Here’s to Health

Venture here at your own will. This health discussion will be somewhat myoptic. I’ll be writing about health issues that are near and dear to me. My perspective is built on experiences I’ve had with health either in taking care of my loved ones, or coping with conditions myself. These notes are intended to convey the experience of an illness, as well as what I’ve found in the literature about those issues. They include

  • Total knee replacement
  • Factor V Leiden
  • DVT and PE: my Costa Rican holiday
  • Caring for our elders
  • Auntie K and Alzheimer
  • Parent care
  • Cancer and hospice
  • Heart failure and hospice
  • Medical marijuana
  • Nutrition: The Baby Ruth Diet
