Last week I had a nice visit here in Coos Bay, OR with my grandson Vinnie
and his girlfriend Alyssa from Monroe, WA
They are on a road trip around the United States.
He told me he had planned on asking Alyssa to marry him after they left here and headed for the Redwood Forest. He showed me the ring and was so excited.
He did it! He ask her to marry him in the Magical Trees. She was so surprised but she said YES!
So happy for them and to see my family grow. I love Alyssa and I welcome her with open arms.
Here is some very interesting and important information I wanted to share with all of you.
ATTACKS AND WATER ! How many folks do you know who say they don't want to drink
anything before going to bed because they'll have to get up during the night.
Heart Attack and Water - I never knew all of this
! Interesting....... Something else I didn't know ... I asked my Doctor why
people need to urinate so much at night time. Answer from my Cardiac Doctor -
Gravity holds water in the lower part of your body when you are upright (legs
swell). When you lie down and the lower body (legs and etc) seeks level with the
kidneys, it is then that the kidneys remove the water because it is easier.
then ties in with the last statement! I knew you need your minimum water to help
flush the toxins out of your body, but this was news to me. Correct time to
drink water... Very Important. From A Cardiac Specialist! Drinking water at a
certain time maximizes its effectiveness on the body 2 glasses of water after
waking up - helps activate internal organs 1 glass of water 30 minutes before a
meal - helps digestion 1 glass of water before taking a bath - helps lower blood
pressure 1 glass of water before going to bed - avoids stroke or heart attack I
can also add to this...
My Physician told me that water at bed time will also
help prevent night time leg cramps. Your leg muscles are seeking hydration when
they cramp and wake you up with a Charlie Horse. Mayo Clinic Aspirin Dr. Virend
Somers, is a Cardiologist from the Mayo Clinic, who is lead author of the report
in the July 29, 2008 issue of the Journal of the American College of Cardiology.
Most heart attacks occur in the day, generally between 6 A.M. and noon. Having
one during the night, when the heart should be most at rest, means that
something unusual happened. Somers and his colleagues have been working for a
decade to show that sleep apnea is to blame.
1. If you take an aspirin or a baby
aspirin once a day, take it at night. The reason: Aspirin has a 24-hour
"half-life"; therefore, if most heart attacks happen in the wee hours of the
morning, the Aspirin would be strongest in your system.
2. FYI, Aspirin lasts a
really long time in your medicine chest, for years, (when it gets old, it smells
like vinegar). Please read on... Something that we can do to help ourselves -
nice to know. Bayer is making crystal aspirin to dissolve instantly on the
tongue. They work much faster than the tablets. Why keep Aspirin by your
bedside? It's about Heart Attacks. There are other symptoms of a heart attack,
besides the pain on the left arm.
One must also be aware of an intense pain on
the chin, as well as nausea and lots of sweating; however, these symptoms may
also occur less frequently.
Note: There may be NO pain in the chest during a
heart attack. The majority of people (about 60%) who had a heart attack during
their sleep did not wake up. However, if it occurs, the chest pain may wake you
up from your deep sleep. If that happens, immediately dissolve two aspirins in
your mouth and swallow them with a bit of water.
Afterwards: - Call 911. - Phone
a neighbor or a family member who lives very close by.- Say "heart attack!" -
Say that you have taken 2 Aspirins. Take a seat on a chair or sofa near the
front door, and wait for their arrival and ...DO NOT LIE DOWN!
