Even though we all may not like Bernie Sanders, its hard not to feel bad about his heart attack and the surgery to have a stent implanted.
As Sanders was leaving for a cardiology appointment earlier this week he told a reporter how he should have listened to the warnings his body was giving him. The symptoms leading up to the heart attack were there, Bernie just wasn’t paying attention.
“But I’ll tell you one thing that I look forward to doing. I must confess that I was dumb,” Sanders told a reporter as he was leaving for a cardiology appointment. “I was born, and thank God, I have a lot of energy. And you know, during this campaign I have been doing in some cases three or four rallies a day running all over the state, Iowa, New Hampshire, wherever.”
“And yet, I in the last month or two just was more fatigued than I usually have been and I should have listened to those symptoms. I should have listened to those symptoms,” he continued. “So, if there is any message that I hope we can get out there, it is that I want people to pay attention to the symptoms. And you know, when you’re hurting, when you’re fatigued, when you have pain in your chest, listen to it.”
Bernie admits to being fatigued during his campaign, sometimes doing multiple rallies a day. That’s enough to wear down an average, healthy man.
In all reality, Bernie Sanders is 78 years old and his health issues make you think twice about voting for him. The likelihood of him even making it through the next couple of years is slim.
