Heart and Soul

“How I maintain a positive attitude after receiving a mechanical valve in my heart & a pace maker to help my heart function.”

I  rely on my faith in God,  read daily devotionals, focus on positive thoughts: count my blessings, give back to the community: help patients cope with the recovery process/patient advocate, connect with positive people who believe in my dreams, keep the lines of communication open with my beautiful family, friends and wonderful medical team : especially on the days when I’m not feeling 100%.

I look forward to celebrating my nine year heart anniversary in a couple of months(February 2018).

 

 

I have so  much to be grateful for..
