Today is a Milestone Day For Me

Today is March 23, which means it has been six months since I had my heart surgery.

I had a heart catheter procedure done on my birthday last year, and it turned out I had an 80% blockage in my heart.

Six months later, I still am not up to my normal stamina, but every day I feel myself getting stronger. I almost never need my nitro spray anymore, and I walk faster than I did pre-surgery.

It’s amazing how much better I feel with the blood fully circulating through my heart. LOL

I still have to contend with the MS and all that, but as scary as it was to have it done, I’m glad that I took that leap of faith and did it.

I probably wouldn’t be here marking a six-month milestone if I hadn’t.

Now, I just need to build up my stamina so I can handle all the walking on my June trip to Canada for TBEX.
