So, on the evening of May 8, I was napping in my favorite chair. Suddenly I awoke with the feeling that if I didn't move I was going to die. The room seemed to be getting dark too. I got up and checked both my blood pressure and blood sugar. My blood sugar was ok but my blood pressure was 178/104! I sat at the kitchen table for a while but the feeling didn't go away. That was when I told my husband to get me to the hospital! Before we got there I started having a weird burning sensation in my left upper chest and shoulder. I had all the tests at the hospital, cardiac enzymes were negative. Had a stress test which was good except for one area the doc couldn't see. So, last Monday I had a cardiac catherization and the doc placed two stents. One of the areas was blocked by better than 90%!
Fast forward to today and I am feeling better. Yesterday was a really good day! I felt better than I have in a very long time. I suppose it will be a while before I am 100%.
I guess you just never know when stuff is going to happen.
