Time in the ER, hospital waiting rooms

Despite what many thought when I was The McLeod County Chronicle editor, I do have a heart.
I proved it recently after a trip to the local emergency room that included a variety of heart tests. It included a video of my heart and, yes, it was beating.
Nagging pain between my shoulder blades rolled around to my chest recently, and even I (as a male) paid attention. It was not something I had experienced before, so I shocked my wife by suggesting we go to the hospital. It may be a heart attack.
