Power of Possible: Heart Attack Survivor

Power of Possible: Heart Attack Survivor


Welcome to this week’s Power of Possible. Brought to you by UConn Health. I knew that, just from those pains, that they
were totally different than what I have felt previously, or anything. They came out and threw me it the back of
the ambulance, and before I knew it I was at UConn Health … come to find out I had
had a heart attack. Whether it’s two o’clock in the afternoon,
or two in the morning, we have a team available. We have a very quick response time, probably
among the fastest in the state of Connecticut. We’ve had arteries opened up within 13 minutes
after people come into the emergency department. The care has been excellent. They follow up with me every year. And for the past 15 years he decided to give
himself a number of physical challenges. What else do you do after a heart attack? You go mountain climbing, right? In my book that’s what happens. I’d like to have his level of fitness myself. And I’m in decent shape. Well I’m hoping my kids someday will get married
and I’ll have a bunch of grandchildren running around and I can chase them around the place. Get them on my drums and play some drums together. Yeah, that’s what I’m looking foward to. And being healthy. I don’t want to be in a wheelchair when I’m
80 years old. I just want to keep doing what I’m doing as
long as I can. Definitely.
