Mended Hearts: Path to Recovery

By

Mended HeartsMended Hearts chapters offer camaraderie and support to those who have undergone heart procedures. Cape Girardeau's chapter meets at Southeast Missouri Hospital the second Tuesday of the month.

Volunteers from the organization visit patients in the hospital after their surgery.  I first met the local president, Lloyd Birk, when he visited me in the hospital a little over a month ago on the day I was being dismissed following quadruple bypass surgery. Tonight, I attended my first meeting and he introduced me to the lively group.

After touring one of Cape's newest medical facilities, Southeast Missouri Hospital's Cancer Center, the group gathered for heart healthy snacks and a short business meeting. Most meetings mix education with socializing. One upcoming meeting will feature a speaker who will explore the role of sodium in diet. Personnel from the Cardiac Rehab center at Southeast assist with the meetings.

Interested in joining? Contact me, ask your cardiologist, or phone the Cardiac Rehabilitation center at Southeast Hospital (573-331-7950). An outreach nurse from Cardiac Rehab will help you get into contact with the group. Check out their webpage HERE.

If you are looking for a foreclosure in Cape Girardeau, Perry, N. Scott, or Bollinger counties, I am the region's most experienced REO agent. As the area's ONLY Fannie Mae direct listing agent, I list more foreclosure properties than any other agent in this MLS. I am among the few local agents approved to both list and sell HUD properties. Give me a call if you are looking for help with the purchase of a foreclosure property.

If you want up-to-the-minute real estate information, the only way to get it is to have an agent set you up on auto-notify with immediate delivery. Your listing information will come directly from MLS only when it comes from an MLS member. You willl not have to wait for the information to roll to those other websites, and you will not have to check multiple sources. It's free, so why not give me a chance to help you in your search?

Is it okay for me to say that I hope I never have to join a Mended Hearts chapter? ; )  That being said, this sounds like a wonderful place to connect with others for support, learning and moving on....  Best wishes!

ABSOLUTELY, Brenda! I hope you never have a reason to join Mended Hearts. The reality, however, is that more people die of heart disease than any other factor, so keep an eye on yourself. The meeting was interesting, though I was much younger than most of the attendees. It was very reassuring to meet two men in their 80s who had their first heart surgeries when they were younger than I am now.

That would be reassuring, especially since you had a "big" procedure.  Yes, I have to keep an eye out on heart issues as they run in the family.  I'm glad you posted since you don't hear as much about female heart patients and its easy to be in denial. Have a great afternoon!
