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!"

....must be lived and not told about.


They say “Lived to tell about it, But I say... CHEERS to the things that must be lived and not told about."

Some things in life…. that we want to last forever, just cannot.  Not because I chose it to be like that, it is just the way it is.  My only choice at this point is to mourn the loss like a death or celebrate the memories of the experience like a once in a life time vacation.   They are spectacular once in a lifetime memories that I anticipated and enjoyed.  They had a beginning (departure) and an end (return)  and I am a better person for having experienced it.   The only difference is these memories can only be lived and never told about.  SHHHHH and CHEERS!
