Congestive Heart Failure

Last updated: May 2023

A week before Christmas 2022, I was in the hospital with congestive heart failure. The doctor basically gave me a death sentence. He had horrible bedside manners. I know I will live with this for the rest of my life, but it's not going to kill me right away. I have a life to live!

I started watching what I eat and worked with a trainer for two months or so to strengthen my heart. I had an echocardiogram yesterday (04/18/2023), and with all my hard work, my heart is pumping so much better now.
