Survival and life goes onAbout a week and a half ago I had a heart attack and a was throwing blood clots into my lungs. It woke me out of a sound sleep. I was having trouble breathing, I also have nasal allergies which keep me breathing difficult anyway. So in my sleepy mind I just felt it was ok, I then started throwing up, diarreha, sweating, clammy skin, shaking you name it. So I thought I had food poisoning. Still having trouble breathing my husband says we need to get this breathing looked at. Its late afternoon so I sent off a email to the dr saying that I was going to come in the following day because of my breathing, and gave him all of what was going on. I woke up the next day with the same thing only not so bad. Called and got an appointment the first thing they did was do an EKG on me. Now I am thing to myself this is strange for not breathing well.... Obviously still no inkling that I had a heart attack. He came in and was looking very concerned, showed my husband and myself the EKG and did a fast explaintion and said go straight to ER. Now I get it! Heart attack.
Well, they did a EKG there too and it all raced from there, blood work showed the enzeyme relating to a heart attack was high so I had a heart attack. So much blood work, blood pressure, one very small artery in my heart is somewhat blocked. Ok guys still having a heard time breathing right somebody want to get on that? They did an ultra sound of my lungs and had several doctors read it and told me I had blood clots on my lungs. Ok, great, so blood thinners, beta blockers, cholesterol meds, aspirin, I am alive. Having this happen while I was asleep....... I could definatly not be here right now.
My my mom had congestive heart, my dad died throwing blood clots into his lungs..... Those thoughts put me in a OMG place. I have been spared for some other reason. What exactly is that reason? I don't know yet. But I do know I am going to cherish every day I wake up and enjoy every sunrise and every sunset. Enjoy watching the rabbits hop along, and the quail. I will resume my walking as soon as I am told I can. I live in a hilly area so I will probably need the ok first. I don't want to waste a single moment, no arguing, no hatred, only love, like and happiness.
