A Warning from the Hospital
From Kayelle Allen I am writing this from a hospital bed. In the morning, I will have an angiogram. The doctors will thread a long tube through my arteries to get a better look at my heart. For two months I have ignored chest pain, thinking it was panic attacks. I finally called to set up appts and the nurse I talked to convinced me to go to the ER. A simple test showed a heart blockage. I urge you not to put off getting acheckup. I did. It could have cost me my life. I am lying in a bed writing this on a friend's tablet. Pardon the lack of pix or fancy formatting. I can't figure out how to add paragraphs. But I wanted to warn you and add a touch of reality to those nagging worries you might be having. If you are worried take action. Do it now.
