WELCOME BACK ME:-)

Hospital for diagnosis.

They go through my wrist.

All done but will return for stent.

Home after stent inserted. This time they went through groin.  Frankie and Slim protect me.
Working on a few portraits of blog friends.  Can you guess? Will post more later.


Played games.
Lots of family around.
Second Christmas Dinner
More Christmas more family more games.

Still under some restrictions.  Hope to see everyone Monday with a Question Of The Week.  Plan to start Cardiac rehab again.  This was my 5th stent since 2003 MI, but no heart attack this time.  Caught early.  Hoping to pay better attention to my health this time around.

  3. Yea, she is back!!! So glad you are back and recuperating. I can so feel your pain for I got out of the hospital yesterday for the same darn thing. I had two stents for a 99.7% blockage. We both need to do a better job paying attention. I will if you will.

    1. Won't be healthy if I get an air fryer like yours? You have a lot of good suggestions for healthy lifestyle

    2. I find with the 1700 watt air-fryer that I used little to no oil. Even when making potatoes. So yum.

      Hope you feel better soon!

      And yes, I'm 100 percent bound on removing those cupboards. They are too dang high for me and that's with a footstool. Plus, I'm going for a prep kitchen/lab function.

      Thanks for dropping by today.

  5. I was expecting you to look like you’ve been through the ringer. Instead, you look fabulous!
    I hope you get stronger and feel better each day.

    1. It has been wonderful to be surrounded by family and now I'm totally on my own well except for the dogs and I think I'm ready

  7. I'm glad you are on the mend, those procedures are relatively easy on you now days for being as serious as they are, I had a 100% blockage taken care of during an emergency situation, and another through the wrist, that one was a lot easier on me. Just take care of yourself and don't rush the recovery.

    I know who the portraits are... nice job.

  12. Take care of yourself, Annie. Those smiling faces should make you feel better (and your guard dogs). I just read that Patti also got 2 stents for a blockage. We'll have to start a Heart Sister Club! Rest and relax!

    1. Barb you have done a wonderful job of recovery from your cardiac events. You can be the leader of our sisters. I think I have been at it longer but not with good results and discipline like you.

  14. 5th stent? Yikes. My ex-the first had a heart attack last year and they inserted a stent right away, through his groin, then told him he needs to schedule for another one sometime before Christmas. I haven't checked, but he probably had that done as he's still around.
    Please take care of yourself.

    1. After my first heart attack in 2003 they fixed a 100% blockage then had me come back a month later to fix the 80% blockage. I didn't understand why they didn't fix both at the same time. The doctor killed me in the second stent procedure and I was gone for 30 seconds. Hope you Ex got his taken care of.

  16. Great news. I have been latent in reading blogs and did not know. You looked really good in the hospital. I wish I could look that happy and healthy while undergoing procedures! Please exercise and eat well so you can have a few decades more.

    1. Thanks Tabor. Exercising and eating well are the keys to recovery. I am hopeful. The "eating well" is the hard part.
