Sadly, on Friday my 73 yo neighbor died of a heart attack. A few days before his wife had called us to try to help her get him in bed because he was too tired to swing his legs up on the bed. She got him in bed before we got there, but she told hubby that he was sooo tired that day, perhaps from exercising. Now he was not healthy for a while, overweight and on oxygen for a few years, but we all missed the fatigue as a warning sign. My father-in-law was also very fatigued leading up to his heart attack. I'm not sure either could have been prevented, but it's something to think about if someone you know is extremely fatigued for no real reason..they may want to get checked out.
Viewing tonite..it's gonna be hard..he was our neighbor for 22 years.
I live my life in celebration that I've got a life to live.
My prayers are with his family, friends, and neighbors as you all deal with the loss. Thanks for the heads-up on heart attack symptoms. I would not have remembered this, even though I've been CPR certified for years!
