I watched my teacher friend,"Mark", have aheart attack yesterday.He texted me Help. Very sick. Library. When I arrived, Mark was sweating profusely. He was wired up to an EKG machine. Mark was promptly wheeled out by EMSand taken to the hospital.I assured him that I'd meet him in Emergencyand not to worry.
I took his cell phone and called his son. Without a car recently, I told Mark's son that I'd get his dad admitted to the hospital.
Mark's in ICU after heart surgery. He was looking forward to three job interviews this week for new teaching positions in Tampa, Tarpon Springs and St. Petersberg. Each university is highly interested in Mark.
Seeing my friend fall ill is a wake up call to modifyone's lifestyle. Mark played tennis occasionally withhis son, that being his only exercise. I doubt if his eating habits were very good.
Events like this motivate a person to make positive changes inhealth and relationships with family and God.
