Just found out (as if I didn't already know...) that I have Atrial fibrillation plus a lower pumping capacity in my heart (that part I did not know). Ugh.
Of course, I knew something significant was going on, and has been for some time. The rapid beating in my chest, as if a horse was trying to gallop out; the dizziness and light-headedness; the extreme fatigue. All have been there. It has, in fact, made it quite difficult to do what needs to be done. Chest pains, arm pain, jaw pain...yes; have had those too. But when I went into the hospital last Fall with these same symptoms, I was not having a heart attack...thank heavens! Or a stroke either. All in my family medical history. Yikes!
So, to get healthy. Hmmm... That has been the goal and the attempt for years now.
I've struggled with health problems ever since the cancer treatments. It seems that when I was radiated, they had to get some of my heart as well. There was no getting around it. However, if I had to do things over again, I would have had them miss the heart, regardless of what they 'suggested'.
Oh, to do things over again. But move forward, we must.
First, I still have to figure out what is going on in my abdomen. The tests are inconclusive. Images must come next, I believe.
To think that perhaps I did not appreciate being healthy when I was...it just about kills me. To have those days back would be amazing. I hope I can instill healthy choices in my children since they've been blessed with both parents' wonderful genes...*sigh* But I have to admit that I'll take my trials any day over others that I see out there. That is truly scary.
Here's hope to those who need it most. My best wishes to you all. And, please fight for what you want out of life to the very end! Endure well, and don't ever give up! Our families are so dear and deserve the best from us. Here's to the fight!

...is not all its cracked up to be...at least, on some days. Let me clarify--
Here I sit at 6:48 p.m. with my darling boy, still fighting over math problems. Secretly, I want to strangle him. Is that bad? Okay...it was a bad joke. Needless to say, we've had a rough day. Math has been, by far, the worst today. He has hemmed and hawed and whined and complained so continually that I've wanted to just run screaming into the nearby field.
Am I crazy yet?! Absolutely. Far gone.
But then, there are the days where he smiles at me and hugs me and tells me he's so lucky to have a mom who will spend this kind of time with him, and he learns so quickly and patiently that I'm wishing today were that day. *sigh*
But its not. So, we must press on until we're finished. I don't think there's anything more worthwhile than raising good children unto the Lord. But I still hope I'm doing that while secretly desiring to beat him. How can that be? I don't know. I just know that today is hard and that we have both been helped to survive this day.
If you're like me, you love the digital age and all the fun gadgets that are now available to us to do so many cool things. I love my new Kindle that I received for my birthday this year from my sweet sister and the cool pink cover my daughter bought for it. I've read a TON of books since January. Like that's ever an issue... :)
But...and there is a but...I still LOVE real books--paperback or hard cover--any day over a digital copy. To hold a novel in my hand is such a treat and a great treasure. Books really are a prize.
So, with that in mind, I've made sure to create a paperback copy of my new novella. :) Pick up your copy here today!
In preparation for my book launch for Pirate Bride (hopefully the end of May), I'm excited to offer FREE Saturdays in April! Get your FREE Kindle copies here of The Governess: Book One--Volume Two! Yes, you heard right--VOLUME TWO! Yay!!
Of course, Volume Two also comes in Paperback on Amazon, as well. Just follow the link on that same Amazon page. Or try a Hardcover copy from Lulu.com here: Casewrap or Dust-Jacket. Choose your style. Just remember, the FREE copy is Kindle only. :)
I love it when you all 'share' and 'like' these links and spread the word! Thanks! :) And reviews are excellent too! Hugs all the way around!
So, this has not been a fun week. First, I had to go in to the cardiologist and still have yet to do the tests there this next week. Now, I'm prepping for a real exciting procedure to be completed tomorrow, and I'm on a liquid diet for that purpose. At least I'm not fasting. But still, I'm tired of doctors and doctor's offices.
