surgery to put a stint in. I had 100% blockage in one of my main arteries. I just got home from the hospital late last night around 11:30 and went straight to bed. I am weak and bruised up quite a bit, but that will go away gradually. The doctor told us I was lucky to have gone when I did, because things could have been worse.

On top of that, Heidi lost her baby and they are all upset over it. She came to see me Friday at the hospital but didn't want to tell me to upset me, so they waited until after everything was done to tell me.

I will be taking it easy for a couple of weeks, so I hope you still stick around. I will be back and hopefully can find my Kodak disk so I can post some pictures or else I will do them on Al's computer. That's one thing I can do, sit at the computer and post. The rest will have to be left to Al to do. Thank God I have him.
Please keep me in your prayers, because my cholesterol is still very high and they said I could have a stroke if I don't follow a diet and get it down. Love YOU all, Pat

Pat, this is my first time visiting your blog, but you grabbed at my heart, and I will be praying for you. Take care of yourself. I know all about that diet thing and the fight with the cholesterol. It's always there. I'll be checking in on you to see how you are doing!

Dear Pat, I'm so sorry to learn of your heart attack. Thank goodness you got to the hospital in time for them to help you. You MUST take it easier, okay?!?!

I'm doubly saddened to learn of the loss of the baby. I had just left you a comment about it not 3 mins. ago. Your sweet family will all be in my prayers.

PLEASE take care.

Love and Hugs,

Thank you everyone for your sweet thoughts. We do appreciate it and it has helped me get through the depressinal stage of the heart attack. I am still in shock. I have to tell you, it's nothing like they show on TV---no heart grabbing, falling to the floor pain, so please be aware when something doesn't feel right, get to the doctor or ER. It may save your life. Mine was just a weird headache and whenever I had the mini stroke, I have no idea when that happened because it went undetected. Many Blessings to all of you. Love and hugs, Pat
