I was riding in Missouri this weekend (from Minnesota) and ended up in the ER with chest and back pain. Turns out that I had apparently had a heart attack some time in the previous 24 hours. They put 2 stents in my heart. How is this a victory? In the past 6 months, I have lost 40 pounds and been walking 3-7 miles a day. The Drs told me that it may be that is why I was able to survive the type of heart attack that is commonly called a "widowmaker". 3 days after the procedure and I am felling better than I have in a long time!
