Happy Tuesday!!

Today I'm going to address some questions, comments and offers. 1. I've decided I'm now battery operated! The pacemaker has lithium batteries in it so it's good for about 9 years, then it gets switched out which I hear is waaay easier than having it out in originally. 2. Kevin is done washing my hair and YES I enjoyed every minute of it! Once the Dr gave me the OK to shower on my own and raise my hands above my head he was done! He's pretty smart...There's no way to scam him into believing he needs to continue washing my hair, especially when he heard the Dr TELL me I can now do it myself....bummer. 3. Thank you for all your offers for sleeping aids!  I'm sure those work manuals and other work reading materials/programs are so exciting I'd instantly drop off to sleep!  4. Piled on top of me (besides wearing 2 shirts, fleece hoodie, fleece pants, thick socks) was an ELECTRIC blanket, not just any blanket. And eventho the house was 79°....The blanket was set on medium/high. I was really cold! 

    Yesterday was my first day at BAC for cardiac rehab. It was very interesting listening to people talk about what they had done and how they ended up at rehab. Most people I talked to had stints put in, some stints then surgery.  I worked one on one with Liz who was extremely knowledgeable and attentive. Not only was she watching me and my vitals on a computer right next to me, some one else was  watching and monitoring my vitals from the main desk there! 

    I saw my MD yesterday just to keep him updated and whatever. I can't believe I have ACNE! It's partly what was pumped into me and stress coming out....I'm releasing toxins. YUK!....He said not to worry about it. In 3 months it'll all be gone and I'll have a new set of things bothering me! Nice!! Happy Tuesday everyone!! I'm still improving and appreciate all your prayers, hugs and concern!! I miss you all and will see you in April!! Tracy

    I'm so happy for you. That's a big surgery. Not to be selfish but I'm happy for me too. I need my hairdresser. HA HA! You will feel better and will be able to do anything and everything you want to do. Bless those Doctors that made you well. Miss you.
