Hi again

To start off I would like to thank the supportive words that all of you have said, it means a lot to know that I'm not alone. Because a lot of the time that is how I feel along with the fact that nobody in my life understands how I'm feeling, both mentally and physically. I'm not the same person that I was before my surgery. Even though my heart doctor adamantly says that I'm as good as new, even better than I was. I try and explain as best I can but it often feels like I can't find the right… Continue

For anyone wondering I'm only 35. I was operated on September 15 2010. I wasn't like this before my operation. I'm simply not the same person what so ever. I continue to try and become the old me but fail constantly. I'm trying to live a healthy life. I'm not into any drugs, or anything. Continue

I need help

Miracle Lady Part 2

  We had moved into our beautiful five bedroom, three bath home on a golf course on March 29th, my husbands 56th birthday. I had turned sixty on March 19th and was due to fly to Washington and then to California in mid June to visit family. This was a busy spring and I was really frustrated to find myself being rushed to the emergency room. I didn't have time to be sick.

The Miracle Lady

  May 31st, 2009 was like any other day for me. I was tired from doing yard work the day before and hadn't been feeling very well but contributed that to the extreme heat here in Kansas. I had been lying down on a futon reading a book in the spare bedroom I had turned into a little sitting room. It was 9:30 p.m. and I sat up as I needed to change positions. In the process of sitting up the most excruciating pain shot through my upper back clear through to the front of my chest. I felt like I…
