Spring 2019 Colorado

It has been almost a month since my last post.  Things are progressing well with my recovery.  Hitting the gym hard and working out has helped and making me feel better.  Up to 2-3 miles on treadmill and 12-15 miles on bike in cardiac rehab.  Pacemaker seems to be working well and no screaming alarms lately.  Still have moments of…

Welcome………

Woke up in the dark yesterday.  It was early and the only light in the bedroom was the sunrise peeking around the edges of the window blind.  As my eyes focused I could hear the soft breathing of Tigger and Tess our two cats, Pepi our Chihuahua and my wife Judith all snuggled around me….
