I am late updating, but I went to my followup appointment and got some good news. She confirmed that my EF is at 50%, and stated that it's my normal. I can live with that, and we will see if MY normal increase. I am motivated to be normal 55-60% and healthier than any point of my life. So I am eating live foods, and exercising at the gym to accomplish my goals. I can't stop, and I won't stop!!!!

Peripartum cardiomyopathy (a form of dilated cardiomyopathy)is a rare disorder in which a weakened heart is diagnosed within the final month of pregnancy or within 5 months after delivery. In the United States, ppcm complicates 1 in every 1,300 - 4,000 deliveries. It may occur in healthy childbearing women of any age. I happen to be one of those women effected by PPCM, and I hope that you enjoy reading my blog as it will contain my experience with PPCM as well as others things in my life.

Thank you Annette, just remember that you're here for a reason, and somehow this heart failure of ours is a blessing. I wish you the best of health!ReplyDelete
