Francisco Moita Flores suffered a heart attack during an autograph signing at the Book Fair.on Sunday 11 and had to be rushed to the hospital where he was operated on.

The 69-year-old former police inspector and writer, born in Moura, Alentejo, has undergone a complex intervention in the Santa Marta hospital but is recovering.

Two weeks later Francisco Moita Flores left an impressive record of what those days were like.how it was face to face with death and how he deceived her. The former inspector is still in the hospital and is now even more aware that the joys of life should not be missed, but with moderation and restrictions. But there is nothing better than the words of Moita Flores himself:

“Usually I do not use the space given to me to talk on topics that are common to everyone, and use it to my advantage. I thought before doing this and decided to write to you. There were so many messages, so many expressions of affection, good wishesthat it would be unfair of me to remain indifferent to the tender testimonies of my readers. I want to thank you for your solidarity, and I am sure that it was your collective efforts that contributed to returned from a very difficult state of health to be among you.

Myocardial infarction is tricky, but not unfair. This is a black card of death, although it can be turned into a path of light back to life. I went through all of these states this week. I was close to death. I saw the return of the sun. I realized that a heart attack is not so insidious. Being bad is a translation of many good things: snack pleasure, cigarettes in a set of pleasures that taste good but end up being very bad. I am still in the hospital unaware of my return to active life, but dear reader, let me share with you the lesson my heart attack taught me: enjoy the pleasures that life gives us, but impose limits. Don’t make religion out of cigarettes. Not even alcohol. Not from a good table. Enjoy life with rules. You can be happy without frills that I am, at this moment, without frills, I am struggling to come back to life and get rid of the threat of death that a heart attack initiates.. So I leave you a hug of gratitude. Until next week.”
