    MI (Heart)

    I guess I am part of the club now; bad heart attack and the last thing on my radar as I never had heart issues or high BP, etc. A word of advice: You may think you will get there sooner by driving, but the EMT people are transmitting vital ECG info while on route. When I got to the ER, they pushed me through to the cath lab where everyone was ready to go. While I transferred from the EMT stretcher to the OR table, I flat lined. I only required one zap to get me going and I am sorry to report that there is no information I can bring you from the other side. I will be back next week for a few more stents.

    Glad you came through (relatively) okay. I've got three stents, myself.

    And I would echo and extend your warning about driving yourself to the ER if you're having a heart attack. Not only is it slower, but you may not make it, at all! And, what's worse is, you may take someone else out, too, if you lose control.

    Glad to hear that wasn't worse than it could've been.

    Glad your still kicking!

    Speed is always the key ... how quickly can you get into the cath lab for intervention. As you point out, getting your vitals to the hospital ASAP can help you bypass the ER and get there faster.

    Two open heart, quad by-passes and a new valve...... never fun..... get well soon and do what the stupid doctor says!

    Good food is essential, where knives are an integral part of the process.
