The picture of me in the hospital if from my operation, early 2017 – and no re-admission since
Healthy eating is a good idea for everyone but it is even more important for people living with a heart pump.
My pump is the Left Ventricular Assist Device or LVAD. It is the latest, Heartmate3 by Thoratec (now Abbott). So far, it’s proven to be the best in its class. I have to follow a good Heart Failure nutrition therapy which primarily involved - Limiting my salt intake and Restricting the amount of fluid I take in.
I am really stoked today. So inspired! Yesterday, my good friend Modou ran the Dakar Marathon at home (Senegal). Un vrai Jambar. And today I have a few friends who are running the B.A.A. Boston Marathon.
My boy and I along with my good friend, Bool, were at the Finish line to cheer them on!
