Every day is a gift

I know I’ve said this many times but we all need reminders that each day we are given is a gift and we need to do our best to make the most of it!

If you follow me you know I’ve had my share of heart problems since suffering sudden cardiac arrest two years ago. I suffer with random unsustained tachycardia that we recently discovered my heart doesn’t like the flu shot 😉 I have an implanted defibrillator to help protect me now but I am also dealing with a very low heart rate. So tomorrow I am going in to have my device upgraded to be able to regularly pace my heart in addition to protecting me from cardiac arrest.

I feel the box in my shoulder every day and am reminded of how very lucky I am. I’m working hard to make the most of each day, each gift I’m given but like everyone I have good days and bad days embracing the gift of life. Grateful for my loving and supportive husband and my daughter and her husband as well as my extended family. My husband will be by my side and my daughter connected via facetime and text from germany.

I appreciate all the connections I have made through my website, DesignerDigitals as well as my art licensing connections and I am grateful for all the thoughts and prayers for the long and full life that this upgrade will give me. xx
