A Miracle Made Possible By a Comedy of Errors

Story image

   I am 70 years of age now. I had been diagnosed with asthma in the 1990's by several pulmonologists ans many General Practioners. The idea that this was the raeson fort my breathing issues took on a life of its own, as I gamely tried to abstain from the asthma meds in favor of wholistic herbs and diet which worked modestly at best. This went on for over 20 years, as more doctors, pulmonologists, and even a Park Avenue cardiologist (who pronounced me clear for hip replacement after suffering 6 hours of every test) told me it was asthma and that my EKG's were a bit skewed but just particular to my physiology. I ad an ubknown  mild heart attack in June, 2018 and again in August 2018, The next day I felt lousy and drove to a walk in clinic, had an EKG, and they directed me to the Emergency Room which was followeed by a quadruple bypass due to 80% to 90% clogs. Afterward, following hard work, diet modification and excercise, I am in better shape at 70 than I was at 50 years of age. There was no asthma. But I'm gratefull for the health and energy I now have. Mine is not an unusual story. Thanks for reading on.

    Scotsrish,

    What an amazing story and more than ever i am convinced at how strong the human body can be. Mis diagnoses happens all too frequently  no matter what part of the globe you are from. I was given the green light after many tests and was told i would live a long and healthy life just last year. I had a heart attack and two stents. The thing is I knew there was something wrong, i knew they needed to look closely at my heart but they convinced me i was wrong.

    ZackENG,

    You know this is so great that you are such a strong man! I can tell the same story. My friend who works as a writer at this writing service for buying assignment where hundred of students order assignments every day also has this disease. He still works, but doc said that he should stop. So now all of his family and friends are trying to persuade him to stop it. This is also terrible to see how people should stop making things that they love.
