Rebirth and Rejuvenation

Exactly 9 days ago I had double by-pass surgery done on my heart. Pain has become a living , breathing thing, but I am stronger than it is and can beat it. I have done it before, I can do it again.

This time it doesn't seem to be as bad as the first time, and I already feel much better as far as the function of my heart goes. I feel healthier, even though I am still on oxygen because of chf and copd, but those are both temporary and should be rectified within 2-3 weeks. Dragging around an oxygen hose is no fun, and slows me down. I feel like a dog on a long leash...

Learned to not run out of pain meds the first week....
Learned to not overdo one day and pay for it the next-God must be teaching me patience
Learned to plan ahead for bathroom trips....can't move too fast yet...
Learned just how much I love my blessed family and grandbabies-indescribable....
Learned to be grateful for tiny things, not just small things...
Learned just how much pain and fear I can face and make it through with room to spare
Learned how much I really want to LIVE-not just get by day by day...
Learned that people still want to buy my art.....
Learned that nurses are really angels wearing scrubs....
Learned I can give up bad habits easier than I thought....
Learned when to rest so that I don't pay for it later by sleeping and moaning all afternoon....

Learned that this blog and it's readers are important to me....

In the meantime, keep learning, and Happy Creating!
