Not having a Mickey kind of day!

Posting this from the local hospital ICU ward. I had a little incident yesterday, had a heart attack. I'm just glad I'm able to be the one telling you this and not scrappy having to tell you. Luckily I recognized the symptoms fast enough and called 911. Scary feeling though knowing your life could be slipping away. They were able to get me in here fast enough and put in 2 stents. Had 99 % blockage in 1 artery in 2 spots. It's amazing what they can do these days. Doctor was just in here and said I will probably go home tomarrow if all goes well. We will keep you informed.

Well I have to say I am glad you are the one typing this as well and so quickly afterwards.

I just lost my Uncle to this 3 weeks ago, you just made me very happy that you are up and going.

It's good that you have your priorities straight, since you're posting on WDWFG from the ICU! laugh In all seriousness, I'm so grateful that you saw the symptoms early and called 911. What a scary situation. Thank goodness you've got great medical care nearby. Our love to you and Scrappy! Disney World will be even sweeter this time!

My jaw dropped when I read this - I'm so happy you were able to recognize what was happening and get help quickly. Lots of vibes that you are able to be up and moving soon - at least you have Disney to look forward to to help get you motivated!

Hello all. Well i was released from the hospital yesterday. yay clapping biggrin First thing i asked the doctor after he went over the list of can and can't do's was how this would effect us going to disney and going on rides and he said " It shouldn't make a difference at all". So we are clear for our trip in Oct! Waaahooooo! I just have a 2 week down time right now before I can go back to work. Thank you all for all the get well wishes.

YAY MRHUB! Welcome home. Funny how the first question we all ask our doctors after some medical incident is how it might impact Disney trips! Great great news for October!

Take it easy for the next few weeks and get yourself back to your regular self. And listen to everything scrappy tells you! laugh

I just saw this now for the first time. I'm SO extremely glad that you are alright, that you are home, and that you can go on Disney rides. I'm glad you saw the signs and took care of yourself. What a scare.
