Are you a heart event survivor?
"I quit smoking, eat better, and try to exercise which is a big downfall of mine."
"I was sitting in my chair and my arms hurt badly. I went to the ER and nothing showed up. I took aspirin and came home went to bed. The next day, my arms were still hurting. I called my doctor; he said go to another hospital ER. I did and sure enough I was leaking enzymes from my heart. He put 3 or 4 stents in because I was blocked badly. I have felt good ever since. I quit smoking, eat better, and try to exercise which is a big downfall of mine. I thank God everyday for each day and I appreciate and love my family more and more each day. I had no warning signs but for years my left arm hurt off and on and I felt sluggish. Thank God for my doctor and the meds he put me on to save my life."
