Thanks Haylen
The majority of my family has died of heart or stroke before they reach 70. My sister had a major heart attack at 48. The left chanber of my heart is enlarged and I become short of breath walking up hills. In addition my legs feet and ankles are swollen all the time. None of the doctors--GP, Endocrinologist and Neurologist have been able to determine what is causing it. Looks like we may have found the answer. With all the health problems I am lucky to still be here. I guess the lord is not ready for me yet and the devil afraid I will take over.

Thanks again Haylen
