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!"

The crown is on straight!




I need this today!  I do not like this electrophysiologist, I do not think he likes me either.  It is a draw!  As much as I want my doctors to care about me as a person, I am learning that just is not realistic in today’s world.  I am a paycheck, a billable hour, a means to an end…..nothing more.   If he is the one that ends up doing the surgery (which is highly likely) I will look at it, just like I am hiring an electrician.  As long as he does his job well, we do not have to like each other.  I do not give him any more of my power.  The crown is on straight and I make the choices from here on out!
