Bad news about another uncle.... 

Two of Dan's uncles died in a little over a year apart. Tonight I got word that a third uncle, his Uncle Jim, had a heart attack on Monday. Luckily the damage was minor, more of a wakeup call than anything else, but one of Jim's arteries was 95 percent blocked. He had an angioplasty which apparently went well, and he was released from the hospital today.

I think Jim is going to take this seriously and do the necessary lifestyle changes so as to prevent a recurrence. These things are always scary, though. Dan will probably call his parents tomorrow to see if there is anymore news.

I guess even apparently healthy people shouldn't take their health for granted. I am very relieved it wasn't worse.

Pain level: 5
Fatigue level: 8
