Long past due update

Hadn’t realized how long it has been since I have bee on the blog. Time seems to be just flying past. Not sure how I keep busy doing nothing. Napping most of the afternoon does speed the day by. I know I am napping to much as it is causing me to be up later in the evening.
It was a good summer, got to spend some time with both daughters and families. Love my little princesses.
By my standards it was too hot with high humidity far too many days. Breathing is much more difficult when it is like that.
Medically, not a lot has really changed. I am scheduled for another heart ablation on Oct. 23. That though is dependant on getting my blood work in line. I take warfarin to thin my blood, reduces risk of a stroke. For the ablation if blood is too thick greater risk of major stroke, too thin greater risk I’d bleeding out.
I am hoping they can go for it. Had an ablation in I think April, at the same time one of the heart meds was increased. Not sure which to credit or a combination of both as made things better. In one way nothing has changed in that I still have my episodes almost nightly. Light headed dizzy, wonkie head, falling, heart acting up. Improvement is everything while being the same the severity has lessened. I am more careful in getting up so yes I have fallen but I guess I am more prepared. If I fall now it is back on to the bed or back into the chair. Haven’t actually hit the floor in at least a couple of months.
The light foggy head thing is more frequent but also not as severe as times in the past.
Realizing more and more, this body of mine just doesn’t have the energy it once did. The constantly being tired, no energy, lethargic is getting to me. I am in God’s hands what better place could I be

    Hi Bill – it’s good to hear from you. I wish you well for the 23rd. But you are being prepared for things … eg the fall and being in God’s hands … it eases things … all the very best to you and Vi .. and am glad you had time with the children and grandchildren. Hilary

    I’ll be praying and hoping for good things. Perspective is everything, and you have a pretty good perspective about “things we cannot change”. Accepting those things as our ‘new normal’ is where a lot of folks can get hung up–including me. I can waste a lot of time trying to make things as they once were, bemoaning what IS. This perspective of acceptance and seeing the good in your ‘new normal’ is my little reminder. Life doesn’t give us a smooth road–speed bumps aren’t bad things. They give us opportunities to slow down and take care of ourselves in the NOW. Guessing that applies to all of us. LOL–meeeee included! 😉
    *hugs to you and yours*

    Hi Bill. Just popping in to let you know I’ll send up some prayers for you on Friday for your heart procedure. Grateful for your post, and especially the awareness you share that you know you are in God’s hands. “I’m with you on that one!” Hope you’re enjoying the beautiful fall weather today, still some beautiful leaves left!

    And I’m just checking back to let you know I’m still thinking of you and praying for you. *sending healing, positive thoughts*

    Dear Bill,
    I haven’t heard from you in weeks and am getting a wee bit concerned…I pray that you are in good spirits and that you are continuing to fight the good fight. I know it’s exhausting and not easy to maintain any motivation and optimism but rest assured that we’re all behind you…supporting you in our own quiet way.
    Thinking of you often and praying for you always, Wiseman.

    Well, if Irene is owning up to being concerned, then I’m joining in. :-/ Bit worried, sir. Hoping the ablation went without a hitch….and that you’ve snuck outside to enjoy a few of those “Indian Summer” afternoons. I’ve done that a few times this week, celebrating 60° weather in November for goodness sakes! Check in….let us know how things are going for you. You’ve got a host of folks who care about you HUGELY! ((((( Bill ))))) Still keeping you and yours in thought and prayer. It’s just what I DO. 😉

    Dear Bill,
    How about a wee sign…anything! Let us know how you’re doing please. I know it’s exhausting and difficult but a few words would certainly help us. Perhaps I am asking too much–if so, don’t worry…we’ll wait.
    Thinking of you often and praying for you always, Wiseman.
