The first time my dad had a heart attack was terrifying. Little did I know that by now he'd have had another 2 heart attacks and be living with us full time. I want him to stay healthy for as long as possible, so he can see my kids grow up. I've become quite the expert on managing heart disease at home, including all his medications and the diet he needs to keep to. Additionally we have become familiar with our local hospital's emergency department, as you need to know when to bring him in and when to monitor at home. This blog is about caring for heart patients.
