In 1999 I had a major Heart attack, result was a double bypass, I survived this and have lived a pretty good life since that time, well it's been 13 years and this week I had a problem, one of my arteries closed and I came damn close to having another heart failure. I was lucky enough to recognize the problem and get to the Hospital, I had to have a Stint inserted  in one of the arteries that had been previously altered. So short story is watch your health, exercise and eat well. Life is short but you can prolong it.
