First of all, Judy-girl, I am so relieved to know that you didn't have any blockage in your arteries! It sounds like a harrowing week and thank God your SO, nephew and sister all were responsive and jumped in to help.
I had just read that article in the New York Times about unnecessary heart procedures in Florida whe Susan posted about your second diagnosis which found no blockage.
Knowing you, you WIll get to the bottom of it and if there is a scam, you will try to keep others from being scammed.
So glad you're okay and back with your Zoo friends.
