Woman Says Apple Watch Saved Her Life: Heart Rate Spike Led Doctors to Blocked 'Widowmaker' Artery

Western Journal

Published

on

Diane Feenstra of Norton Shores, Michigan, had a close brush with death earlier this year, but thanks to a gadget she received for her birthday, she’s here to tell the tale and warn other women of the lesser-known symptoms of a heart attack.

On the whole, Feenstra is a pretty healthy woman. She takes care of herself — but she also ignored warning signs.

At first it was odd little health issues here and there that Feenstra brushed off, always finding some benign thing to attribute aches and pains to.

“I had pain going down my left hand, I had a little swelling in my left foot, I had indigestion and I just explained away as acid reflux that I might have picked up later in life,” she told WZZM-TV.

“And the biggest thing was pain in my neck and shoulder and I figured I vacuumed and put my muscles out of whack somehow.”



But on April 22, she happened to glance at her Apple Watch and was alarmed by what she saw.

“Well on the day in question which was April 22, I had a 169 beats per minute rate even though the most vigorous exercise I had done was to walk up stairs, which was 12 steps,” she recalled. “So I called my husband, who was at work, and said ‘Do you think this is concerning?’ And he said ‘Call your doctor.'”

A visit to the local urgent care and an EKG later and the doctor gave her four baby aspirin and told her to chew them immediately, and then sent her to Meijer Heart Center.

After testing, the cardiologist told Feenstra that not only had she unknowingly suffered a recent heart attack, but she was poised to experience a “widowmaker” heart attack because her left anterior descending artery had a blockage.

At first, Feenstra couldn’t believe it, but then as she thought back on her symptoms and the fact that her older sister died of a heart attack, it started to make some sense.

“I exercise, I eat right, Gary and I drink green drink almost every day at noon that I make in our Vitamix with kale and all kinds of great nutrients, and I truthfully thought ‘This is a mistake, it can’t be,'” she said.

But it was. Thankfully, the doctors were able to intervene in time and placed a stent in the artery.

“Were it not for the fact that I had that 169 beats per minute for a period of time, I wouldn’t probably be here today,” Feenstra admitted to “Today.” “Seeing it on my watch told me you have something going that you need to investigate now.”

“I think God used that watch to alert me to the fact that my heart wasn’t functioning properly.”

Now she wants other women who experience similar symptoms to take them seriously.

“Listen to your body and do not take for granted the fact that little symptoms like a feeling of heartburn or pain that goes down your arm or into your neck or back or sometimes it’s in the jaw, don’t think to yourself, ‘Oh there are other explanations, I won’t worry about it,'” she said.

“It doesn’t pay to explain it away and not go for help.”

Graphic Warning: Horrified Crowd Shouts as Parent Shows School's Pedophilia Comics at Board Meeting

Western Journal

Published

on

It appears Fairfax County Public Schools in Virginia has been disseminating pedophilic pornography to its students.

As much was revealed by author and former journalist for The Wall Street Journal Asra Nomani, who attended a local Fairfax County School Board meeting Thursday night.

During the meeting, Fairfax High School mother Stacy Langton brought two books up to the podium, along with printouts of some of their pages. The books were “Lawn Boy” by Jonathan Evison and “Gender Queer” by Maia Kobabe.

Langton said she found the books in the high school library, the Robinson Secondary School library and at others across the county.

“The books were available, and we checked them out,” the mother said, according to Nomani’s report.

Nomani recorded the school board meeting, as well as the contents of the books, in a video posted to her Twitter.

Given the incredibly pornographic nature of the images (comic-style pictures showing individuals performing sex acts on one another), we will not embed the video in this story.

If you do wish to see how truly horrific the content is, you can view Nomani’s video here.

The books don’t just show any kind of pornography, however.

They appear to show drawings of child pornography by depicting acts of pedophilia.

One book even includes a “fourth-grade boy performing oral sex on an adult male,” Nomani reported.

In “Lawn Boy,” the author describes performing such an act for the first time at the age of 10.

This is the type of material a pedophile would use to groom his victims, making them read it as a way of normalizing explicit sex acts.

And the Fairfax County school district allegedly made these books available to “minors as young as seventh grade, or as young as 12 years old.”

The school board chair, Stella Pekarsky, attempted to defend the inclusion by claiming one of the schools they were found at was made up of “high school students.”

Nomani noted in her report that Robinson Secondary School, where Langton said the books were also available, “includes seventh and eighth graders.”

Either way, it likely doesn’t make parents feel much better knowing that their high school children may have been and possibly continue to be exposed to this horrific content.

According to WRC-TV, Fairfax County Public Schools said it would temporarily remove the books from the library. At a later date, they will be reviewed by a committee of students, staff and parents for a final decision.

For years, conservatives have been saying that the sexual-freedom-movement left’s ultimate goal is to sexualize children and they’ve been called crackpots for saying so.

Well, who are the crackpots now?

Stories continue to break revealing content developed and written by pro-LGBT authors such as this being disseminated to young children.

Minnesota’s Richfield Public Schools district was also caught this week using a sexual education program that has children role-play as sexually active gay teenagers deciding whether or not they want to have sex.

Modern-day leftists have taken over the public school system.

And, if you let them, they’ll use that power to sexualize America’s children with pedophile-esque grooming techniques.

Additionally, Ayyadurai reported there were 1,771 envelopes with no signatures and 2,580 with scribbles for the signature.

By the official count, President Joe Biden won the Grand Canyon State in November’s general election by 10,457 votes.

The only county he flipped from red to blue to do so was Maricopa, the state’s most populous, encompassing the Phoenix metropolitan area.



Former President Donald Trump carried the county by approximately 44,500 votes in 2016 and Biden won it by 45,100 in 2020.
