One Heart Beat Away.........

I guess that you can say at this point in my life that I am one heart beat away from joining my sweet Mommy in Heaven.
My heart is barely even functioning along with my lungs. Some days when it is particularly bad, I stop & think Heavenly Father & Mommy & My Savior, I can't do this anymore, I am at my lowest low. They pick me up & we move forward together! I know that without the 3 of them, I would not have the strength to keep going! This is my blog to share my journey with you. With the inability to breath, I have not been able to exercise & thus put on massive amounts of weight since my Mommy died & my health failed! So I am starting a program called Eat & Be Lean by Dana Thornock & her Sister-in-law. Dana unfortunately died from a tissue attacking disease in 2005, but this worked for me in the '90's so I am going to do this again & need some moral support & if anyone would like to join me you can the website is: There is a book on there that you can look at if you would like to they actually have a pdf on there of the whole book but I purchased the book & cds & was going to see if my sisters & my sweet Mom would like to do it with me. It is not a quick fix & it will take a lot of very hard work, but will be worth it in the end! Some have said not to tell how I am feeling health wise (illness, etc.) but I really feel that this will be beneficial to me in the end! Please don 't think any less of me for the Number that I am going to tell you on the is hard for me to reveal but I want you to see from where I stand today & where I can go with My Father in Heaven's Help & From my Mommy on the other side of the Veil! Cheering me on!  We are still waiting for my Surgery to be approved from DMBA.  
(Guys you can stop reading for a few lines...) 
It will be a Mammaplasty----in other words it is a breast reduction surgery, medically necessary because the heart & lungs are being suffocated. Dr. Rockwell says that he thought that it would not be a problem to have them sign off on the surgery. only we are going to have to convince ziggy not to climb! after surgery!

We figure with the Doctors that being able to breath, I could then excercise thus being able to lose the weight! And I wouldn't have gotten this ball rolling except for my sweet sis Kari! Thanks so much! I know that I will feel so much better! I Love You Sis!
That is my New Doctor (Dr. Bradford  Rockwell MD) that will perform the surgery @ the U! And I will be staying Overnight for observation. Love the Bowtie! ;-)

The moment that we have been waiting for.......not really!!!

  2. Congratulations on getting this going! That is great. I'm so glad you are following what sounds to be a good life style plan and not a quick and "easy" diet. You can do it! I can't wait to be able to keep up with your progress.
