She has been a single landlord earning passive income since she divorced 30 years ago. She has never smoked and drinks alcohol socially. She denies any marijuana, cocaine, or heroin use. She has not traveled anywhere in years, preferring the comfort of her home. On exam, the patient is an emaciated woman with an unremarkable cardiac exam.
