Cardiomy-empathy

Did you know that when you have heart failure, your heart gets bigger? I always thought that was interesting. What happens is the pumping ability of your heart becomes inefficient. The two sides of your heart do not beat in sync with each other, and as a result, the amount of blood that is pumped out of your heart is diminished. This is heart failure.

I guess growing up with Dr. Seuss, I always thought it was the Grinches of the world who were sick. After all, his heart was two sizes too small. It's the big things that are supposed to be healthy and the little things that are supposed to be dying. Babies become fat and chubby. Flowers wilt.

Not true for the heart.

When the Grinch learned the true spirit of Christmas, his heart grew three sizes that day. But the Grinch wasn't loved up. He was dying.

Let that be a lesson to all of you big-hearted daters out there.

Ah, I haven't gone through a recent break-up but I'm getting quite cynical.

Ergo, I wholeheartedly agree with this sentiment.

Hugs for you Sarah. I know what you're saying (although I am thankful that I can't relate to it at the moment).

This definitely made me laugh this morning, and amid all the dreary weather, I'd consider that an accomplishment :)

So I just found your blog today and I effing love it! You crack my ass up. Funny & true at the same time. Now I have to get back to not working and reading what you got in your archives.

Thinking of big hearts failing, I immediately thought of the movie, "Untamed Heart" with my once-upon-a-time crush Christian Slater!

They say that depression kills the heart, too - literally.
