This has not been the best couple months. In February I went on a wonderful trip with Ann. Early May was TOPS convention and again more fun. Beginning of June David and I went to Indiana for Hope’s graduation and had fun. Last of September went on bus trip to Cape Cod and had a super time. Weight wise I have yoyoed all year and ended the year with a gain but not as bad as I thought it would be. November was not fun— one of my cousins died 5weeks after being diagnosed with pancreatic cancer, then dear daughter’s aunt and uncle (in laws) that I really loved died within days of each other, then the icing on the cake was a heart Cathe—results being 99.9% blockage in one artery (3 sections) and 75% blockage another place. Thankfully all my children were in Ga but Donna had strep and flu so David and DeAnna had to sit with me. I stent was put in at local hospital and then to St. Vincents in Jacksonville, FL by ambulance the next day. They didn’t have to “roster router) the artery and managed with 3 more stents. That was Tuesday evening. Wednesday I was suppose to go home but passed out in the bathroom (never really said why) so was finally able to go home Thursday.
Now DeAnna stayed with me until the next Wednesday—insisted she would stay until I had my new mobile help system up and running. Now I appreciate how much my children love me and want to protect me but it is not good for my mental health. She left Thanksgiving Eve—perfect timing.
I have started cardio rehab last week and will do for 12 weeks. I have high hopes to be up and going soon. If I can just get my mojo back. I know others that have had stents and some have told me have had to deal with the blues, something I didn’t even have after 3 babies. I am normally a very positive person but I admit it’s not been easy. If anyone has some tips, please let me know. I am not a fan of meds. I seem to have bad reactions most of the time.
