    Last Tuesday morning at around 11:15 am, I had a heart attack. I am recovering well. Just curious. Any of you guys or gals ever have a heart attack? There's a simple "Yes" or "No" poll.

    That is pretty scary - glad to hear you are on the mend. Good luck with your recovery.

    I've never had a heart attack but I do have the "ear lobe crease" which is apparently an indicator of an increased chance of heart attack. So I changed my diet and exercise more.

    Darn Dracky. Hope you make a full recovery.

    You really should type that blood before you feed.

    I had a heart attack on Christmas Eve 2002 at age 54 - I was in ICU for a week was transfered to Trillium Health Centre in Toronto and a stent was put into the lower right quadrant of my heart. I lost about 10% of my heart as a result of the attack. It took about one year for full recovery. I had to stop smoking, take Lipitor and take two BP tabs daily.

    You'll get back to normal Count, take it easy and think positive.

    Good luck,
    Yukon

    Thanks for all the well-wishes everybody. I am feeling better and it's not yet my time to own property in the bone yard. Doctor's say to slow down quite a bit so I guess from now on I'll not feed on any more high test blood.
