Mixed report: A-fib has been okay for past couple of months but had a LAD heart attack on 2/16/15. Just started cardiac rehab. Glad to be alive!
Feeling good! Twenty one months since surgery for afib and only one small episode! I've begun exercising regularly and eating healthier. I feel better than I have in years. Hang in, there can be life after a-fib!
Had an a-fib episode last night (intense 45 minutes, self-cardioverted) after 17 months a-fib free. Feeling scared, depressed, and trying to see it as a blip on the screen and not another pattern forming. The good news is I went 17 months with NO a-fib!!
We used to correspond and then I left MedHelp, but I still think of you from time to time. I'm glad to see that you've had relief from the afib! I know that it used to plague you so! Hope you are enjoying life and your grandchildren. Evadee and I still continue to correspond, though not often. She's very, very busy with university; she selected a very grueling course of study, but seems to enjoy it. I think she enjoys the 3 hour commute each way less, however, and will surely like it even less as the cold, snowy Canadian winter approaches. Her beloved little companion, Lady T died this summer and she's still coping with that heartbreak, but she is a strong lady. As for me, I've had a number of health difficulties since we last chatted but I'm hanging in for now. Take care!
Just a quick note to say hi! HOw are you Mary? Been so busy..jsut finish a year at university. 3rd week I have gone without sugar and wheat! Hope this time I manage to stay off of these two products. How are you? how are grandchildren? Been a long, hard winter here in eastern Canada. My dog Lady T is still living..had her 16th b'day last month. Still cold here and wet! whats new dear lady?
