My story....Where to begin.  Right now I am at Washington Hospital center, where I have learned I have severe Pulmonary Hypertension.  It’s a pretty quiet night on unit 4NE.  Alone I’m room 2 listening to the humidafire that is hooked up to my O2.  I am laying in the dark wondering how life got so out of control. 

So what is pulmonary hypertension. It’s confusing and complicated. I will do my best to explain. The right side of the heart pumps blood to the lungs. It is not a strong muscle. The pressure from the artery and in the lungs are to high. Which cause the right side of the heart to work to hard so it is enlarged. 

My lifestyle is going to change. I’m many different aspects.  I’m going to be my friends and family for support. I hope I can count on all you my loved ones
