Saturday afternoon I had to call 911.

I thought I was having a heart attack, but it turned out to be something else.  Anyway, I have spent the last three days in the Heart Hospital getting everything checked out!

The good news is that they did an angiogram and my arteries were "wide open."  I must attribute that to Weight Watchers, because I have had this test done before and they weren't so clear.  I found this to be very encouraging, and a good reason to stay the course on my dieting efforts.

Life is so very precious.  I have come home from the hospital today with a renewed resolve to continue working toward adopting a healthy lifestyle.  It isn't easy, as we all know.  But the alternative is Not Worth It!  I want to do everything in my power to avoid being rushed to the hospital again!  And I want to encourage everyone I know to do the same.

Even through this ordeal, God has blessed me.  Many prayers were sent to Him on my behalf, and I felt those prayers.  So, boring or not, I'm sticking to my plan. I don't want to squander the time He has given me.  Every moment is a gift from Him, and I don't think He's asking too much for me to take care of myself with healthy eating and moderate exercise, or even taking a few pills (which I hate to do) for a while.

BTW, I'm going to have to have my gallbladder removed.  I wonder how much it weighs?



  1. I wish I'd known... I could have been praying!!! But good to know it's something "simple" like a gall bladder and not a heart issue. Daddy said he felt SO much better once his was out, so I'll pray the same is true for you.

    Blessings, Jill

    1. Thank you, Jill. I tried to post on FB that I was in the hospital, but I didn't have good enough reception in my hospital room.

  2. Hi Cindy,

    How nice to see a new post! Ha! You are so funny. No idea how much a gallbladder weighs but every ounce gone is good, huh? I'm so thankful that you're ok. When you reached us in the car driving back from Austin Saturday, Todd made me pull over and let him drive. I was very shaky. Yes, life is precious. Too bad He has to hit us over the gallbladder to make us remember that. Sending up praises to God that you are home and received good care!

    Love you,
