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...

Flow Chart Mentality...Holy Crap!

Twice in the past couple of weeks I have had the unusual experience of  medical people using the phrase “You are on the left (or right) side of the flow chart”.  For you LEFT BRAINERS this may make perfect sense, but those of us with RIGHT BRAIN mentality it is confusing as hell!  When I was told we are working down the RIGHT side of the flow chart, I took it to mean RIGHT, GOOD, CORRECT, APPROPRIATE….then in a conversation with someone else, they mentioned they were working down the LEFT side of the flow chart and this was a great situation….WHAT?  I was confused, looked up a flow chart, and this is what I found….HOLY CRAP!  "What we have here is a failure to communicate"
