    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.

    - 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

    I've been taking an 81 mm each night for the last 18 months. I take it alongside of Anastrozole (cancer med)--per my oncologist's *advice*. Apparently, there's a 50/50 chance that 81 mm will increase the efficacy of the cancer med, but as my oncologist said, 'Even if aspirin doesn't improve the anastrozole's effectiveness for you, then taking an 81 mm each night is still good for your heart.'

    This month, I'm trying Bayer's '81 mm Women's Low Dose Aspirin with a Calcium Carbonate Buffer'. Before, I was using the enteric version of 81 mm.

    Also, thanks for posting the symptoms and the 'what to do' when you at the house protocol info--I didn't know any of that stuff.

    One Love, and PEACE
