How we got here.

In 2019, our family experienced an unexpected and sudden health scare. Our two young children were home with my husband when he started to present symptoms similar to a heart attack.

Within minutes of placing the call to 911, our home was filled with first responders, he was taken to the hospital, I was scared, and I had no idea what to do next. Thankfully, we had family and friends who helped us manage the next hours, days, and weeks.

The next 2 years involved similar health scares and with each passing incident, my anxiety grew and grew. We grateful to have smart, caring health care providers – and while he was treated for supraventricular tachycardia (SVT), a heart condition with episodes of an abnormally fast heart rate, I ignored my own mental and emotional health.

Finally, I reached out to my doctor and talked with her about my constant state of anxiety, worry and dread. We agreed that a combination of medication and therapy was best for me. During my first therapy session, we discussed creating a family action plan to help answer many of the questions that were troubling me.

“What do I do now….”

“How will I manage when ….”

“Who will help if ….”

And so, out of that one conversation was a realization that I am likely not the only one who could benefit from intentional plans to help when a family is faced with “What do I do now?”

It’s a hope and dream that we can simply help others be ready.
This is your invitation to be ready.
