Well, this has been an interesting week, and not in a good way.
My mother who is a young 59 year old who watches what she eats, exercises every day, and has a rather low cholesterol level, had a heart attack Saturday.
It completely blew my mind. It completely blew every one's mind! Nobody would have ever suspected that this woman, who takes such good care of herself, would be struck down by a heart attack.
Turns out that it was only one artery with a blockage. She was catheterized and they inserted two stents. The Doctor was rather surprised by how clear all her other arteries are.
So.... Ultimately, she will be fine. The damage to her heart was negligible, and the shape that she is in will make the cardiac therapy extremely easy (Dr.'s words). But what an experience...
