Young or old, anybody can suffer a heart attack

Every so often we are made to  realize and are faced with the fragility of life.    

The circle of life happens every day.We live a long life and as our bodies wear out we are faced with  and realize the inevitable will happen some day.

during his heart surgery


We never expect to be surprised at a young age that life can be threatened so easily,hence my young son having a heart attack.

Living a fast life style and not taking care of his body caused an almost total blockage of his main left artery; a  fatal finding if not addressed immediately with surgery.  We are thanking GOD and an angel that must have been watching over him because he obtained medical attention in time and has a new lease on life.  

If anything else, it has taught us that even at a young age we must not ignore the warning signs; chest pain, indigestion and shoulder pain were his symptoms.
Joel, rest up and feel better
L'chayim!(To Life)


Many wanted to treat him with digestion medications.Who would imagine that it was his heart. Listen to that little voice in your head and seek emergency treatment. It can and most often will save your life. 



"Judy, Judy, Judy!"

Hana Hou, (Encore)
