After 30 years of wedded arranged marriage bliss to Dr. Santosh Pandit, my ‘fireside conversations’ with him has convinced me that there is much more to cardiology care than any doctor can possibly cover in the average fifteen minute consultation.

The personal experience of having taken care of my father with Congestive Heart Failure more than 10 years ago left me helpless in understanding and knowing how to help him.  Today I know more that I certainly wish I knew back then.

So I embark on my personal adventure to address that somewhat overwhelming world of cardiac education and I like presenting in plain English!  I welcome questions to clarify what I present here in my blog.

Behind every Doctor’s white coat façade churns a world of untapped education  that the layperson or would be patient needs to hear in pure unadulterated everyday language. That’s my mission to let you know of the insights thatI have garnered and the mysteries that I can uncover for you about the “perils of the heart.”

These are some of the things from my “fireside” conversations that I will writeabout that have practical implications.

  • Laughter

  • Fresh Air
  • Sunshine
