Thankful

by lewwaters

Many knew I was to have nose surgery the day before Thanksgiving. While the surgery went well, not everything did.

After being home a few hours my chest began hurting in a way unlike I have felt before. Called 911 and was taken back to the Portland VA where they checked me in, confirmed I did indeed have a heart attack and I remain awaiting an angiogram to assess the damage to my heart.

It is expected to be minor.

My Dad died from a massive heart attack at age 54 and I’m 68 and thankful it was relatively minor.
