My heart full of thanks goes out to everyone who has had me in their thoughts and prayers this past few days and weeks.
As you know, for the past couple of weeks I have not been feeling well ... I had a horrible burning pain between my shoulder blades and into my chest, and was diagnosed with acid reflux. It was a pain that was deep and burning, and came on mostly while I was walking or exercising. I changed my diet, and seemed to be getting better ...
This past Saturday, about an hour after I woke up, I had another "episode" of extreme debilitating pain - and it would not let up. The pain spread to my left arm and underneath my jaw. I knew it was time to go to the Emergency Room.
To make a long story short, I did NOT have acid reflux --
I had a significant blockage in two of the vessels of my heart.
Yesterday I had an angiogram, and a stent was inserted into the blocked area - a very successful procedure!!!
I am back home now, a little ragged around the edges, with a bunch of new medications to take.
It has been a very humbling and learning experience.
There were scary moments and times that made me laugh til I nearly split my stitches.
I urge each person who reads this to take a second look at your HEART life ... your health decisions ... those little things that may or may not "mean something" to your health ... don't overlook anything! Because if something seems wrong ... it's worth checking out. Please.
Because I love all of YOU - my heart seeking friends and family!
And I want you all to be HEART HEALTHY!
Again ... thank you all for your healing thoughts and prayers. You mean so much to me!!!
