My display name is set to "Kendra" for an assignment right now. I've been assigned a fictitious patient who's my age (!) and female to write about their experience with a heart problem, so I did the (easy) thing and created a blog for it, complete with fake name, fake dates, and fake experiences.:
Yes, Kendra is my middle name - I'm very creative in finding names to use... lol.
Nope, I don't have mitral valve disease :) Even a tiny bit. Nor did I grow up anywhere near Manitoba, and my parents are both wonderful and responsible people who always took me to the doctor. The worst thing I had as a kid was frequent ear infections (and frequent antibiotic treatments for them). :)
