Thank you from Dick Scherpenisse
We wish to thank everyone who sent cards, called and for your prayers during my recent hospital stay. No one knows why a blood test showed I had had a heart attack. When the cardiologist finished the heart cath he told Anita it was an awesome outcome.
I hadn't had a heart attack. No arteries were blocked and there was no need for any stents. I think it may be related to my second vaccine shot but again no one knows if that could be.
