To those affected by Hurricane Harvey - Keep fighting with HEART!
To all those who have been affected by Hurrican Harvey - Those who have been displaced and relocated, our First Responders on the ground and air who are tirelessly working around the clock to bring victims to safety, hospital staff caring for those who have been relocated and doubling up on patient intake, to those family members that are not with thier loved ones in Houston and volunteers from all across the states that are jumping in and assisting Houston, our hearts are with you.
As Mark and James have said, that not only is a natural disaster stressful in an of itself, for those with heart disease, or those caregivers caring for loved ones affected by heart disease, the situation can be overwhelming at best. Please know that even the strongest of heart need support, and we here at the AHA Patient Support Network are here for you. Patients, Caregivers, First Reponders, Cardiac Staff, Volunteers emotional support knows no boundries.
Please do reach out to us as we are all each others strength for the journey ahead. While we may not and cannot relate to the natural and physical devastation that you are all currently going through, we can, as survivors, understand the amount of perserverance, courage, faith and moxy it takes to overcome obstacles, namely heart disease.
A verse from a very common inspiration poem entitled "Don't Quit" comes to mind as you deal with the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey.
When things go wrong, as they sometimes will,
When the reoads you're trudging seem all uphill,
When the funds are low and debts are high,
And you want to smile but you have to sigh,
When care is pressing you down quite a bit,
REST if you must, but DON'T QUIT!
As Kimberly reminds us to focus on the good that comes from negativity and take one day at a time.
Keep fighting with HEART Houston!

It isn't all - a disaster!
This evening, I watched (TV) two rescuers in a boat, approach two dogs that were marooned on a porch as the floodwaters sped by. The rescuers quickly won the dogs trust and friendship and got them into the boat. They were two "tickled to death" dogs - one still a puppy! We were then shown the two dogs in a safe facility, having just been fed and their future secure. Don't give up! Get out on the porch!

Hurricanes have been affecting the northern side of the american states for over 5 decades. Every year a large number of citizens have to abandon and leave their homes to survive the hurricane and later live in shelters before they are granted another home to live in. This is very heart reckoning and sad as well.
