Heart attack at 35
(Kansas City, MO)
Last Saturday (5/7/2011) my older brother age 35 thought he had heart burn and took some otc antacid meds. A little later he was having stomach pains so they went to the hospital thinking it might be his a gallbladder or an ulcer. They did blood work and said he might have one of the two wrong with his stomach or gallbladder but they told him he had a heart attack in the last 6 to 12 hours. He didn't even know he had a heart attack! Today (5/11/2011) he had surgery they originally thought it was going to be a quadruple bypass but then quickly realized he needed a quintuple bypass(I didn't even know there was such a thing). He is now in recovery and over the next couple hours they are going to slowly wake him up. Before his surgery this morning I told him we would make time to go on the long distance motorcycle ride we always talk about as soon as he is healed completely. He had an amazing group of doctors and nurses so I'm sure he'll be great in no time.
