Really?

I'll get right to the point.

Its' been a year since the "event." Yup, a year since I had a heart attack.  I MADE IT TO A YEAR!!!!

I have researched and researched and Steve has done even more research about longevity after the kind of heart attack I had with stenting and there really isn't much info out there. But, a year after anything is a landmark, right?

I'm 26 pounds lighter, can max out the incline on two treadmills at a pace of 4.1, have decided to hate the recumbent bike this month, am almost at 6 minutes on the stair climber and can swallow an entire serving of fish. I am proud of all of these achievements. I have had some help....Steve is the best support ever and I can't overlook the following: Plavix, Cozaar, Metropolol, Hydrochlorthiazide, Simvastatin, Advair, and Aspirin. Onward to year two!

Now, if I could just get Mimi Louise to hit the litter box rather than potty with her front feet in the litter box and her butt outside of it life would be perfect!

I'm sure you have many more heart attack anniversaires in you after all the changes you've made. Training a cat to do anything? Well, good luck with that.

We are all very happy that the new, improved Rosemary is here to celebrate this anniversary. Life is good.

I'm sorry that Hallmark doesn't make a card for this. You really should start blogging more and share the near perfection with us.

My attitude to live is that every day on the right side of the grass is a treasure and a gift - and may you and we all have many more such gifts

WOW, middle of July (almost) and I just noticed that you posted in the middle of June. Good to know that you're still surviving, and losing 26 pounds, weell, that's just marvellous, I wish I could too!
Hope you'll be blogging more often now. I miss you!
