In May 2009, I had my first symptoms of what was later determined to be hypertrophic cardiomyopathy.
In November 2009, we traveled to Burbank to attend the filming of an episode of “The Big Bang Theory” (season three, episode eleven: “The Maternal Congruence”). When rewatching the episode last night, we noticed that Sheldon observed, when the Grinch’s heart grew three sizes, that “enlargement of the heart muscle, or hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, is a serious disease which can lead to congestive heart failure.”
I nearly fell off the couch.
It wasn’t until nearly five years after we attended that taping that my doctor diagnosed my issue.
Was Sheldon trying to tell me something?
