Mon, Feb 4 12:27am · Travelogue about a visit to the HCM Clinic at Mayo Clinic - Rochester in Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy (HCM)

This is fantastic…thank you so much for doing all of this….

Sun, Feb 3 11:35pm · Living with Parkinson's Disease - Meet others & come say hi in Parkinson's Disease

Each person is different, but my advice is the sooner the better and be prepared for people to give you suggestions and tips and stories about others with Parkinson's. They want to help…at least that is my opinion. Don't take offense. My son who is in his 60's has it, but he doesn't seem to want to get involved with a group and seems to want to do it all himself. I think that is a mistake, but I have to respect his wishes. Perhaps I would feel the same way….My best to you.

My only symptoms were heart palpitations and starting to black out which I never did…My heart doctor upped my metoprolol to two 50mg plus 5mg Lisinipril in the morning and one 50mg metoprolol at night plus I have to make sure that I drink plenty of water as that seems to make a difference…I am 82

Nov 5, 2018 · Life: How do you not let a brain tumor take over your life? in Brain Tumor

I have a niece who is in her late 40's that has had multiple brain surgeries/treatment since a child and still doing well…also a friend in her 80's just diagnosed with brain tumor cancer and is doing well with some on going treatment…This is in Washington state and Oregon. There is hope. You need to talk with someone..this waiting by yourself is too hard on a person. I don't know their particulars, but wanted to give you encouragement.

Just curious…how old is your husband?

Jun 14, 2018 · High Calcium Score and PCSK9 in Heart & Blood Health

I have been on Simvastatin 40mg for several years without any side effects. My heart doctor says the statins have almost put him out of business! Meaning they work so well…I do have a blood test each year. I understand there are several brands and some don't work and/or can cause problems, but working with your doctor should ease your mind…
