On Monday, Feb 12 I was feeling like I had the flu, throwing up, dehydration, and my bloodsugar was over 600. I couldn't control it so I went to the hospital. In the ER they ran tests and told me I had a mild heart attack, did a dye test and foound 99% blockage in my artery and put in a stint. What a shock since I didn't have the normal or even the abnormal symptoms. The DRs said 40 years of diabetes has made me a high risk and that my healthy eating, weight loss and exercise probably made it so the attack wasn't worse.
The doc says I should continue on my diet and continue exercising, although I won't be able to go back at full force right away.
I am so thankful to have made it through this and after just three days am home. I am now more conscious of how my body feels and what I need to do, as well as how important doing the right thing is.
