I hope everyone has seen this funny and really, far too realistic video, produced by Go Red for Women, the American Heart Association’s women’s heart health campaign.
The day of my heart attack started as a totally normal day, and I expected normalcy to resume at any moment (hmm, still waiting). I called Scott from the ER to make sure Owen’s rain gear was packed for camp. I called again from the ICU to give instructions on what to pack for Noah’s trip to my brother’s house while I was in the hospital. I emailed work colleagues after surgery. At the time it didn’t seem real. My head seemed to be the last thing to catch on.
Please watch and share this video, then check out the warning signs of a heart attack. It’s not always what you think.
