The “Big Me” almost had the “Big One:”
Former President Bill Clinton today checked himself into New York Presbyterian Hospital where he will undergo heart bypass surgery in the next few days after complaining of shortness of breath and chest pains, his office said.
Mr. Clinton, 58, went to Northern Westchester Hospital on Thursday after he experienced “mild chest pains and shortness of breath,” his office said in a statement released to the news media.
Tests at that hospital were “normal,” his office said, and Mr. Clinton spent Thursday night at his home in Chappaqua, N.Y. But after additional tests today, his doctors advised bypass surgery, the statement said, although it did not indicate when the surgery would take place.
Heart attacks are just soooo sudden. It was only a few days ago I was watching him in some recent video footage and I thought to myself that he looked tanned, rested, and the best he has looked in years. He probably hates the fact he can not run again.
At any rate, I hope things go well- no family needs to go through this.
