Why start a Heart Healthy site you may be asking?
Last year I got the call that no child wants to hear. Even a grown child.
“Your father is in the hospital and something is wrong with his heart.”
It turned out to be a problem with his blood pressure and medications. Once they leveled out the meds, the blood pressure came down and the heart palpitations stopped.
Walking around with high blood pressure isn’t good, but it’s better than the alternative.
About 3 years ago we had to take my mom to the hospital for heart surgery. She suffered from palpitations as well, but hers weren’t from medications and she needed surgery.
So it looks like my future includes some heart problems.
Not if I can help it!
