Set Back !

We enjoyed our long overdue trip to Florida and Myrtle Beach and North Carolina, got home and settled in to wait for the arrival of Spring, we had a terrible snow storm as you can see from my earlier post !
. Well, things went along fine until Sunday night, we went to bed about 10PM, I laid down and my heart started to pound,  got up and took Blood Pressure and it was sky high and my heart rate was over 120,   My honey called 911 and within 3 minutes they were at our door.
While talking to the 911 dispatch my honey gave me 4 baby aspirin, I chewed them up, then I took a Nitro Tab, and was loaded on a strecher.
I was taken to Carthage Area Hospital as fast as possible, to the ER Room, put me in a IV, pumped some Nitro Glycerine into me, and later admitted me to ICU!
My Heart Doctor came in, I had some medications administered, put on bed rest, I came home last night and got to sleep in my own bed!!
I had another Angina attack, I had my last one on November 5th or 2016 so have done pretty good.
Right now I am home, resting and taking it easy for a few days, It's OK as the temps outside are 8 above and it goes up to 12 degrees, we do however have nice weather coming.
Just gonna take it easy for a while.  Hope everyone is doing OK!!!! 
Remember our Veterans !!!!!

WOW, what a scare. I know you have been on the other end of emergencies many times. Sorry it was you this time. At least you have a sweet beauty to nurse you.(Don't let her get you too excited for a few days! ;-) ). Set backs are much better at home than on the road.
Take care follow HER orders and try to relax.
Love and good thoughts from Florida!
