In Case of a Heart Attack

A Time For Action
I know from experience that it does not pay to wait around. Anytime you suspect you’re having a heart attack, be ready and willing to take action. The following may help you. I received it recently from Eastman’s Health & Wellness Program:


Don't try to "tough out" what might be a heart attack by telling yourself that the symptoms will pass. Call 911 immediately! Every minute matters.

New medications and treatments can sometimes stop heart attacks in their tracks, but you must receive them shortly after symptoms occur. 

Some heart attacks are sudden and intense but most start slowly, with mild pain or discomfort.

Some of the most common signs include chest discomfort (pressure, squeezing, pain); pain or discomfort in one or both arms, the back, neck, jaw or stomach; shortness of breath, nausea, sweating, or light headedness.

Tennessee Granddaddy Says:
The human mind is an amazing thing. It begins working and controlling our body even before we are born and does all sorts of things throughout life... only to stop functioning the minute we get up to speak.

Joke of the Day

A man went into a country grocery store to ask directions to the next town. While in the store he was browsing around, and noticed a lot of salt on the store shelves. On one counter he saw about 50 bags of 2 LB salt. On another he saw what looked like 100 bags of 5 LB salt. In the back of store he saw at least large quantity of 50 LB bags of salt. He peeped into the back room and saw a room that was packed to the ceiling with salt of different type and sizes.

Finally, he told the store keeper, "You must sell a lot of salt?"

The store keeper relied, "No, we don't sell much salt, But, there's a salesman that comes through here about once a month, and he really sells a lot of salt!"
