Well I guess we all get wake up calls at some point in our life. One of mine came on June 14, 2001 when I had a heart attack. The technical explanation was a complete blockage of the Left Anterior Descending Artery (LAD) which required a Percutaneous Transluminal Coronary Angioplasty (PCTA) and a stent to strengthen the arterial walls. This type of condition is known as "The Widow Maker" because it strikes quickly, without warning and in many cases with fatal results. Modern medicine rocks! Below are some images of my heart in various states. I have documented my experience for those that are interested.

NOTE: I am not a medical professional and am in no position to offer and advice or opinion related to coronary care. Please contact a qualified medical professional if you have cardiac related questions.
