Heart Healthy Diet
Sunday, September 19, 2010
This is my new focus for today: heart healthy diet. My husband has been in the hospital since Friday. He's having abdominal and chest pain. They are running a ton of tests and trying to figure out what's going on and not figuring out much. While he's there they have him on a heart healthy diet so we will be continuing that when he comes home. My husband tried very hard to convince me that he was on that diet just while he was in the hospital and that he didn't need to be on it when he came home... too bad. I really don't want him going to the hospital any more and I'm absolutely positive that all his issues were preventable with proper diet and exercise.
I don't think my husband understands how scared I am that he's going to have a heart attack or something else major and die. To lose the man who is everything I want and the father of two of my children and my partner in life.. not really something I could handle right now, or ever really. So we're going to do this together. I've been having frequent heart palpations lately and it has me spooked about my own health. This will be a much needed change in our life.
So today will be spent on studying a heart healthy diet. I'm thinking a visit to the local used book store might be needed.
Changes have to happen. They've been needed for a long time.
