Heart Attacks and Drinking Warm Water

I received this in an email at work today. It is very interesting, so I decided to share it with all of you.

A   very good article which takes two minutes to read. I’m sending this to persons I care about…….I hope you do too!!!

Heart Attacks And Drinking Warm Water

This is a very good article. Not only about the warm water after your meal, but about Heart  Attacks.

The Chinese and Japanese drink hot tea with their meals, not  cold water, maybe it is time we adopt their drinking habit while eating.

For those who like to drink cold water, this article is  applicable to you. It is nice to have a cup of cold drink after a meal. However, the cold water will solidify the oily stuff that you have just consumed. It will slow down the digestion. Once this ‘sludge’ reacts with the acid, it will break down and be absorbed by the intestine faster than the solid food. It will line the intestine. Very soon, this will turn into fats and lead  to cancer.  It is best to drink hot soup or warm water after a  meal.

Common Symptoms Of Heart Attack… 
A  serious note about heart attacks – You should know that not every heart attack symptom is going to be the left arm  hurting . Be aware of intense pain in the jaw line.

You may never have the first chest pain during the course of a heart attack. Nausea and intense sweating are also common symptoms. 60% of people who have a heart attack while they are asleep do not wake up.. Pain in the jaw can wake you from a sound sleep. Let’s be careful and be aware. The more we know, the better chance we could   survive.

A cardiologist says if everyone who reads this message sends it to 10 people,  you can be sure that we’ll save at least one life. Read this & Send to a friend. It could save a life… So, please be a true friend and send this article to all your friends you care about.

I JUST DID (well, sortof ;))

F-Word Friday

F-Word Friday

F-Word Friday is a theme that I am stealing/borrowing from fellow blogger and friend Ms.Darkstar. It is a day to take a random word, that begins with F (of course), and express your thoughts accordingly.

This week’s F-Word is Fragile.

I can’t believe that it has really been a week since I last posted. To those few that actually read what I write, I’m sorry for leaving you hanging. For the rest of you, well, at least you haven’t missed much. This past week has been very busy, and has ended by putting me up against the ropes.

As you have seen, this week’s F-Word is fragile. As in, life is fragile, handle with care.

As I said, this week has been one hell of a week. Started off where I had to work two nights for 12 hours (Monday and Tuesday nights), and found out on Monday night/Tuesday morning that I had training sessions – for four hours each day – on Wednesday and Thursday from 11a-3p (thank goodness they only lasted until 2p). So, as you can probably expect, I am extremely tired today, now that the weekend is here for me.

No, that is not what I am talking about when I say that life is fragile.

Wednesday night/Thursday morning (well, all day actually) was a day of life-changing events. Not only for myself, but for others around me.

I witnessed two people being escorted out of the company I work for. Definitely NOT something that I was really wanting to even think about. Especially considering the fact that I just moved my family here a couple weeks ago! And then, I get called into the office!…

As you can probably imagine, my heart almost stopped. I felt like I was going to get sick. I feared what I was going to tell my wife and kids. Until the General Manager of the company offered me a position on first shift! THAT made up for all the fears I was having (and the wife is pretty happy about it too :)).

Then, I get home from my afternoon meeting (mind you, I work 3rd shift, so it is a “middle of the night” meeting for me) to find out that my Grandma was in the hospital, in ICU, and on a respirator, back in Michigan! The wife tells me that my Mom wanted me to call her back. Being the type of person I am, I tell my wife that I will wait until today to call her. Ya-know, kinda let the emotions settle down.

That was until I seen a posting by my cousin on FB that they took my Grandma off the respirator, replied to her posting and got a reply back telling me to call my Mom cause she has been trying to get a hold of me, and seeing that she had called from three different phones. While talking to Mom, found out that Grandma will never recover! Or, if by some miracle she does, she will NEVER be the Grandma we all knew.

 And now, the waiting begins… waiting for that dreaded phone call. I Love You Grandma T.

So, yes, my friends, life is fragile, handle it with care.
