Go Red

I had the honor of attending the OKC Go Red Luncheon with Misty and some friends. Misty, my oldest daughter, is a Primary Care Physician and heavily envolved in many aspects of the medical community. The heart association is special to her for several reasons.

Today, I posted on the Caringbridge page of this blog about my research to better understand the relationship of body and food. I thought I ate health with a few exceptions. Turns out you can be eating in what is considered a generally health way and it not be good for you. I found after much reading a way to eat that is now called green eating. I attended a class about eating healthy . This was also the subject the keynote speaker presented. It was a great reminder for me.

This year one of Misty’s patients was a special guest. She survived a sroke with amazing recovery because she got help quickly. She shared her story with the group. Misty provided some extra information. You can see them here.

Heart disease touchs most families at one time or another. Most of my ancesters died from some form of heart disease. My husband had a stent inserted in 2002 and quadruple bypass in 2014. He is currently being tested due to some minor symtoms he has been having.

I have not only lived many chapters in one life, but many lives in one body. The person I am today is far wiser than the me of young adulthood. My life is like your life with its ebb and flow. We are all connected in some way. I am a wife, mother, and grandmother, but what makes me, well, me is the way I wife, mother, and grandmother. I am a liver transplant survivor. Whatever devastation you have survived, we survived in our individual ways. I create with words and photos. I am a writer and photographer.
