Default Heart attacks - a laughing matter

When life throws curve balls at you, having something to laugh at can make it all the more bearable. My Mum had a heart attack yesterday (she is ok atm, she may need bypass though but fingers crossed she doesn't). My sister (K) and I went to visit her yesterday and my sister remarked:

K: Do you remember when I thought I was having a heart attack?
Me: No, what happened?
K: I had been having stabbing pains on and off, in my left side and right under my armpit. I went home and told my husband and he said quick lets go to the Dr. I said no let me have a shower first, I'd been at work all day and didn't want to go in stinky.
Me: Yeh I can understand that, although if I thought I was having a heart attack BO be damned I'd be off to the hospital.
K: Anyway, I went into the bathroom to have a shower and stripped off and what do ya know, the pain was gone. Turned out my underwire had broken and had been digging in!

my husband once woke me up in the middle of the night because he was having a heart attack. He was 29, played soccer competatively, and had no family history of heart trouble. We had been to a wedding the night before. I basically burped him and he was fine
