I’m not a medical physician nor do I have any extensive education on heart disease or congestive heart failure. I’m simply your everyday guy who found himself with a critical medical condition that if not treated correctly, could easily cost me my life. Congestive heart failure (CHF) is a very serious condition that shouldn’t be ignored. Honestly, I can say when I was first informed of my condition; I wasn’t’ concerned about who else was suffering from this condition or other people’s opinions. What was fresh in my mind was that my father died three months after being diagnosed with congestive heart failure. I know firsthand what a person experience when they are diagnosed and living with CHF. My objective with this book is not to only encourage you, but also share with you steps I took to improve my condition. Six months after being diagnosed with an ejection fraction of 30%, I received a surprising phone call from the RN who was responsible for monitoring my progress. She called me after my second echo Heart Scan test results and stated, “Mr. Westbrooks, I’m not sure what took place, but I’m happy to inform you that the Echocardiogram test results show that your heart’s ejection fraction improved tremendously and you’re no longer on our CHF monitoring program. My heart’s ejection fraction improved from 30% to 50%. No one was able to convince me that I would be able to do this.
