I just didn't want to make this post. Not here. We've suffered enough bad news, heart ache and loss. I had a heart attack last Thursday. In my opinion it was pretty mild. I woke up at 2:30 AM with a moderate amount of chest pain. I have high blood pressure, so I checked it. 195/110. That was enough to be very alarming. I googled a bit, waited for the pain to go, and within 20 minutes I called a medic. 15 hours later I had 3 stents in my heart and a whole lot of questions.

Physically, I feel better than I have in quite some time. Emotionally and psychological, I've got some ground to cover. While nothing changed, everything changed. Like anyone else, I had a brush for death and realize I have not prepared adequately. I'll take care of the financial side, do a living will, then continue to live life on my terms and enjoy however much time I have left, whether its 5 years or 50.

I love you guys.

Great to hear from you Tony....glad you're doin' ok and recovering well.
Sounds as though you've got your head around the situation you find yourself in
and are taking adequate measures to keep things going in the right direction.
 
Stay safe and take care my friend...........best wishes to you and Lisa.
