Love You Grandma

I wanted to let you know that I’m going to be blogging less over the next several days. This post doesn’t have anything to do with deals.

Yesterday my beautiful grandmother MaryAnn Fox died. I got the call at 12:30 when I was having lunch with my daughter and her friend after dance class. The news was a total shock to everyone, she hadn’t been ill. She drove herself to work (she ran the gift shop at John C. Lincoln hospital), was sitting at her desk signing checks, and fell over. The doctors were unable to revive her.

It is so hard to lose a loved one, and I hate that we didn’t get to say goodbye. My grandmother leaves behind her husband, four wonderful children, a dozen grandchildren, two great grandchildren, and many, many friends. She loved her family so much and we will all miss her terribly. She had such a wonderful heart and never forgot a birthday even once.

Our family feels so blessed that we got to spend so much time with her this summer. In just the past several weeks we got together five or six times…very unusual for our family but wonderful.  I grew up with her close by and we talked just about every day when I was a child. I graduated early from ASU and instead of signing a full year lease I lived with my grandparents for a semester.  Mike and I were dating at the time and it was so wonderful for both of us to get to know them better.

Thank you so much to everyone for your prayers. It’s comforting to know grandma is up in heaven.

I think it’s worth mentioning that the heart attack signs for women can be very different than they are for men. You may not even feel chest pressure (as I don’t believe my grandmother did). My grandma read my blog every single day (it’s going to be so hard to take her e-mail off the list) and I wish so much I had posted this last week instead of today. Heart disease is the #1 killer of women, and knowledge can save your life. Check out the hard-to-recognize heart attack symptoms on goredforwomen.org:

“Well-known heart attack symptoms can include chest pain and radiating discomfort in the left arm. But, as Dr. Suzanne Steinbaum explains, there are several other ways your body may tell you when something isn’t quite right, potentially with your heart.

Read on for details on four silent heart attack symptoms that women should most definitely be aware of.

Shortness of breath

According to Steinbaum, director of The Heart and Vascular Institute at Lenox Hill Hospital in New York City, women often struggle to breathe a few weeks before experiencing a heart attack.

“If you are used to doing a certain amount of activity and then, all of a sudden, you can’t get enough air, that is when I get concerned,” says Steinbaum.

Back pain

Irregular pain in the lower or upper back can indicate stress to the heart muscle, Steinbaum says.

Jaw pain

“I had one patient who would feel her jaw start to hurt every time she got on a treadmill,” Steinbaum says. “But once she stopped, her jaw pain would go away. She went to a dentist, but there wasn’t anything wrong with her teeth.”

This discomfort continued until the woman experienced a heart attack. When she came into Steinbaum’s office after the event, it was evident that the jaw pain was directly linked to what was happening in her heart.

“Sometimes the heart isn’t able to give a good signal and, instead, the pain can radiate to the neck, jaw and back,” she says.

Nausea

Flu-like symptoms are often reported weeks and days before a heart attack.”

I love you Grandma!

I love Kohl’s. I really, really do. I love that you can use four codes together on the same item when you use your computer or laptop (only two on a mobile device sometimes, so I hope you have a computer you can use). Kohls is one store I almost always shop exclusively online. They have lots more in stock and if something doesn’t work, I can always take it back in the store close by. I get way more savings online. They have so much for your home like Keurigs and other appliances, Nike clothing, great back to school shoes, uniforms, toys, and LOTS MORE! Head over here to check out tons of codes (and use FOUR CODES TOGETHER)! You don’t need a Kohl’s charge for most of them!
