Feeling Good

Five days later and I'm feeling good!

I had a stent put in my right artery, which was 70-80% blocked, and a balloon in the left side, which was 99% blocked. The reason for the balloon instead of a stent on the left side is due to my artieries being very small. There is another blockage at 75%, but it too is to small for any type of correction.

I've always said my mom and dad didn't put me together right....LOL!

I am making some life changing changes, #1 is to stop smoking. This has been the hardest thing for me, I have been smoking for 30 years. I feel I am doing very well. I have only smoked 4 cigarettes since Sunday evening. I know each day will get easier for me.

I also have to change my eating habits. I don't like alot of foods, and really think it is a waste that God created us to have to eat to survive. I get all my calories each day from soda....not good huh? anyway, my mom bought me this awesome heart healthy cookbook. I have had 3 meals out of it which were all wonderful.

I will now take it day by day! Pin It

Sorry to hear about your run of bad luck. I hope you do take the step to quit smoking, it will really help, I know! I had to quit two and a half years ago do to my health. I was on vacation in Vegas and by the time I got home I could not breath Went to the hospital and came home with oxygen 24 hours a day. Not fun I was two darn young to be dragging that darn thing around. Anyway if I can quit anyone can. If you need and help guve me a shout. I will try and give you a few tips. Take care and don't do to much for a while. Get some rest.
