Wow, Mac, that is quite an ordeal! Glad you are doing okay, if still in pain from the ribs. Take good care of yourself and allow the time to heal properly (both heart and ribs).

Oh geez, Mac! Glad you came back alive! DH recently had a couple broken ribs from a fall, not fun. Here's hoping for a speedy recovery.

Use a small pillow to splint your ribs when you have to cough, just hug it tight, sound counterproductive, but it does help. Ask for Cardiac Rehab...they can get you moving at a slow pace and teach you the best way to come back from this.

I didn't need CPR with my heart attack, but I do empathize with needing the time and pace to recover.

Wow. Good thing someone was around.
Looks like it's time to give up smoking then. That what the heartattack people I know do.

You know, you may have just saved another heart attack Pac. I've had it in the back of my mind that I should quit smoking and Mac appears to be quite a bit younger than me from his "Post a Picture of Yourself thread" and I just noticed the smoke in his avatar. I showed Mrs D this thread and we agreed we are off tomorrow to pick up a couple of ecigs. No time like the present.
Thanks Pac.

What a terrible scare Mac !! Your ribs will heal and I hope your heart does too. I have the impression you're quite young (young being my kids age). Do you have a family history of heart problems? I worry about my sons as there's a history on their father's side.
