back from the almost-dead, literally
I had a heart attack!.....day after New Year's, after having the entire family here for turkey dinner. I knew I shouldn't have eaten such a big helping of stuffing, with gravy!

so....thanks to the wonders of modern medicine, I was whisked away by ambulance to surgery, had a 4.5 hour open heart surgery, where they sawed through my breastbone, took a vein out of my leg, and re-routed 3 blocked arteries.

Amazing! I should be dead now, at age 65.5......but oh so glad to be alive. Luckily, my heart wasn't damaged at all, and if I'm a good girl, follow a stricter diet (no more white breand 'n butter sandwiches); walk 30 to 60 mins per day, I should live a long while yet.

So glad to be back from the almost-dead.
