This Saturday will be my 1 year anniversary. Most likely, I am the only one that will even remember. 1 year ago I underwent some pretty risky open heart surgery to re-vascularize “hibernating” cardiac tissue. It was one of the hardest thing I have ever done, It was an incredible disappointing failure of the procedure (the hibernating tissue did not “wake up” and My EF is still dances in the 25% range) I suffered from a post op TIA and kidney failure and even more surgery as soon as this healed. It was a rough couple of weeks months, year! But I am still here, still living, still creating, still teaching, still laughing, still loving and I bought myself and my heart a gift to celebrate. I commissioned the most magnificent jewelry artist to create this for me and it was delivered today. Made of 3 different metals that represent my mind, body and spirit, the 4 big pieces of my life, my family and the rest is pretty evident and tells my story better than a thousand words. I am proud…I survived…I am moving forward!
