    Dr Oz~ EKG, Ultra Sound, Stress test, Nuclear all were normal. Out of pocket, I paid for a heart saver CAT scan. I was 98% occluded! I had no symptoms. I’m wondering just how much exercise I should do after reading about Chris. Amazing and I’m very glad he survived!! I’m 76years old and not planning on doing a Triathlon! I’m feeling good, and I’m active. I know I’ll die one day but I don’t want to go through anything like Chris. I’ve already had a 2nd chance at life. If I had not paid for that heart saver CAT scan, don’t think I’d be sending you this message.
    Appreciate all that you do! Sally

    Cardiac Arrest is no joke. Only a 5-10% survival rate. And most people survive because they were in the hospital when it happened. However, that’s truly meaningless because when It’s your time, It’s your time. Pray to Jesus. Hence, that’s all you can do.
