From the description, it sounded like a heart attack.
I'm glad he's ok and everything worked out.
Apparently Disney magic trumps biology!!

Thank you!

I love the pictures around the Yacht Club. I think I like the decor there better than the Beach Club.
Thanks Both resorts are lovely and while I prefer the scent of the BC, overall I prefer the YC.

Yes he saw a specialist and had the full battery of tests. (between all the tests he and Caitlin have had lately I can't keep track of who had what) The tech who did the stress test told him he scored like a healthy 27 yr old would I tried to tell the story just as we experienced it but when I was done I had a good cry. It was terrifying and after the tests came back it was scary to think what could have happened.

I am very relieved that his is OK now. Are they certain he actually had a heart attack or do they just think his symptoms sounded like a heart attack? Did he have permanent changes to his EKG. Bottom line is he's OK. But phew. Too scary. Get that baby Aspirin going!

Wow - I'm so glad he's ok!

I'm a nurse on a cardiac unit and as I was reading your report, I thought it for sure sounded like a heart attack. Once you said the inhaler worked, I was think "nah maybe not." That's terrifying. I'm surprised as well no one came over and offered to ask if everything was ok. Strange. So fortunate it wasn't extremely severe and he jumped back to normal!

I sure hope any more drama isn't quite as serious...yikes!

Thank you. They believe it was a heart attack but they did not have a previous EKG to compare it to.

Wow! That must have been scary, Like some PP's have said, I thought it was sounding like a heart attack but then figured it wasn't because the inhaler made him feel better. So Glad Dale is OK!

Thank you. It was pretty scary!
There is plenty more drama but it isn't quite as serious

When the inhaler worked I thought it was just a bad asthma attack. I even thought perhaps he had an allergy to one of the spices in the margarita.

Thank you!

Wow ... that's just terrifying...

I wasn't sure if it was a heart attack ... just because Dale seemed to rally after that episode... and I'm assuming that you were able to continue your vacation after that...

(I'm sorry nobody came to your assistance... )

I didn't realize that you could have a heart attack and still be able to just kind of keep going...

I'll bet you were really shocked when you got home and found out...

I'm sure this will be a very special Thanksgiving for you...
