My Journey Through the Heart
I am a drop of blood coming from the brain. I’m filthy and feeling blue. I came through the superior vena cava, and started to knock on the right atrium pleading to be let in. “Please right atrium let me in!” I said. Finally they opened and I rushed in and waited for the tricuspid valve to open. After it had opened I rushed into the right ventricle then the pulmonary artery which is the only artery that carries the de-oxygenated blood took me to the lungs. I felt so special. On my way I saw my friend the septum, I waved to him but he didn’t wave back he must have been in a bad mood. I arrived at the lungs and waited until I was taken in and stared to wash me. I went swish swash. Finally I was finished and ready to go. I was taken by the pulmonary vein which is the only vein that carries oxygenated blood to the left atrium! Again I waited for the valve to open but this time it was the mitral valve. The valve finally opened and I entered the right ventricle. I am now being taken by the aorta the largest artery to restart my new journey in the human body!!!
