Book: Grateful Guilt: Living in the Shadow of My Heart

  • What’s it like living with an expiration date?
  • You’ve had two heard transplants. Is that right?  Have you ever met the donor families?
  • How has your attitude affected your quality of life?
    • “There is only one attitude you allow yourself to have and that is gratitude.”
    • “You can't do battle and cry at the same time. It's impossible.”
    • “Maybe most important, be extra super polite to everyone who comes into your room, be it an office visit or a hospital stay. Make friends with everyone. If they like you, they will want to help me even more.”

“Pressing Health”- Health news that’s fresh off the press.
Sleep may be more important for your heart health than you think.  According to a new study published in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology found that participants who slept less than 6 hours a night had a 20% increased risk of having a heart attack.  Now before you go too sleep crazy, sleeping more than 9 hours a night can increase heart attack risk by 34%!  Researchers also found that if you have a high genetic risk for heart attacks, sleeping between 6 to 9 hours a night can decrease your chances of having a first heart attack by 18%.
