Its been one Heart of a year!!

in health •  last month

2018 has been all about the heart for the Brockman Family. Most of you are aware that my youngest son @sidewayzs13 had open heart surgery this summer. Most people take the heart for granted and really don't pay it any attention until it's broke.

Of course this is how most things are, we tend to only focus on the broken instead of focusing on how not to brake it. This year has given me a new outlook on life and made me realize that being pro-active is alot easier than being re-active.

So Codey and I where talking and he said "dad I like the gimme 5 post about silver, you should do a gimme 5 about hearts" now this kinda made me pause for a moment. I Thought to myself, what an awesome idea. Now I tried to get him to do a post about it, but he wasn't ready yet.

So here we go, your 5 facts about the heart.

My brother in law just turned 40 and had a heart attack a few months ago.

I should do a similar post as Ive learned a few good facts about heart atracks that I think are key to share. Thanks for the info and sharing!

I know the Monday after we change the clocks forward is also very high for heart attacks due to lack of sleep

Intresting Mr. Warn. But I can see it

The worst is behind and now it's time to heal and get on with living. I was devistated for you when you told us all, no father should ever have to go through that for a child. Glad he's on the mend and look forward to more of his blogs.

How's that car you got got him??

No official tickets yet! Lots of dad tickets. Life 360 app is awesome 😉. Thanks Welsh

Hope @sidewayzs13 is recovering well. It's good to be proactive and I bet this post will make a bunch of people stop and think.

Great post @raybrockman! Glad that your son is doing better, very tough for the family. As a survivor of "The Widowmaker" with zero damage to my heart afterward, I can fully appreciate being proactive. My cardiologist said that I should have played the lottery that day. Most people don't survive, but nearly no one makes it out with no permanent damage. My BP was 25/0 when they started cutting.
