Dec 21, 2008

Guess I'd better update this page since so much has happened! I had a heart attack and went into heart failure on Nov 17th, had open heart surgery on Nov 24 (4 bypasses) and am going into 30 days post-op. The surgery was hell, it HURT, but it is getting better. My Cardiologist told me before the surgery that I had a 1 in 4 chance of living 4 more years without the surgery and a 97% chance of living 10 more YEARS WITH the surgery and my family & I liked those odds better, so here I am. I started Cardiac Rehab 2 weeks ago and this is a long, rough recovery!

My friends at Sparkpeople have been a God-send, I am so glad to know them and if you are new or this is your first time to visit my page=WELCOME!!!

My whole story summed up is this-I put off taking care of myself too long. I had many chances but went into denial and almost died because of it so now I am being forced to be more realistic and really get honest about this food addiction that I have had all of my life. It's tough, I like to eat and food has always been my "friend"(until it tried to kill me!) and I realized that it has never been anything but trouble for me!

For those of you that live around Northeast Arkansas, please visit the Northeast Arkansas Spark team page and join us! I know there are more than 7 people around here! LOL!!! Help me build this team and let's all help each other! Sparkpeople is a wonderful way of life and the BEST support group ever!

I look forward to meeting you and visiting with you! Until then-Merry Christmas and remember-Jesus is the reason for the Season!-Leslie

    Happy Birthday to You!!

    Born Aug 23, you are really not that different from anyone else -- on the outside. You would seem to anyone looking closely beneath the surface, however, to be radically different, for to begin with, you are driven by forces that no one else seems to feel, and they are certain to affect you throughout your lifetime, each and every day. When pressed, you will do your best to explain yourself to those who ask, but you never take the initiative in this regard; you feel that explaining yourself is the same as weakening yourself -- for what others do not know about you adds to your strength.

    The foreseeable to you is of very little interest, really; you prefer to focus on those things that are unforeseen -- which would be an overwhelming impossibility or a paradox, except that you have a knack for knowing what is going to happen when others have no clue.

    Hope your day was wonderful!
