life, love,art. heart failure and assorted ramblings

Don't Talk Like That...

I write to find out what my heart thinks....
I write to expose and work through the ugly parts of this disease, open heart surgery that was less than successful and more recently an S-ICD (internal cardiac defibrillator) implanted in my chest that will hopefully restore my heart beat in case of sudden cardiac death. I am here to celebrate my life, to uncover my fears, to hold on to love, to learn how to live a full life with heart failure, to honor my creativity, and to explore all of my emotions out loud ...before anyone can say
"Don't talk like that!"


Music is loading really slow lately...sorry...

No word from Shands- Do they understand?

Struggling with focusing on positive... Understanding that there is positive out there, it needs my patience (patience that I had precious little of, before all of this started). In the mean time, I keep myself busy with Artist Way Weekend! My favorite weekend of the entire year. Better than Christmas!


  1. Hi Cheryl,

    This is Cathy and Joy. I am attempting, not very successfully, to teach Joy about Facebook. In doing so, we came across your blog. We just want to send our best wishes and our love. We're glad to see that you are wearing the big girl panties today! Joy and I will be joining the Big Girl Panty Society. :-) We are just wondering, however, if they are referring to the size of the panties or the girl when they say big. I, of course, could qualify for either, though Joy says, with a laugh, that's not true. Does she mean I'm not wearing my big girl panties today? I thought I was. :-)
    Please know that we love you and know that the universe is unfolding as it should.

  2. You guys are too funny!
    Love you!
    Bon voyage Joy, be safe!
