My heart attack happened so suddenly, if I hadn’t been in the hospital on bed rest – help wouldn’t have reached me in time. Not only was I in a hospital, but a great hospital with a fantastic staff who sprang into action to save my life. I owe my life to the wonderful people at Wheaton Franciscan – St. Joseph especially Dr. Husam Balkhy, Dr. Margaret Carr and Dr. Richard Wakefield
Having a good relationship with your doctor can be one of the best ways to keep your heart healthy.
If you haven’t visited in a while, make an appointment to have your blood pressure, blood sugar, and cholesterol checked. Have a chat about your family history and your risk of heart disease. Go ahead, find out – that would be a great anniversary gift!
Wishing us both good health in the next ten years –
