Heart Attack -- and Water.

Tom's Journal.

I bought one more 'toy' that came in the mail today...  a Leatherman multi-tool.  I know that I sound foolish for a mature gentleman, but I noticed that the preacher man, Kevin Sullivan, had a cheaper version hanging on his belt last week or so, and I just had to keep up with him....Ha!  Aside from the well made needle nose pliers, and other functions, I wonder if my Swiss Army knives are just as good....hummmmm.  

Well, Tax season always bums me out this time of year, but we should be OK.  The old house I am trying to sell gives me stomach pains and worries, and I JUST WANT TO GET RID OF THAT PLACE IN WI, TO ELIMINATE THE BILL !!!   IT IS BECOMING  an albatross around my neck and beginning to stink! [if  you know the old sea tale.].  At least I have a professional on my side who will guide me soon so that I can take care of business. 

Have you ever known a person who was selfish and mean, to the extent where they refused to even share a good recipe with you??   I don't see what the logic would be unless they hated you...  aside from being a poor teacher   who never learned how to communicate with humans.  I thought that I always had the gift to gab and practised speech in high school, also got into sales a few times in my life.  It's also a good way to make friends for life!  Well, you all know how I feel about sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ, I hope.   All Christians are "ministers"  of sorts, and charged with the biblical education of their families and children !!! 
     It's like anything else -- you start out by taking one step at a time.   We found out that the Army had an effective way to teach people, and how to get their attention first.  When it comes down to a life and death situation, the Army knows that they need to be very effective in schooling the troops -- because just one man can get a lot of people killed if he makes one mistake!  So too, a Christian's TM [Technical Manual] is the Bible.   That fine Book is also referred to as "The Sword."  It takes practice to learn it well.

Below is something I thought was so important and new to me -- that I knew I needed to share it with my friends and readers TONIGHT !  Please Share it.

Warm Regards,
Tommy Schuckman

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. This 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 on Aspirin - PASS IT ON

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!

A Cardiologist has stated that if each person after receiving this e-mail, sends it to 10 people, probably one life could be saved!

I have already shared this information. What about you?

Do forward this message. It may save lives!

Please, Please take the time to listen, this will
open your eyes to how 'Islam' is and has in the

and college students to hate "Ameica"
