Sorry so long
Sorry for it being so long. Well another bad night. Up most of the night. Thinking about the year that has just past. Exactly one year ago I was in the Henry Ford hospital recovery from open heart surgery. Triple bypass and value replacement And if that wasn’t enough 8 days later for a pacemaker . And what a trip that was and still is. Lots of changes from day to day. Trying to eat healthy which is always a challenge because I’m so picky about my food. No salt. How do you eat raw vegetables with now salt? No sugar? What? No sugar or cream in my coffee. Then why drink it? No cookies, pies donuts potatoes chip. Now tell me how do you eat a sandwich without Better Made Chips. No process food. Which means no beacon, lunch meat, yellow cheese, very little Steak and definitely no hamburger. And this is the big one NO CHOCOLATE, WHAT? I can’t live with out my chocolate. They tell me to eat more fish, I don’t even like fish unless it’s a McDs fish fillet. So anyways trying to teach these old taste buds to like healthy foods. Now let’s talk about see the doctors this past year. I have seen more doctor this past year that I have my entire 67 years. I can’t even tell you how many times I had my blood drawn. There was one day they took 18 tubes of my blood out. I was ready to pass out. And the people who took the blood didn’t even offer me juice and cookies. At least when you give your blood to Red Cross they give juice and cookies. And what about all these new medication? I take one the keep the heart to slow it down, one to speed it up, one to make my blood thinner, I take one low blood pressure and one high blood pressure, I take some to help me pee more, ok Yep there’s been lots of changes to this pass year but all the doctors tell me that everything is good. Hell I didn’t know things were bad. (LOL) They say I look great. Really what was wrong with my looks before? I thought I looked great before the surgery. Anyways I am healing and getting strong every day. But I gotta say it’s been one hell of a year. I definitely don’t want to go thought another one like it. And one last thing I want to thank Joe Barresi, my husband and my sister in law Carol Rushing-Budzyn for taking care of me. They were both by my side all the way.. I could of not heal as I did with out them. I love you Both so much.Thanks to all the family and some of my friends for all the love and care you have given me.
