Grandma had a heart attack Sunday morning. Fortunately, we were at home and not at church yet. She sat up on the side of the bed, and it hit her. I called 911, gave her 2 aspirin, and went outside to wait for the paramedics. They were there in what only seemed 3 minutes. They were in and out in less than 5 and to the hospital which is not too far. When I got to the ER (only 30 minutes after I called 911), they already had her hooked up and had the patches on her and nitro under her tongue.
There was no "medical sign" of a heart attack which means that we were able to stop the attack before damage was done.
She was able to come home today, Monday.
I am driving to Dyersburg in the morning to drop her off with my uncle who will take her to Jackson to see the heart specialist's nurse practitioner. I'd go with her myself, but I have no one to leave my two girls with.
Please pray that she will not have a second attack and that the weather will cooperate tomorrow as the weather forecast is calling for sleet and freezing rain.
