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!"

One step closer to getting it!

And today it begins!  Several months of a 4th artery collapse and almost 2 more months of recovery after open heart surgery and I promise you no one is more anxious to take back a life than me!

The honest truth is, I would be tickled beyond belief to have the quality of life I had before surgery, and even with all of the problems….I was functioning!  This sitting around, waiting for this invisible event they all call “healing” is not easy for me.
 
You cannot begin to imagine how thrilled I am to begin teaching again tonight.  Teaching means I am taking my life back; it is the beginning of functioning again.  Teaching means I will be in the midst of my tribe, ARTISTS & CREATIVES at least once a week and that will fill my soul.  Teaching at the Leesburg Center for the Arts means once a week I will be out of town with friends and family!

YEP….I want my life back and today….. I am one step closer to getting it!
