Save a Heart

This is undoubtedly one of the most important blogs that I will write.

In 2005, I lost my husband, my partner, my friend, Elliott to Congestive Heart Failure. The story is very short. He went to the ER on March 19th complaining of shortness of breath; he was treated for bronchitis with Albuterol & Prelone and he was told to follow up with a cardiologist “when we get a chance” because his EKG showed evidence of an “old” heart attack.
