WOW it has really been a while since I blogged! A lot has happened in my life! Starting last year in early 2017 I started really getting weak and tired all the time and having trouble breathing. I went to a meeting in Louisville the first weekend in April and really had a rough time breathing. It sounded like I had COPD. When I got home the first thing I did was go to my doctor. He thought I had a lung infection but didn't like what he was hearing my my chest so he sent me to the hospital. After running all kinds of tests it turns out I have Chronic Hear Failure. They put in a stent the last of April and started cardiac rehab.

When they tested in June the stent hadn't helped much and my EF was 22. The end of June I received a Cadillac model pacemaker (pacemaker/simulator/defibrill
ator) and once again went back into Cardiac rehab. This time I started gaining strength.

Then in August after some issues that had been going on for some time I left my husband and started out on my own. After a lot of praying and searching God "sent" me to my new home, a 2 bedroom trailer in a nice quiet trailer park. I'm loving setting up housekeeping and fixing things up.

A month ago I was cleaning and lost my balance and fell into the garden bathtub. I knew immediately that I had broken a bone. Sure enough I shattered part of my scapula. I have been restricted in my activities now but hoping come Thurs I will be released to drive and do more things. I live in a great area to walk and have been wallking and enjoying getting my exercise.
