Heart attack

Occurred at 1400, called 911, Broward Fire and Rescue stabilized me, ER quickly prepped me for catheterization and the surgeon put a stint in the offending artery. I’ll be in the hospital for two days.

It sucks but it could be worse.

As much as I hate to read about you having a heart attack, I'm glad to read it as a first hand account in recovery.

You must have had a STEMI for such a quick diagnosis.

Speedy recovery.

Glad you're ok! Take good care of yourself! The stent may be the warning shot across the bow. Listen to the Doctors...and SOCNET members.
