We can all relate to that! I am 53 years old....and on May 22nd (my 10th wedding anniversary, of all days), I had a major heart attack....100% blockage of my LAD "Widowmaker" artery. I now have 5 stents in my heart, had to give up the cigarettes that I enjoyed for 37 years, change my diet, attend 12 weeks of cardiac rehab and plan to exercise regularly for the rest of my life, etc. I never in a million years thought this would happen to me....and yes, my entire life has changed.
I hope you'll share your story and keep coming back....I find it very helpful to talk with people who are going through the same thing.
Thanks, Marilyn. As I previously mentioned, Alive Day is a term that I first heard used on Wounded Warrior communications by and about Iraqi war vets. It is not my term, but I think it applies to our people as well. I adopted it's use for my special day, when so many people came together to perform a miracle and save my life, which they and others continued and continue to do, in one form or another, to this present day, two and a half years later.We truly are interconnected with each other in this beautiful life and universe.
Have a happy and peaceful day,Ira
