Darius Talks About His Health

June 22, 2009

After returning home from a recent trip, Darius went to the doctor to check out a cough that had been bugging him for a while. While there, Darius was diagnosed with congestive heart failure. He is now taking medicine for his heart and is on a special diet. He remains upbeat and is feeling much better, but doctors advise him to avoid most travel.

Here are Darius’s own words about his health:

“Sometimes traveling has a wear and tear on my body and can get too stressful, which is not good for my heart. I have been going to doctor appointments, and they have said that I am doing pretty good. I am working on scheduling appointments with specialists that know the best about my disease. I am taking several prescription drugs right now.

“I am doing good, I feel the same as I did a year ago, and I feel healthy and blessed. I get to spend more time with my family and I am enjoying life.

“I do not want people to worry about me, I’m fine, I do not want them to cry, get down, or worry about my situation. I just want people to continue helping me carry on my story and cure this disease.”
