After some Xrays and test it turns out I wasn't having an asthma attack, I had congestive heart failiure and was immediatly admitted where i am still sitting for god know how long. After EKG's and sonagrams it turns out. My heart is only working at 10% capacity and it's 1.5 time larger then it's supposed to be. My lungs backed up with fluid fro the heart not pumping properly. Tomorrow or Tues I'm being transfered to a Hospital more equiped for Cardiac procedures. Next they do the fun, enjoyable catharasation where the send a camera to the heart.
I knew life got ruff over 40 but I would have assumed AFTER 40 not on the actual day! Anyway, I will not be in Sarasota next weekend.
It never fails, just when it seems things are going well, life is good, New boat to look forward to, life throws you a curve ball. Good thing it happend like this, it could have been much worse. I will post update when I have them.
The same thing happened to me last year! I was 38 years old and went on a snowmobile trip. We got up to the cabins and I started having a hard time breathing. When we got home, I told my wife and thought I must have some resperitory infection and thought it would go away. It did'nt, so I went to the emergency room and they immediately admitted me for heart failure. My heart was pumping at 11.2%.! The docter told me if I would have waited much longer, I would have been either dead or in serious trouble. All I can say is get ready for new diet and some life altering changes. Low sodium and exercise wil do the heart wonders. Good luck with everything!!!! Later, Dave
