Lake Park Iowa
John, 11 years ago at age 60, I felt led to do a heart screening for $50. My diet was good, weight was good, blood test were good, felt good, walked 4 miles a day, plus farmed full time, not a reason at all to do the test.
Went and did the test, got a phone call to come back and do some more test. After a few more test, the test showed 3 aneurysms on my main aortic artery. Planting beans at the time. The results of the tests, the next morning at 6:30 open heart surgery. I had 3 widow makers, and the picture showed they were large. Took me a year to recover. Thankful to my son for taking over at the time.
I am very thankful for the test and surgery. Thankful to the Lord for each day.
