I spent Most of Monday and all day Tuesday in the hospital. Had some chest pains, dizziness and shortness of breath (I had open heart surgery in 2011 and stay in a-fib most days, so I don’t take any chances. At the first symptoms of anything to do with my heart or lungs, I get to the hospital.) Passed both stress test and echo cardiogram so my cardiologist ruled out trouble with my heart and lungs.
I’ve known men who died because they didn’t take their symptoms seriously. David Letterman told Barbara Walters on a heart disease special there’s no reason for anyone to have a heart attack these days. He claimed in the interview that with all the technology and information about the heart and heart disease today, heart attacks or heart disease are almost always preventable.
The key is taking symptoms seriously. God knows our hearts. He made them. But He wants us to be good stewards of the bodies He created. I hope you all are.
