Blonde On The Prairie: The Blonde’s Favorite Things

December 14, 2012

I know I’m not Oprah. I’m just me. A humble mis-fit of a gal just trying to get by the best she can with what she has. This week, out of the blue I was forced into a situation that had me either wanting to jump (not for joy but off a cliff.) I felt like I had been stung by a billion bees when the news hit.

Having a healthy heart and knowing the signs of heart attack are always important, but more so during the holiday season.

Dr. JoEllen Kohlman-Petrick, an interventional cardiologist at the Sanford Heart Center in Fargo, warned that she sees more heart attacks during the fall and winter.
