Important:Heart Disease
Posted by: Cynthia Radene Long on Jan 10 2014 11:41

Some of you know that I have heart disease. In May 2012, just two weeks after my 43rd birthday. After my doctors performed a few tests on my heart, they found out that I had mitral valve regurgitation (heart leakage at the mitral valve). I also had an artery in my heart had an 80% blockage.

Just over a year later (May 16, 2013), I underwent a Mitral Valve Replacement and single vessel Coronary Artery Bypass Graft. Since my open-heart surgery May 16, 2013, I feel much better. I still have CHF (Congestive Heart Failure) which will never go away. I will take heart medication for the rest of my life.

Heart disease runs in both maternal and paternal family. My maternal grandfather died at a young age after suffering a heart attack. My father had a seven vessel bypass graft in @2007. Do you know your families health history? I did not know that I had it until my MI (heart attack) on May 5, 2012.

Anyway, I feel better these days since having my surgery.

Family stories:Cindy Has Narcolepsy
Posted by: Cynthia Radene Long on Mar 13 2011 15:10

Doesn't this look familiar? This is called a sleep attack, and it"s the number one symptom of narcolepsy. Research has shown that a narcoleptic lacks a neurotransmitter called hypocretin or orexin in the brain. Hypocretin or orexin is the natural chemical in the brain responsible for maintaince of the the sleep/wake cycle and appetite.

It has not been determined if narcolepsy is a genetic disorder, but it is known to run in families. It has also been speculated that it may also be a disorder of the immune system.

Does anyone know of any other family members with narcolepsy, either diagnosed or suspected? I heard a story from my dad that it's possible that his father, Charles Thomas Long, may have had narcolepsy, as he was known to fall asleep at the kitchen table while eating or playing cards. Does anyone have anymore information about him?

I would love to hear any stories.
