This is going to be all over the place, hope you enjoy. To begin with, I was going to see my granddaughter this weekend; but, something came up with my daughter. Hey, at least when I retire, I will have more time to visit her and I read something very interesting.
CNN - Can heart attack damage be reversed? This is sort of amusing to me on a personal level; but, my answer is actually easy for me. I have had two heart attacks and they have left me with less stamina. Apparently, stem cells might now be capable of making me better and eliminating the damage done. I do not, did not have a bad heart. My heart attack was not caused by bad veins or blocked arteries. I have never been told that and they have spent an enormous amount of time testing me in ever conceivable way. My doctors have spared no expense in checking me out and have all cared deeply for me. My heart attacks were the result of very high blood pressure. Not unlike King Kong, it was tension killed the beast and me. LOL.
The article points out that my now damaged heart can be possibly be repaired using stem cells and the place where this can be done is close and knowing what I know, I could probably be allowed the procedure. This raises many fascinating questions for me. I know for a fact that my aorta and heart have received damage. I do not doubt that at all and my doctor and the specialists have assured me of the fact. No cure has been offered, nor is one expected to appear.
As far as I can understand, the article says that when you have a heart attack, you kill heart cells and never fully recover. You might get better; but, never regain what you had. I am much better than when I had my heart attacks; but, have not bounced back to what I was before they occurred. I know I will never get better and have no idea what a third heart attack would do to me. I need no stints nor bypasses, neither would help and eventually the blood pressure medication and other medications will indeed kill my organs. Still, I will not accept stem cell cures. I will not do it. All stem cell understanding came from killing babies. We would have come to the same conclusions if we hadn't killed babies; but that is how we got here. From a scientific position, new life, unique life begins at conception. To say otherwise is to disagree with basic science. I dare anyone to contradict me on this point.
