Mrs. Franklin-Jones,

One week ago, he was admitted from the emergency room to Cardiac Intensive Care with a diagnosis of acute myocardial infarction. She has recovered as expected and is being transferred to the cardiac unit.

Today is a step down unit. “I was really surprised when I got that bad pain in my chest!” she says to Nurse Julie Hernandez as she settles into her new room. I was aware that I had high blood pressure, but I didn’t believe it was that severe. I try to take my medication as prescribed by the clinic, but I occasionally forget. I suppose I should read the papers they gave me about what foods I should and should not eat. I’d better look after myself! Momma had high blood pressure, which killed her! Who knows, maybe I’ll have to learn to cook.

not what I was taught in Jamaica! I might have to delegate the cooking to Tomas. Since he lost his job, he has more time at home than I do. Between my shifts at the school cafeteria and my new housecleaning job, I don’t have much time. You are aware that my sister is traveling from Jamaica to see me. I believe she’s on her way to bring me some bush tea. That will put me right!”
