February was a busy month – a month filled with love – as we celebrated Valentine’s Day.
And, a month reminding us how important it is to take care of our hearts – not just emotionally, but physically – during American Heart Month.
For me, heart health is not something I take lightly and something we should all have on our radar all year round.
My father suffered from Congestive Heart Failure (CHF) – he had several operations that involved stents to keep his arteries open. And, eventually he had to undergo a triple bypass heart surgery – it was a very long road to recovery. It was difficult enough to see him suffer at the hospital, even when he had around-the-clock care, but even more heartbreaking when we experienced it as his caregivers at home.
I, myself, had my own heart concerns.
