94. I am sorry for your loss of your father
I have been inspired to write to you because almost the exact same thing happened to me, only a matter of weeks ago. Too much heart medication was also the factor in my case. I live alone in the rural forest at Yosemite, and I have no family. In my case, I walked into the bathroom and reached up to close an open window. Then I passed out and fell hitting my head on the porcelain tub. I don't know how long I was out, but when I regained consciousness, the buzzing in my head would not go away. I called 911 and ended up taking a 50 mile ride in a med-evac to the only hospital in the area with a cardio unit. They started with a cat-scan and finished about one week later by stopping my heart for an instant and then starting it back up again, only with its' beating in rhythm with itself this time, instead of the way it was before. I'm home now, and none for the worse. Except I know now that it is just a matter of time. But I do hope I get to stay around long enough to see the repukes soundly defeated in the next election. That would make me so happy. The truly remarkable aspect of the whole experience is that I received all of that wonderful treatment with them knowing that I don't have any insurance, or money to pay for it on my own. And for that I am truly grateful.
