  •  Dear IRITI, (8+ / 0-)

    I went back and read your diary about your brother's heart attack...and you mentioned that your father died of a heart attack when he was 53.

    This and your brother's heart attack lead me to ask you, please, please, please - would you and the rest of your family have your doctors look into whether there is some underlying reason for this?

    My naive thought is that you should at least check to see if you have a familial hypercholesterolemia...there are other conditions that might predispose you to such a thing.  Having this awful thing happen to your brother is bad enough-if it is a pointer to something that could be addressed and then it's missed, would be even more awful.

    Please feel free to email me at the address in my profile if you want.

    I'm so sorry for your loss.  I can't even begin to imagine how you must feel.  Please know that you're in my prayers tonight, however inadequate that is to say.
