The folks at the Heart Failure Clinic are amazing. They are so positive, upbeat and encouraging it is impossible to leave there not feeling uplifted.
My condition is degenerative meaning there is no cure or fix, I have known that all along. The heart disease is advancing. This old ticker of mine showing a little more wear and tear but still hanging in there.
Over all, everything considered I am doing well.
We talked about the past failed procedure and of how the surgeon is willing to attempt it again if I decide I would like it or feel it is necessary. Now that procedure was never designed to extend my life but to improve on my quality of life.
Their focus was mostly on telling me to get out there and enjoy life. None of us know how long we have, make the most of it. I couldn’t help but think, I’ve had this thought before and it is a really good one.
