all's well that ends well

My mother had a slight heart attack this week, but she's home now and doing much better.

It's true that women have totally different symptoms than men. She had no shooting pains, no chest pains at all, as a matter of fact. She had sweating, nausea and just kinda passed out.

If it wasn't for the raised enzyme level, she wouldn't even have known she had one.

Last year my mother was diagnosed with Severe Accute Emphysema, they did a bunch of tests on her and come to find out she had, at some point, a mild heart attack. We never knew.

I am glad she is home and doing better, I hope she continues on such a path!

Thanks, Dustin, I hope your mom is better, too. What really shocked me was they gave my mother SEVERAL EKG's and said her heart was "fine"!
