Son home

October 28th, 2006 at 08:49 am

My son called in on the way home from hospital. He does have heart disease, an enlarged heart, arteries high tension not good for a 35 year old. This is a very big wake up call for him & his wife. He is lucky that he has got a chance to right his lifestyle now. Funny you can tell them but they will not listen, itsí not that he has being going to the hospital when he has had chest pain for years now. But it was righting its self before the ECG was taken, so they would send him home again. This time it didnít but did 12 hours later so doctors looked further this time.

After I went up the local shopping centre for a walk. I bought eggs and crackers that were on special so now I will have enough for a while. I went two thrift shops and bought some glass dishes one is the top of casserole that I use at times. And soup bowl that I can use for smaller serving of pasta when I have pasta now. I will be watching my diet more closely now too! I got a cookbook by one of my favorite author on beans & lentils. Saving $18.00 here.

    I'm glad your son is home and that he will mend his lifestyle. Good advice for most of us!

    Thankfully his wake up call came before something more serious!! 35 is so young for so many heart-related issues...I hope he is successful in turning it all around! {hug}

    I have a similar problem. About a year ago I followed my stepmom's advice and had my heart checked out. I had no symptoms but I do have an enlarged heart. It's now being treated, and making progress towards being better. I'm glad he found out now, before it got too much worse! BTW, I was 31 when I found out.
