Where I spent July 17th...

Well, my day started at 4:30 a.m. when I woke to a crushing feeling on my chest. I've had an irregular heart beat for years which had successfully been controlled by medication. They aren't sure what set this off, but might be related to dehydration. I did dial 911 and was taken to the hospital by ambulance. Once on my way, they started to administer a drug the pain slowly went away. My heart slowed and I was much more comfortable. They, and I, thought it might be a heart attack, but they didn't detect the hormone the body releases when that happens. They kept me under observation all day and were comfortable sending me home at 5 p.m.
So, that is why you didn't see the usual stream of posts in the morning. I'll take it easy for a while.
