Aberration meaning a characteristic that deviates from the normal type.
If you've known me my whole life, I bet you will say I've never been "normal" (ha!) but in this situation I've never been happier to hear my doctor say I am not the expected scenario for someone with HF & DCM (Dilated Cardiomyopathy) (Based off my medical records, you would think I couldn't get out of bed… EF: 25 LVIDD: 6.8)
With this comes the reality that eventually (whether it's 5, 10, 15 years from now- who knows?) I will start developing symptoms to my disease and I will fall into the normal categoryUntil then, I will continue to THRIVE and live my best days with my family, friends and all of those I love dearly.
I would like to invite you all to walk WITH me on August 21st for the Central Ohio Heart Walk at McPherson Commons as part of Ali's Avengers. (The actual walk is back in action and I know it will be one to remember!)
Although I haven't had tremendous progress on my medical charts over the last year, I am blessed with a body that allows me to perform at my best and continues to push through any setbacks. I am forever grateful for the contributions from family and friends to help towards the medical advances that have helped myself and many others with HF/DCM.
If you are not local- you can virtually join my team. We can set up a ZOOM chat during the walk so everyone can feel together ;)
Thank you from the bottom of my (very enlarged) heart.
Pun intended. ;)
Hope to see you all there!
Love you all!
