My story is a little bit of a roller coaster. On a brief note, a hobby I've had ever since I was little was a young child is photography. It is still a passion that I hold dear to my heart. This background picture and the previous picture are two of my first pictures I took. (I apologize about the blurriness, their quality was diminished through so many transfers to get it here.) Other hobbies of mine that have come to be, in a more recent history, include playing video games and taking care of my fur babies.
My plans for the future start in the beginning of the "roller coaster" I mentioned above. This gave me a very challenging past, and it makes me who I am today.
When I was 13, my mom had had her first heart attack. A week later she had another. Her second one was what they call a "widow maker". What this simply means is her heart was not circulating enough blood. Most of the people who have these heart attacks do not live. 3 of the veins in my mother's heart were so clogged with cholesterol that they were the size of a pen tip. The veins were suppose to be as wide as the body of the pen.
My mom was rushed into emergency open heart surgery, which they preformed triple bi-pass surgery. That was in March. For the next 6 months I took care of my mom. 9 months out from her bi-pass, her bi-pass failed. She had to have special stents made just for her, and monitor her incredibly closely.
Because of this, I formed a passion for taking care of people. It made me want to go in the medical field.
I then started attending High School at David Crockett.
