I just read this email from my Mom:
Well... Thanksgiving weekend was an eye opener for a lot of us. Had my annual checkup Friday and finally got the results of the heart murmur from last year. Seems I have a leaky value and have been referred to a cardiologist for a valve replacement. However, I do not have any of the symptoms described so hope to defer any treatment until necessary. My doctor says once the symptoms begin, I will have no choice.
It is the valve where the blood flows to the lungs so will experience shortness of breath, chest pains, swollen legs, and zero stamina. So far... I have none of those. Needless to say weight loss no longer is an option... as if it ever really was.
I see the cardiologist on Tuesday and will update everyone after that.
Um... Yeah... So how's your morning?
