My best friend Irene - she had a heart attack at age 40, plus has Type 2 diabetes. She has peripheral artery disease, and all these conditions are inherited.
She was doing REALLY well this year...had some blood work done on Friday cause she felt ill (and her pee was DARK!) - the hospital called her in YESTERDAY because the bloodwork showed she had had ANOTHER heart attack.
She just turned 42 in June.
She is going for an echocardiogram today...and is trying to not cry, she is scared...hoping they don't have to put a stent in...
Also - she has quit smoking a million times, and is still trying...please pray for a miracle for her, that she will stop and that her health will improve.
