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

    Welcome to Spark People - you have already done so well but it never hurts to find some friendly support to keep us going.

    You might want to try using the Nutrition Tracker - it turned my life around totally.

    Thank you for the encouragement and I am truly sorry for your sons life. I have tried to talk with my Bishop but he is soo busy and so it hasnt gone anywhere! I am going to set up an appt. monday. I dont take any meds. and I know I have some health issues but so far I cant find a dr. who will deal with them. Mostly female heatlh problems. I know I need to be on some meds for my depression..I just have a hard time talking to anyone about my true feelings and concerns. I have a fear of opening myself up beyond what people see and expect, if you can understand what Im saying. Thank you though for your kind words. I sometimes feel as if my prayers are bouncing off the walls and they arnt reaching God...God bless you!
