Share whatever information you want us to know about you

54 yo female. Mom& caregiver to a 12 & 4 y.o! Recently moved to NC so the Duke docs cld 'fix' me. Had a massive heart attack 9/11/16 (no hx of hypertension,cholestrol, diabetes, etc.). Thought I was relatively healthy!! Since then I've had a valve replaced, pacemaker & defibrillator implanted. I'm STIlL in a state of disbelief (denial?). I went to ER initially for assumed food poisoning.... it took them HOURS to realize it was cardiac. It has been quite a journey this past year! ...and it's far from over!
