Vivaldi, Queen of Hearts


I really want to give a heartfelt thanks to kracken, amanda_02, sharona1x2, thereisnotable, uberprep, and ealinesse for offering hugs and comfort to me after I heard about my mom. It honestly meant a lot to me.

My mom did suffer a mild heart attack and was in the hospital for about a week while her doctor/employer (my mom is a medical secretary) ran a bunch of tests to check out the extent of the damage and the blockages. One of the veins in her heart has a 90% blockage, but thankfully is past where all the major branches branch off it, so all of the major parts of the heart are getting a full blood supply. And with medication there is the possibility that the blockage might lessen.

I'm still really worried about her though. My mom and I are so close. If anything ever happened to her, I don't know what I would do.

So now we're both changing our lifestyles to healthier ones. Since she had her heart attack before 55 I'm now at a greater risk for one myself. Plus, a bit of a healthier lifestyle would really be a good idea for me anyway.
