Papa’s World – My blog site – 362 followers – from around the World – awesome!

Write happy thoughts!

Write about family & friends!

Write about each day in my life that I live!

You see my friends – in 2013 I suffered a heart attack!

Called ” A WIDOW MAKER” I should not be here!

http://www.sf.juiceplus.com MY WHY!

It is with in mind – I record our lives one day at a time –

hence my blog: livinglifedoingitmyway.blog

In a little over one year – thanks to my wife Sherry –

I now have a following of 362 plus followers!

Of which I only know four of them!

The rest are from all over the USA and the WORLD!

Screen shot on a normal day – I never though this would happen – but I guess projecting good thoughts – happy family life and adventures of two 70 plus year old’s must appeal to people!
Sherry and Papa – (Tom) living our life one day at a time. Each day I am alive is a blessing! I do not take it for granted.

Sherry is the driving force behind my blog –

” YOU HAVE TO WRITE AND PUT IT SOMEWHERE – A PLACE WE CAN FIND – WHEN YOU ARE GONE”

That is the reality and I am okay with it!

I write for family – I write to record for future generations so they know who I was!

Each day I open the site – answer the comments and push on!

I include lots of pictures – they all tell a story.

Each day I start out not knowing what I will write about

I see a picture I have taken – a event we did – or where a day has taken us.

Then – I start – so far I have scheduled a month ahead in stories –

That way – is we are going someplace – all I have to do is share it to face book!

On here – it is automatically scheduled!

My hope and desire is to bring inner peace to those that read this – and to see – when adversity hits home – when death knocks on your door – there is a life beyond and each day is a blessing – one that had it gone the other way – well – I am happy it didn’t – and that is going to be my legacy – living life doing it my way – blog!

PAPA’S WORLD – livinglifedoingitmyway.blog

Papa’s World – Living life to the plus – one day at a time – blessed that I can!

Another in the series of my year in review blogs – 2020.

Well – where do I start – I have lived another year – in most cases – I wouldn’t be here!

2020 has been a very strange year – but – here I am – living through it!

For those that do not know – seven years ago I had a heart attack!

Not your normal one if there is such a thing –

but they called it a “WIDOW MAKERS” one.

I ended up with FOUR BY PASSES!

and walked out of the hospital 52 hours after surgery!

We have grand children – and I am blessed to see a picture such as this!

So – a year in review of 2020 – it is scary – frustrating – wonderful – satisfying –

nerve wracking – joyful – nail biting – and any other adjective you can throw in there!

But – here we are on another adventure – after selling our house during a pandemic – living our lives one day at a time!

You never know as I can attest – just what the day before you can bring!

Now – we are building a new home near Ocean Isles Beach – N.C.

And being careful – wearing our masks when we are close to people and inside!

I see no sane reason to refuse to do that because it infringes on your liberties!

Come on you folks – who protest this – it is a common being nice sort of thing!

We old folks – well we have been around and wish to continue to be around –

so just wear them – it will not hurt you – and it may save me from covid19!

There – that is my take on the pandemic!

It is indeed a strange year – one of challenges but joy when you see your family!

ZOOM is now a big part of that – staying in touch with virtual meetings –

church and religion – shopping and home delivery!

And the times you spend with friends after quarantine!

We stay safe so we can enjoy friends – getting tested – being careful –

2020 has brought many strange things into our lives –

Who could imagine every day walking the sands and surf of the beach!

2020 – with all its quirks – and I am living to see it!

So – you see – I count my days as blessings – no matter what comes before me.

Yep – happens to me – but who cares!

In this past year – we have become more and more dependent on each other.

We have become closer to family if that is at all possible.

2020 has taught me things –

2020 has in a way – been a comfort for me in that we are once again

on a adventure – every day – planning – looking – exploring!

The sun rises with the one you love!

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 for reading

Papas World -Living life – one day at a time – my way.

I am now in my 70’s – and six years ago – it almost came to a end!

Today – I am here – and have found that when you experience

a awaking such as I did –

At least in my frame of mind –

I live life one day at a time

and I am doing it my way –

With guidance from my wife!

IT IS NOT FOR ME TO QUESTION WHY

BUT FOR ME TO DO OR DIE!

That just about sums it up!

Sherry
http://www.sf.juiceplus.com

We have been married 37 years and together 38 years!

That is a long time!

When I had my heart attack – she had already changed our lifestyles.

But – for me – I had not done very well in what I ate –

drank or just in general lived!

My past caught up with me –

I had lived pretty much as this quote!

Then we changed – and I reformed –

lucky that I did – because I should of died!

A Widow Maker Heart Attack should do that!

They told me they had never seen someone

who had a massive Heart Attack – so healthy!

Made me feel good – but did not change the fact

I DID THIS TO MYSELF –

and – If I had not changed when I did

I wouldn’t be here!

Very sobering!

I learned a lesson – the hard way !

You get one chance at life –

I consider myself as having a second chance.

I am not wasting it this time –
I had my six year check up –

A nuclear test and a ultra sound

and a stress test.

I passed all with flying colors after six years!

I still have scar tissue on my heart

I have to take med’s because of the heart attack.

But – I am following the course Sherry has sent me on.

After SIX YEARS – I have no signs of hardening of the arteries!

After FOUR BY PASSES – I am well –

I AM LIVING MY SECOND LIFE CHANCE

ONE DAY AT A TIME!

Papa’s World – LIVING LIFE

GOOD MORNING

Gratitude to being alive –

which if you know me-

I really should not be here !

I can count four times in my 70 plus years

that it could of gone the other way.

North Main Street
Eldred Pa.The cluster of houses
on the left side
at the top.

I was perhaps 4 or 5 years old –

I was going to cross the street – between two parked cars.

I stepped out and I heard the brakes –

I looked up and a matter of feet to my left

was a car stopped

we locked eyes – the driver and me

I was shaking – he just gripped the wheel

I came within several feet of being run over.

That has stayed with me to this day & I still see him in my mind.

My car accident

I was 17 years old – senior in H.S. playing football.

I went to visit my girl friend

My father had one big car and one small car.

The small one was a SIMCA – 5 speed – it was not fast at all !

It was like a square VW !

I was going toward the state line –

I put my turn signal on to turn left – I was in second gear

Just as I turned – a car came up from my rear going really fast

and decided to pass me instead of slowing down

The right front bumper and fender plowed into the door right behind me

I was thrown to the right passenger seat – my legs still on the gas pedal side

The back of my seat was pushed into the steering wheel

I spent 51 days in the hospital – not knowing if I would ever walk again.

The mid to late ’70’s – I rode motorcycle for 6 1/2 years

I was on my way to Amherst N.Y.

I was at a red light – up the one block was another red light.

There was a young girl in a VW – just got her drivers permit.

She started out – I followed and had only gotten into second gear

when I realized she had stopped and no brake lights

Somehow she had stalled the car

and had not hit the brake – just sat there.

The only thing I could do was lay the bike down

and slid right up under the bumper

I had no serious injury but I decided that was enough near miss’s

After so many of watching out for other drivers – I sold the bike

and never rode again .

Five and one half years ago – I had a WIDOW MAKERS HEART ATTACK

I had FOUR BLOCKAGES –

they told me I should not be alive

but they also told me

I was the most healthy heart attack victim they had ever seen.

Less than 48 hours after open heart surgery

I was home standing in my living room

with FOUR by passes.

I OWE MY WIFE MY LIFE !

She changed my health 13 years ago – with out those changes –

I am convinced I never would of made it !

She still manages me day to day

and my tests this Summer show ZERO hardening of the arteries!
