This Woman was Hospitalized with a Broken Heart!

This medical mystery is definitely one I'll never forget. Joanie Simpson, 62, loves all of her pets. But she was particularly close to her Yorkie, Meja. 

Joanie was home alone with Meja when the 8-year-old Yorkie died of congestive heart failure. Joanie was grief-stricken. 

Four days later, Joanie was airlifted to Houston's Memorial Hermann Medical Center experiencing all the symptoms of a massive heart attack. 

Joanie was diagnosed with Takotsubo cardiomyopathy, or broken heart syndrome.
