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!"

Boom shaka-laka... Boom shaka-laka

Ever have one of those days that things feel like they just might go right? Of course after yesterday…that would not be hard.

First I was stood up for a lunch date, nothing more humiliating than being seated by the hostess who has been told you are expecting a second.....that never shows up.  You know they are all staring!   So, do you pay for 1 iced tea and slink out or order lunch, like I am a strong, independent woman.  I came here....a single...in a booth...ON PURPOSE!  The broccoli cheese soup was spectacular!

Then in the midst of communicating with the state government and uploading requested information to their web site my internet/cable goes down. As if communicating with the government and navigating their red tape was not already fraught with technical difficulty!

The afternoon was peppered with phone calls from grown children wanting to know what the Thanksgiving and Christmas family plans were. (which evidently I have not done anything about!)  Crap, wasn't Easter last week?

Then showed up for a board meeting whose location had been moved, and I missed the memo on the venue change…..ooosh, how embarrassing.

Having survived yesterday I am due for a little boom shaka-laka!

Bring it on!
