I’ve tried to answer all the emails I’ve gotten from everyone and it really is not a secret. I’ve been posting on my personal site about the issue, but enough of you have asked, I’d like to fill you in quickly. Please feel free to ignore this post.
Back in August, Christy had some serious chest pains. Her doctor thought she was having either a pulmonary embolism or a gall bladder attack based on the symptoms. He ordered a scan of her chest to rule out the P.E., knowing if it came back negative that it was the gall bladder.
