So Three Weeks Ago The Beast Had This “Heart Attack” Thingy…

and is now the proud possessor of a “stent” in his right coronary artery. Naturally this had to happen 10 days before heath insurance kicked in at the new job.  The good news is that the attack itself was tiny (he thought it was a sore throat) and damage minimal. One blockage in one artery that was fixed literally 3 hours after he walked into the emergency room. On Friday afternoon of Memorial Day weekend, no less! The cardiologist showed up in shorts and a tee shirt.

There’s nothing like restored blood flow to make a guy feel Aces. He was back to work six days later. When the Beast-dad had his heart attack in 1988 he was out for 5 months. Technology is amazing.
