A year ago, I had only recently had my cardiac ablation procedure. I was feeling good: being a-fib-free for the first time in months will do that to you!
Now, a year later, I have good news: the ablation seems to have exceeded expectations; this winter, I shoveled snow, wrestled the snowblower around; once the snow melted, I recently mowed the lawn, went bowling (152 and 172), and did a host of things I hadn't been able to do in years.
Thanks to the advances in cardiac knowledge and technology that your support has funded, I finally know what it feels like to be in my 50's. (Yup; thanks to a-fib, I'd skipped right from my 40's to my 80's. The ablation has me feeling thirty years younger than I did in January of '21.) For that, I thank the docs who worked on me, their entire support teams, and I also thank you.
So I am, once again this year, asking for your support of the American Heart Association. I doubt that we can end heart disease this year, but with your help, we can make progress!
Thank you, and stay heart-healthy!
