Papas World – six years and one day ago – 4 by passes.

I remember standing in front of the fire place –

the night before I was to leave –

I had to be there at 7:00 AM.

I looked around and wondered if

I would ever stand here again?

I was scared – I did not want to do this.

Six years later

I had a routine I had to do before I went to bed –

Instructions to prepare for major surgery

I kept looking around – in the mirror at my chest

Knowing in less that 24 hours – it would be changed

for the rest of my life – if I lived.

It is hard to describe how one feels when in 24 hours

You may not be alive.

That next morning I had to finish the instructions

and then the 45 to 60 minute drive to the hospital.

All the way there – I sat in the back seat –

looking in the dark at the lighted buildings we passed.

Tammy and Sherry were in the front.

Things run through your mind – do I back out?

Then a calm comes as you pull into the parking lot.

You are there – you start walking – and then like a second breath

It becomes real and you just want to get started

and not think anymore.

You have the most important person in the World by your side

They prep you and put in the ports

You say goodbye and they wheel you down

but first they inject what they said was a mild calming effect.

They came to the doors and I remember seeing everything seemed

to be black and white – and then nothing – I was out!

I awoke 3 1/2 hours after they finished – they had started at 10 am.

At 2:00 pm.

I was closed up and by 6:30 pm.

I was standing.

I recovered really fast – less than 48 hours later I was discharged

And once again standing in our living room in front of that same fireplace.

This time – smiling and thinking I am alive and here I stand – 62 hours later!

Sherry & Tom
almost six years later

I owe my health to my wife – who has steered me in the right direction

both in what I do and do not eat.

What supplements I do and do not take.

SIX YEARS AND ONE DAY AGO –

I HAD A MAJOR OPERATION

A OPEN HEART OPERATION

WITH FOUR BY PASSES

I AM ALIVE

Papa’s World – second test results mirror first – relieved

BELIEF

I went yesterday –

July 2 nd. to the Loudoun Hospital –

for my second test.

It has been five and one half years since I had a Major Heart Attack –

Known as THE WIDOW MAKER –

I had four blockages –

One 100 % One 90 % One 70 % & One 60 % ! ! ! !

GOOD MORNING

My HEART DOCTOR –

who I now see once a year – arranged for the tests.

Six weeks after I had the heart attack and stent –

I had OPEN HEART surgery and FOUR BY PASSES –

Most people do not survive this Heart Attack.

My wife and coach – Sherry

This test was a follow up Ultra Sound to the Nuke test

I had the two weeks prior .

The first test –

EVERYTHING WAS CLEAR –

My overall cholesterol 111 !

The STRESS TEST –

excellent ( for a 70 year old )

did one mile in just over ten minutes !

( I do not like running )

And the results of this one –

MIRRORED THE FIRST –

Sherry has guided me through all of this –

AND I LISTEN TO HER !

WALKING INTO HEALTH

You see –

she has become a CERTIFIED HEALTH COACH through Dr. Sears.

Also classes through Dr. Pam Popper.

She follows Doctors from the Cleveland Clinic

And gives presentations on HEALTHY LIVING to hundreds of people.

She is the head of our family.

When she speaks – people listen.

My inspiration

I have lived every part of this –

I recovered very fast –

I was home –

standing in my living room –

52 hours after the start of the surgery.

And it was because of her.

Together

Tests completed –

today I celebrate –

She talks – she shows the way –

she walks the talk and I follow the walk.

Following the Walk

I hope this inspires you –

I hope by reading this you can find your own place –

I had excellent results –

I am alive –

She is my Coach for life.
