Dear Blog Friends, What a month I have had!!!! October has just passed me by!!! In fact, 2023 has been a year I hope I never have again! After several heart-aches and health problems this year, I am still glad to be here ---kicking and screaming (ha)!!
For you see, I had another health emergency --and this one turned out to be the worst one I've had. A few weeks ago, following the big Hematoma on my hip, my Cardiologist said that I needed to get a Watchman Implant put in my heart, so that I could get off of the dangerous Blood Thinner. I was thrilled to get that procedure done, so we planned it...
On October 12, I went to the hospital and had that procedure done. It was successful. HOWEVER, during that process, the doctors hit an ARTERY --which caused lots and lots of bleeding. My Blood Pressure dropped so low that they thought I would go into Cardiac Arrest. Luckily, they found the leak and fixed it (with the help of TWO stints)... AND--I'm still here to tell that story!! Thanks be to God.
It's been a little over a week since all of this happened, and I'm am home recovering... I'm black and blue from the bruising and I have a big Hematoma on the upper part of my right leg... But--with each passing day, I'm beginning to feel better. It's a long process and I just need to be patient.
Yesterday my Sweet Husband took me for a ride along the back roads in our area... (We had missed our annual trip to the Smokies/Cherohala this year.) So this little ride gave me an opportunity to take some Fall pictures on the Cumberland Plateau... It was so much fun --and was like "medicine" for my soul.
Here are a few pictures for you today. Hope you are all WELL and HAPPY.
Love to ALL,
BETSY and GEORGE
