    One of our community members has shared his personal story in this month's issue of WebMD the Magazine. Click the link below to read about his triple bypass, recovery and "life lessons" quotes:

    WebMD the Magazine's My Story: Cardiac Recovery
    A reader's personal cardiac comeback story.

    If the member would like to identify himself here, feel free! (you can remain "anon", of course) A big thank you for sharing. It's an understatement to say that you are a "heart health" inspiration!

    He already "exposed" himself in one of the threads.

    Thanks Bill!

    You know I'm laughing at that phrase - I like "identify" better - hahah!

    Actually, aware of my story, an editor for the magazine requested permission to use it in the magazine. That was followed by a phone interview, and the summary you see as the article.

    There is way more detail in my profiles, tips, resources, and forum discussions than is contained in the short article.

    I myself am astounded at the fitness level my heart exhibits
