NOTE FROM CAROLYN: I wrote much more about these and other cardiac issues in my book, “A Woman’s Guide to Living with Heart Disease” . You can ask for it at your local bookshop, or order it online (paperback, hardcover or e-book) at Amazon. Or if you order it directly from my publisher, Johns Hopkins University Press (use the JHUP code HTWN), you will save 20% off the list price).
