Wendell Strode

I received an email via my Membership in the ZR1 Net Registry that Wendell Strode had a Heart Attack while on Vacation on a Cruise to Alaska. From what they said it wasn't a bad one but none is Better.

A note from Wendell, from noon today, July 15

After returning from Alaska last Saturday, we have taken it pretty easy. Tuesday I went in for about 3 hours and a little more each day. Yesterday was my first appointment with a Bowling Green Cardiologist.

He reviewed all the notes and information we brought back with us from Alaska. Plus they did an EKG there in the office. The summary from our meeting:
• I did have a minor heart attack.
• The work that was done in Alaska including the prescriptions they put me in – he agreed with and renewed them (4 prescriptions)
• I have some damage to the muscles in the front of the heart. My understanding, a normal heart should pump 60% of the blood in the heart out and retain 40%. My heart is pumping 40% out and retaining 60%.
• He said it would be about 12 weeks for us to know the amount of repair or building back of muscle, the stents and the medicine will accomplish. So he will do some testing in October and then see me again the following week.
• Talked about lifestyle changes I should make to assist in the repair/building back – mostly diet and exercise.
• Said to go ahead and start building up to my normal work schedule and if my body says it is tired to take a rest. Same with exercise – start with a few minutes each day and build up to 30 minutes each day where my heart rate is over 100.

I really liked Dr. Waheed. Several people I know were there to see him when I got out and they confirmed how much they liked him and respected him as a cardiologists.

His only downfall is that he drives a Porsche, but I started working on that yesterday!

Very blessed and very fortunate. Many, many thanks for your thoughts and prayers!!!
