Lessons Learned As A Patient By Paul Collins

June 7th I entered the ER (emergency room) at our nearest hospital.  I came home on the 9th.  I had symptoms resembling a heart attack.  It was not a heart attack.  Due to extreme shortness of breath, I was barely able to make the short trip home.  I returned to the ER on the 13th and they discovered a large blood clot in my left lung.  I was released on the 15th.
