Escape from a Heart Attack
My dad has been having chest pressure for the last week or so. He went to the urgent care initially and he was scheduled for an Exercise Stress Test.
He completed it and then never heard the results. No news is good news, right? Plus the technicians said it looked fine
On Tuesday morning around 1 am, the pressure returned. Difference is that this time it was not exercised induced. My mom took him to the ER and he had a heart cath with 2 stents placed later that day.
He came home and is doing well.
It scares me to think of him being on the back nine of golf and suffering a heart attack.
His dad had his first heart attack at age 42. Genetics are definitely not on our side.
Oh, that exercise stress test--- it was abnormal-- one would think there should have been a call made!!!
