I have been losing weight slowly and doing what I can do in the way of exercise. I'm a very close person. I keep most everything to myself. That is my down fall since being on SparkPeople. It is going to be a learning experience because I don't like talking about myself at all. So please be patient with me. I would appreciate it very much. When the paramedics got here my heart rate was 189 beats per minute. Heart Attack time. Was in the hospital 4 days that time. I started having heart hearts every 6 weeks to two months. Was hospitalize for each one except for one. I refused to go in. I thought I could handle it myself. I'm use to handling everything by myself. That was the wrong thing to do. Always get to the hospital as soon as you can. It could save your life. The home health nurse came out for that one. I had one 11/9/2013. I prayed to God that I would get through the holidays without having one. Which I did. Christmas and New Years was very rough on me because of not hearing from my Son Ernie for over two years and being alone. He lives 50 miles from me. One of my Goals this year was to stay out of the hospital. That was short lived. My next heart attack was 1/23/2014. Came home 1/28/2014. Then on 2/8/2014 I stared having bad chest pain again Now this time I knew it was not a heart attack. T wanted to get in before it case it went into one. Was in the ICU for 2 days the last 2 times I was in the hospital. Blood Pressure was over 200 when the Paramedics got here. B/P went down to 60/30 because of the Nitro Drip they had me on. Had to stop it. My B/P was going all over the place up and down for 2-3 days. They had to stablizied before I could come home 2/11/2014. The diagosed is LVOT ( left ventricular outflow tract obstruction). Will be on Plavix for 2 more months. Will continue my heart medication. Will continue to monitor B/P and heart rate at home. Have to get a heart monitor machine though. Hope medicare will pay for it. I have no stents at all. Three of the arteries are narrowing in the heart along with a artery going into the intestines. Have had complications through all of this too. I have a brother in California too. Will blog about him at a later date. I love helping people too. I feel that I have help a lot of people here on Spark too. Which I'm happy about. I love to motivate, encourage and do whatever I can to help people here on Spark on their journeys too. I live to help everyone the best I can. I hope this blog has told you about me and my life now. My Lord Jesus Christ has brought me through all of this. I thank my God for it and Praise the Lord. Jesus is my Savior. God Blessings to Everyone. May God be with you always and protect you from harm and danger too. I give God all the /glory for everything too. Keep Sparking til next time Elaine. Thank You everyone for all your support and prayers. Please continue to pray for me as I continue on this journey od my life. Thanks Again.
