"the nicest and the sweetest days are not those on which anything very splendid or wonderful or exciting happens, but just those that bring simple pleasure, following one another softly, like pearls slipping off a string."

Heartfelt Friday...


the best and most beautiful

things in the world

cannot be seen or even touched.

They must be felt

with the heart.

  3. very cool blog! where have I been? I just noticed you had added yourself to my followers list and came hopping over to meet you. Have you been to my place before? I know this is bad but I'm more forgetful than I used to be. I have read quite a ways down your blog and ma interested to hear the rest of your story, I cannot quite figure out why as many symptoms as you had your diagnostics kept coming back normal. Did they do an angiogram? Labs? A comprehensive cardiac work up? why did this get dragged out for so long? Was your heart attack a "small" one? I am a baby beginner in critical care so I'm really interested. And your son works in Hospice? What does he do is he a nurse? I worked in hospice too, needless to say I'll be back.

  4. When I read that, I was thinking about how society so often tells us what is beautiful and I get caught up in that and forget to "feel" the small, daily things of beauty in my own life.

    I'm with Karen Deborah: curious about your son's job with Hospice.

  7. Karen Deborah,

    I'm so glad you dropped by! I have been over to your blog a few times---I may have lurked---I can't remember. Isn't that how it goes?
    To answer a couple of your questions. Yes, I had an angiogram...about six months befoe these symptoms. Every time I wen to the E.R. my EKG and cardiac-iso's were normal. I think at that time there was no reason for the dr. to think MI. I did have an RCA blockage of 100% lucky for me that one is easiest to survive. getting there however was not.

    My son Jeff was working for Job Corp in their drug/rehab programs but lost that job due to government cutbacks a few years ago. He took that experience and began working Hospice eventually becoming an LPN. Very emotionally draining work but he loves it.

    I look forward to your return and also reading more of your blog. Take care,

    JoJo
