Anatomy of a Sweet Heart

There’s a double meaning to that title. It’s the name of a blog about one person’s journey through heart disease, written by her husband. In other words, it’s a blog about his sweetheart’s “sweet heart.”

According to the about us page, the blogger’s name is Joe. He’s a writer, coach and music industry consultant. Three days before Christmas, his wife Lori, age 34, suffered a heart attack. Not just any heart attack either, but one from a rare heart defect that kills 80% of the people that have it. They have decided to spend the next year telling her story to let other folks know how important it is to, as Joe put it, “cherish your life and monitor your health.”

Not only that, they’re writing a book about it too. The blog will serve as a “running log of our research as well as updates on Lori’s recovery.”

I’ll be keeping a close eye on this blog and on Lori’s progress. I hope you will too.
