Dear Care and Feeding,

My husband recently suffered from a rather significant heart attack. He is recovering but has permanent damage to his heart. He is able to continue to work (desk job) but will have limitations on movement-based activities. He is quite young (mid-30s) and we have two young elementary-aged kids. At the time of his heart attack, I obviously went through a range of emotions.
