:: My Brother David Had a Heart Attack ::
My brother David had a heart attack last night at 3:00 am. The doctors had to shock him six times to get his heart to start pumping again. He's in ICU right now. My husband and I prayed for him this morning. This is his second heart attack and I was told this time it almost killed him. Many members of my family suffer from obesity. I believe it's hereditary and it runs in our genes. My mother was obese though out most of my childhood and my grandmothers were both obese and 2 of my brothers are also obese. I worry about my children. So far my kids are not over weight but I know it can happen to them too, cause I was overweight throughout my childhood. Fighting fat is hard here in America where the food is sinful and deadly. I fight the battle of the bulge myself. If anyone should read this, say a prayer for my family. We are prone to being overweight. That's another reason I would like to go to med school, so I can better take care of my family's health problems. My husband and I both have to watch our weight. We both love to eat. I try to cook the more healthy green food, but my children will do almost anything to get sugar in their systems and I just can't seem to get my little Cammie to eat anything green. Summer and Carrigan will eat almost anything even green food, but they'll eat everything else that isn't good for them as well, and their grandma and grandpa love to buy them candy, but I think they are going to try to stop that.
