On October 25, 2011 I had a heart attack. The problem was, I didn’t know it was a heart attack. Women, pay attention! It’s true that our symptoms can be VERY different. I woke up somewhere around 2:00 AM with ‘discomfort’ in the middle of my chest. It was so minor that I told myself to go back to sleep. I couldn’t. So I got up and went to the living room wondering what it could be. It was not pain, pressure, indigestion – just an uncomfortable ‘sensation’.
Here is the Angel part. I decided to call a good friend who lives close to me. I dialed her number and it rang twice and I got a fast busy signal. Hmmm – I tried again, paying particular attention to the digits I was dialing. I got a busy signal. I thought about it a bit more and decided to dial 911. I didn’t even know what I was going to say but when the dispatcher answered I told him I THOUGHT I MIGHT be having a heart attack. Where did those words come from? They were not in my consciousness before I said them. When I got to the hospital I asked them to call my friend and they got right through. She looked later and I didn’t even show up on her caller id!
IF I had gotten her on the phone, we would have talked about it some, then she would have gotten up, put on some clothes and came here. By that time I was in the ambulance (they took 5 minutes to get here from the time I was talking to the dispatcher) and I already had an EKG, nitro, aspirin and an IV and we were flying, lights and sirens, to the hospital. I was furious that I could not get her but later realized that it might have saved my life that I could NOT get her. Thank you God!
