My Small Health Update

Hello everyone, I am still alive. LOL. I am still walking the planet, because of I weren’t, I would not be able to be writing this. LOL. Nice!!! Okay. My update to my update is now I guess. I did go for the Defribulator, I do hope I spelled that right, and the procedure went well. I did have to heal for a bit. Nothing major. I went for my follow up visit with the surgeon and he said the machine is working fine and that I am healing well. That was good news. But, he gave me a look like ( I cannot believe you’re alive ). Strange I know. But I did not pay attention to that.  I also made an appointment for my regular doctor, the doctor that will be taking care of me and doing the follow ups on the machine. Well, I saw him, he did not say much but he did say one thing that I cannot seem to shake. He said I am a very sick man. Wow, that was like a punch in the gut. I did not ask him what he meant and I let it go. He also said that I have been quite beat up the last six months. That’s true. But I don’t feel like I was beaten up. And I told him that. That is when he said I am a very sick man. Oh well. Look, I am not giving up one bit. And besides I do feel good. Not perfect, but good. I have my good days walking and my bad days. The stairs are the one sticking point for me. But I can do a flight and stop for a minute, and then go on.  I am eating as good as I can and that’s the best I can do. Look, I am human and I believe that quality is better than quantity. So if I don’t live as long as I should, I at least enjoyed myself along the time I have. However long that is. Months, years, who knows. But I did read that people in my situation can live up to normal old ages. So that is something to think about. And as I said, I feel good. I also believe that my heart could improve to more percentage than it is now. That is why my doctor told me to walk everyday. At least 30 minutes a day. He basically said move around for 30 minutes a day. And I do as much as I can, weather permitting.  Well, that so far is my small health update. I hope everyone is doing fine and enjoying themselves. I will be writing more. I have tons of poems that were written from years ago that I am in the process of rewriting and some new ones I had written. So look for them in time. I do have a few personal things that I need to take care of. Well, That’s all I have for now.  Copyright © 2019 All Rights Reserved Tuesday, May 14th 2019 Image Credit: CoolText.com Small, Health, Update

I am working on being here more believe me. But I have to take care of myself first. I had a major set back here, but now I am getting my head and body together again. I did lose all focus on things and let many things go as a result of the heart attack. But I do need to get back into the flow of my thought process.

@inertia4 Oh definitely take care of yourself first. It's healing time - physically, mentally, emotionally - whatever - and the cool thing is you can always come here to talk about it - that can help too.

@much2say Right and that is why I love it here and all my friends here also. But I need to chill for a bit. I also need to take my mind off if it as well.

I wouldn't say perfect health. But getting better, yes. That is a better way to put it. Thanks.

Thank you. Yeah, I write poems. I have been for a long time. I also have a few short, or should I say, micro stories as well. I do plan on writing more of those as well.

@inertia4 That's great, my friend. Stories even micro is not my forte but sometimes my poems tell a story as well.

Glad to hear from you and that everything is going alright healthwise. Walking is the one thing I also need to do more. I am going to try to get myself at least walking around the block.

Yeah, walking is good for everyone. It keeps the blood flowing. Being too idle for too long causes many problems. But I have to pace myself these days. Which is okay I guess.

Nice to see you here again ! Sounds like you suffer from the atrial fibrillation.Hope you will soon get over it ! A cheerful frame of mind would be conducive to its treatment.

Well, I don't think it is arterial. The doctor says I have less than 20 percent of my heart working. But I don't feel like that. I am hoping the heart improves some to a higher percentage. But only time will tell.

I am trying. But as I said I am only human. So, food is a very important thing to me. Being Italian makes it harder for me to stay away from some foods.

Thank you. I am doing as good as I can right now. Who knows if it will get better in time or not. That remains to be seen. But hey, I am not sitting and dwelling on this either. I do have my moments though. But all in all, I still have to move forward.
