White House Reporter Who Live Tweeted Heart Attack, Blogs Recovery

Tommy Christopher, a White House reporter for Mediaite who gained notoriety for live tweeting his heart attack, is recovering and was kind enough to post a very in-depth update and look back on the experience (the photo and description of his chest incision and tubal insertion points is especially insightful).

I remember many years ago they suggested we send a journalist along with the Apollo astronauts  because the astronauts were not able to relate the impact of the experience into words and of course a skilled wordsmith could describe the sights, sounds, and emotions of the mission in a way the average reader could feel like they were onboard. Well, Tommy’s live tweeting and posts have eerily brought his followers along the very sobering and frightening journey through his unfortunate ailment. 

Tommy, we thank you for taking us along and we wish you a full and speedy recovery.
