Patient name: Alex
CW: graphic description of open heart surgery, sibling loss, death + dying
In today’s episode, Alex talks about his experience with Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy, having open heart surgery at 16, almost dying a couple times, his work in assisted living, and—my favorite topic—death in our death phobic culture.
In the bonus episode he answers my Big Healthcare Question, and we talk about all of my arrhythmias and my own heart mysteries.
