It was 9 months ago today that my life took a dramatic change. On the evening of October 1st 2012 I went into congestive heart failure and by October 2nd, it was the start of many nights away from home in the ER and hospital. Once they finally diagnosed the CHF, I was told on average 9 months was the survival rate. Then I went back into failure and mom was sure this day would never come but here I am and I'm actually doing pretty well. I won't say the road was easy because the first month was the worst anyone could imagine and then it took a few more months before they diagnosed the pulmonary hypertension. Since then, the road has been much smoother with only a few minor bumps.
