  • Mr. Aruba had a heart attack

    I spoke with fellow Team Thug member Mike Dechicco this morning, after learning he had a heart attack last Thursday.



    He was having neck pain in Atlanta and it got progressively worse when he got home, leading to chest pain. He went to hospital Thursday and an enzyme test showed he had a Heart Attack, and EKG showed 100% blockage. He had a metal stent put in and will be released tomorrow. He says he's feeling better but will have to take it easy for a month.

    Here'e to wishing him a speedy recovery.

      Thanks for the update. Knew about the heart attack and expressed my joy in his survival. Always interested in hearing about the warnings signs. Never know whose life that knowledge can save - including your own!

          Sounds like Mike may have remembered how I was stubborn (wifes a nurse) and waited to long and bit the dust. Got lucky and cpr brought me back and made it to surgery. First words Doc said-your one lucky man. Lot slower healing process when you do more damage. Go Mike

            I talked to Mike yesterday and he's feeling pretty good. He's very lucky, probably had the heart attack a week before he went to the doctor. The doctor did an ekg and sent him to the hospital right away by squad.
            He was working on his car, changing the oil, therapy!
