Sharing something important to our heart

This is a bit different post but it contains a message we all need to know about. A dear friend sent this to me and I want to share the information with all of you. It could someday save your life or that of a loved one.

Heart attack info NEW ASPIRIN/ Serious stuff, no joke!!
Just a reminder to all: purchase a box, keep one in your car,
pocketbook, wallet, bedside, etc.

Important to know.
Next time you go to the store buy several bottles of the new crystal aspirin---- put one in your purse, night stand, medicine chest, car glove box, wrap two aspirin in saran wrap and put in your wallet, any place you can think of and read the rest of this e-mail
This is good info. We did not know that you should not lie down while waiting for the EMT


Something that we can do to help ourselves. Nice to know.
Bayer is making crystal aspirin to dissolve under the tongue. They work much faster than the tablets.

Why keep aspirin by your bedside?
About Heart Attacks

There are other symptoms of an 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

- say "heart attack!"
- say that you have taken 2 aspirins..
- phone a neighbor or a family member who lives very close by
- take a seat on a chair or sofa near the front door, and wait for their arrival and...
~ DO NOT lie down


  1. Good Info, Elaine, I'll pass it on, Hugs, Marilou

  2. Hi Elaine, Thanks for stopping by my blog. I want to thank you for sharing about Bayer Crystals. I wouldn't have known that and I didn't know about the sitting up. I would think that one of the many doctors my hubby sees that one of them would have told me that. His heart attacks have all been silent, which is the worse kind. I loved your pictures of the puppies in a previous post. Have a great day. A Missouri Friend.

  3. Thank you for sharing this info with us.
    I did not know some of the things in there.
    I will have to get some of them for my hubby.
    Have a great day

  4. I have heard about this and bought some - right by my bed and in my purse! Thanks for sharing.


  5. Excellent advice Elaine. Thank you for sharing.
