She’s quiet and patient and snowy
Hidden in the light white sky
Snow’s happy when playful
Cries when snow melts by the sun
Older so she blows the wind
And giving snow to the world
Cools down and painting the world
And messing around with her hand
Brings a snow storm when she meets her grandparents
And returns when spring comes

Q. I’ve heard the term “shock” a million times, but I realized that I don’t really know what it means. What is shock?
Shock is a condition in which blood pressure is too low and not enough oxygenated blood can sustain your body.
The medical disorder of shock is not the “shock” that people feel from a sudden traumatic event. In the United States, hospital emergency departments report more than one million cases of shock each year.

Elinor LaDue doesn’t sing rock ‘n’ roll but does have at least one thing in common with Mick Jagger, frontman for the Rolling Stones.
She and Jagger both had a non-surgical heart procedure to implant an artificial aortic valve, replacing their original “native” valves.

TAVR is a non-surgical alternative for patients with advanced aortic stenosis or narrowing of the aortic valve opening.

Insomnious nights - handcuffed

The monster in your chest is unruly,
He claws, and he roars,
And he traipses around
And he acts like he
owns your body.
You feel like you’re running and spinning,
But you’re not,
You’re just simply sitting.
Whether lies, fears, rumors,
will soon become tumors
that plant in your stomach and
Like a vine that is creeping
to your soul it is seeping
the anxiety now becomes a part.
Soon it controls you
and that monster does own you
and to fix it …
You don’t know where to start.
