Happy Heart Day, my lovelies.
Welcome! Thanks for joining us! :)
cashew-butter asked: Hello there, fellow Zipper Club member!! I was born with Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy and I always get questions about it. It's been 10 years since my myectomy, and I'm still proud of my scar! :)
Hey there! So you’re one of those big hearted people, huh? :) I bet that pun NEVER gets old… It’s great to hear from you! Zippers for the win! :D
Just in case there are any congenital Whovians out there. ;)
immaplatypus asked: ok now I am crying adshkgldkshgdslghlds I'm sorry...I've just basically lived in this world where it feels odd seeing a chest without a scar or everyone around me in low-cut shirts or not having scar pain or anything...Just to know that there's someone else out there like me, it really is reassuring and touching. Blar I'll leave now *hides*
Oh my dear! I’m so glad you’ve found our little cardiac party over here! We’re everywhere! And, let’s be honest, we’re the coolest people. :) I know that feeling too- that awkward moment where somebody’s chest looks strangely lacking without any decoration in the middle. Those poor people. Here’s to scar pride! Get out there in your V-necks and your bikinis and wear that medal of honor loud and proud!
Today marks my 6 months since my OHS. I’m doing great and my pulmonary is super happy about life. I’m mailing my surgeon a thank you note and a container of chocolate frosting today because his assistant told me he secretly loves it. :)
xanaxteareblogged your photo:You were the coolest kid ever and have subsequently become the coolest adult ever. (If you are one idk) but yes. ALL THE AWARDS.
Hahaha! Thanks! xD I think I may have just been the meanest, though.
She gets a little blue in winter…
Anonymous asked: It's awesome to find someone who actually knows Pulmonary Atresia; I say it to people and get this blank expression, and I said "It's a heart condition" and I ALWAYS get "So you've had a heart attack?" ....-_- Or if I tell them I have angina they go "But you're not old..." - well done Sherlock. It's great to see someone else having a sense of humour about the rubbish that is palpitations and broken sternums! :D
Tell me about it- Microsoft word doesn’t even know how to spell it! I’m so glad you found me! Just in the time I’ve been running this blog, I’ve been amazed how many cardiac patients there are out there who know this stuff (and make these jokes!) that it’s so heart-warming (pun intended) to see that it’s really bringing us together! YAY for Pulmonary Atresia buddies!!
