It’s been a while. When there are long periods of time where I stay away from writing here it means either things are going really rough or things are going better than I could hope for. I tend to stay away because I don’t like dwelling on either one for fear of taking my eye “off the prize” or losing focus.
I’m happy to report that my absence has been because of the latter; after a long difficult, pain-in-the-butt summer, I am out and about, feeling strong and better than I have in a long time. For the first time in a long time I am out of my head, not so afraid of being “out there” with my heart, and the most confident I’ve been since I lost that confidence somewhere in the midst of countless hospitalizations, procedures, and other patient craziness. Anyway, my heart is staying the same, holding strong, being the badass warrior that she is. I know she’ll hang on, keep getting better. And my new thing? Seriously looking into stem cells and options for heart stem cells in the next year or so. This, I think, is the help my gorgeous ticker might need to get to the next level.
Think healthy heart!
