Tom Henry: My heart artery was 100 percent blocked. Now, I feel 100 percent better.

When Tom Henry started to feel intense pain in his chest and left arm, he knew something was wrong. He also knew his local Baylor Scott & White Medical Center was the place to go for help. At the hospital, doctors confirmed Tom was having a heart attack, and one of his arteries was 100 percent blocked. As he underwent an angioplasty and stent placement to open the artery, his medical team helped him feel comfortable through every step. “The team in the cath lab was very reassuring and personal. It made me feel safe.” Today, Tom says he has a deeper appreciation for life. As a reminder, he carries a heart packet with him that contains symbols of his family and his health. He’s also adopted a more heart-healthy lifestyle. “I’m feeling 100 percent. Period.”
