Papa’s World – five and one half years – MPI TEST

My heart attack occurred on 11-4-13 –

beginning a new life.

GOOD MORNING

My last visit to my heart doctor –

He told me it was time to have Myocardial Perfusion Imaging test.

We would schedule it before my next appointment –

Yesterday – at 7:15 am. it began.

For the next 3 to 4 hours –

I was undergoing scans – injections –

Blood pressure readings –

treadmill and more injections and scans.

MY WIFE AND ADVOCATE

The injections were a Nuclear medicine –

to go into the heart through a IV –

and then 18 minutes of scanned picture taking while being absolutely still.

SO CAN NUCLEAR TESTS

I was worried –

first – I do not like needles –

and to have something like that injected into your artery !!!

You sign a form –

some side effects may be HEART ATTACK or DEATH !

OR REMAIN POSITIVE & TRUST IN GOD

The TREAD MILL – I was all hooked up –

I had to hit a heart rate of 129 to 150 –

IT TOOK TEN MINUTES

and they increased the incline and speed every three minutes.

Had I been in a car instead of the tread mill –

I would of done just that !

I DO NOT RUN –

I DO NOT LIKE TO RUN –

I HURT MYSELF WHEN I RUN !

In the ten minutes I was on there –

I DID ONE MILE !

LORD HELP ME !!!

The last 2 .5 minutes were at a 4.2 minute mile !

I am 70 years old –

dancing is more my speed !

When I had cooled down –

she told me –

your treadmill for your age

IS VERY GOOD TO EXCELLENT !!!!!

My prayers were answered –

I did not slip off –

I hung on –

And I finished it !

ME

I had to go back a second time for a scan –

and then sit and wait.

Before I started – they told me –

if anything is wrong –

you will go upstairs

If it is all right – you go home –

I WENT HOME – all clear !

MY WHY

On the way home – they called me –

They had read the scans –

they could see the OLD HEART ATTACK –

THERE WAS NO SIGN OF ANYTHING ELSE HAPPENING !!

I was clear –

my cholesterol at my last test – 118 !!!!

WHY – WHAT -and HOW ?

WHY ?

My wife Sherry and following her schedule – and JUICE PLUS !

Those are my TWO REASONS WHY –

WHAT – healthy eating

and my supplement –

ORCHARD – GARDEN – VINEYARD and OMEGA’S

Five and one half years after my WIDOW MAKER –

I am clear –

I am me –

And that my friends is HOW I beat the odds !

SHERRY & TOM

I have friends out there

who have had HEART problems –

My advice –

find a partner to motivate you –

And then find a whole food supplement

with RESEARCH !

I found mine –

Thank you and keep on reading Papa’s World

Papa’s World – walking for health – 10,000 steps – / day

Each day I lace them up – double tie my Sketchers – Kucher would be proud of me !

Sherry walking the trail

We have lived in our community for thirteen years – and during that time – as it developed – so have the walking trails – 15 miles of them !

Soon – as other sections open up – an additional 5 to 8 miles will be added.

Storm brewing over the lake

Walking has become a way of life for both of us – each with our own fit bits !

We have many different paths to follow – and can customize them to almost any length we want.

About a 1/2 mile left to home

Our goal is walk walk 10,000 steps each day – depending on the weather, we also walk for different charities.

I have found walking outside – is much more to my liking than a tread mill – I get bored way to easy on them !

Health – is my main reason for walking.

In 2013 – ( see a previous blog ) I suffered a major HEAR ATTACK –

known as the WIDOW MAKER !

I ended up with OPEN HEART surgery – and am still alive ( I take Juice Plus )

My wife – Sherry – certified health coach

My recovery has been amazing –

and I have the best coach I could have – my wife – who has worked so hard and absorbed so much in Healthy living.

Moving – is what my Heart doctor says is the one factor that means the most to me in my post care – along with eating healthy –

no dairy – no processed food – no red meat – no gluten – a little beer once in a while – and if I do have any of the above – it is rare and a small amount.

One of the exercise stations along the way

Maintaining has become a way of life for me – and taking a supplement – you can search the internet –

I stay away from vitamins – as they are mostly selective in my opinion – I choose the WHOLE FOOD way for my self.

Eating as many servings of fruits and vegetables as I can – and that is hard to do !

So – I use a supplement – called Juice Plus – raw fruits – vegetables and berries – juiced – skins and all – and then slowly dried – and left in a powder of nutrients –

that research proves goes immediately into the blood stream.

The path through the woods.

Walking for health – I have to if I want to live longer !

Sometimes –

yes -I do cheat – it is too cold or raining or snowing

( next Winter we are going South ) so we do not walk outside –

but I walk in the house. I have a routine – but that bores me !

So – we head for the Mall !

We have 5 free library stations along the paths.

I also keep my mind sharp as I can –

I find the exercise of writing – forcing myself to think – to create –

( I do not know what I will write each day ) !

My writing is SEEING and then THINKING and then WRITING !

Our Free Library’s offer a pickup and exchange books – you bring one and take one.

I READ all the time – my wife runs the church book club and I have read books that I have never heard of !

It keeps my mind sharp – you have to keep body and mind going !

Tunnels so you do not have to cross in traffic
All lit up day and night

We have tunnels – under the roads –

so we do not have traffic to stop our walks – there are now FIVE of them and I just read where another trail will open and another tunnel will connect us to it !

Multiple bridges and lakes and streams and woods

We have Deer – Turkeys – Bears – Foxes -Geese – Birds – fish – turtles –

although I have never seen a Bear –

I have seen pictures taken of them and home security footage of them with in a couple blocks of our home !

We are reminded about garbage we put out – I have seen Deer running down the street and other wild life.

Almost home from our walk

I hope this helps in your quest for a healthy lifestyle –

ours is healthy eating – a healthy supplement – and walking – and reading
