The day I survived three heart attacks started off quite normally. 

I ​didn't wake up that morning soaked in a forewarning sweat. No 
psychic or evangelical street preacher stopped me that day to warn me of an upcoming catastrophe and recommend I ​head back home to spend the next twenty-four hours under the covers. I didn't have a sentimental instinct to give my mother an appreciative kiss on the cheek, or write a will doling out my meager possessions.
