Friends, Wednesday afternoon I had a heart attack. Ive been feeling bad for a little while and having some chest pains, but due to obligations, I ignored it. I drove home wed. and wanted Cindy to take me to the hospital. Too late, she called 911 and paramedics kept me breathing until the doctors could operate. The main artery in to my heart was totally blocked. By the miracles of modern medicine I am home now an feeling pretty good. Listen to what I say and not what I do. If you are not happy with your doctors, don't wait, find another one.I have been putting off looking for another doctor since the one I have missed my diabetes for several years. Even with anual checkups he never ran an EKG or checked my heart in anyway even though he has been treating me for high bloodpressure and cholesterol for years. The sonobitch showed up at the hospital yesterday and had the attitude that I should have listened to him and it was all my fault. He came back today AFTER going through my medical records and had a completely different attitide about it. He found out after looking in the records the my cholesterol has been running in the 120s and my BP has been normal. There is nothing I could have done different to prevent this except to get a better doctor. He could have known and prevented this with a simple EKG last january when he gave me my physical. PLEASE, take care of yourself and don't trust your doctore if you have ANY questions at all about your health. I now have a cardiologist that assures me I will not have any more trouble as long as I follow his instructions and take care of myself.
