Caregiver Shout-Out!Kim and Sam Presswood

This Shout-Out goes from pulmonary hypertension patient Kim Presswood to her husband and caregiver Sam.

I have been married to my husband for twelve years. When I first married him, I never thought he would have to be my caregiver just years down the road from our wedding day. He has been a part of every step in my diagnosis with PH. I don’t know what I would do with him – literally. He is not just my husband but also my best friend. I appreciate him for taking such good care of me, and I know it’s hard for him. Between my appointments, emergency room visits, and his father’s end stage colon cancer, my husband is always torn on where to be.

I would just like to say thank you, Sammy, for everything you are to me. I know PH is such a hard thing to accept, but you make it easier just knowing you’re at my side no matter what.
