Returning to independence thanks to Homecare

When I returned home from my hospital and swing bed experience, I was unable to walk 10 feet without recovering from being out of breath.

Heart attack while camping at Glacial Lake Campground

My wife and I were camping at Glacial Lakes State Park by Starbuck when I began having chest and arm pain. My wife called 911 and the ambulance EMTs were great. The support personnel at the park were a sheriff deputy, park ranger, and a camper who was an EMT. They were all very helpful.…
