Heart Attacks

are hereditary, unfort. since Thursday 2/15/07 I have two family members have a heart attack and each are still in the hospital. My older sister (age 37) had a triple bypass surgery on monday morning and is now recovering exceptionally fast, my uncle (dads youngest bro at age 45) had a slight H/A yesterday sometime, he is recovering from that pretty well, his B/P was 240/170 last night at 6 pm.

I will be setting up an appointment to go get my self checked out really soon.

So, if this runs in your families please get yourself checked from time to time and stay on top of this. I would hate to have a M-H brother or sister have a heart attack.

Good advice. Thats pretty young ( your sis) for a H/A.
There is a history of high blood pressure and heart attacks in my family as well. I have been monitering that for myself for awhile.

yes it was!! just got off the phone with his son, his B/P is down to 130/90 which is alot better than yesterday but still not ideal. They ran the dye thru him and everything is flowing just like it should, he's waiting to see his cardiologist now..

Just another thing to think about for you guys GET MED. INS. neither one of my family members have it, and for my sister it's gonna rediculously expensive so make sure that you young and older working people get a job with Benefits, the money doesn't matter, it's all about the benefits. With out Med. ins. money is worthless b/c you can't afford it either way

My Dad had one last year (he's 50). He quit smoking and started exercising after that.

He got really tired before the attack. Luckily he was at work when it happened. He said had he been at home then he would've jsut laid down to take a nap.
