Just wanted to say thank you to the thoughtful folks who sent me such lovely kind emails during my recent hospitalization.
It was a close call and an eye opener for sure, so I really appreciate the encouragement and support. Unfortunately, my family has a history of heart problems, and I foolishly ignored symtoms and waited way too long to see a doctor.
I'm very glad to finally be home recovering and back to work.

I'm glad to hear you are recovering. I lost my 56 year old brother to a heart attack last year. Family history of heart problems also ... take care and enjoy life!

Thank you all for your kind thoughts.
I fortunately got to the hospital before a heart attack happened. My body started retaining fluid at an alarming rate and volume, which led to barely being able to breathe and I couldn't eat. The fluid was basically choking me from the inside out.
They determined it was congestive heart failure which I will have to manage with meds and a lo salt diet, but I'm definitely ok with that. My biggest scare was that they thought I might have blockages which would require bypass surgery, but the angel on my shoulder got me through a cardiac catheterization that showed no blockages or clots.
My doctors told me if I had not gotten to the hospital when I did and had immediate treatment, I probably would not be typing this right now. So I am eternally grateful for the excellent care I received and am still receiving.
And I learned a hard lesson...to pay attention when my body tells me something is wrong. The potential price of ignoring it is way too high.
