View From My Window

Monday, November 28, 2022 — A truly kick-back kind of day today. I am on a hot streak of feeling good — no shortness of breath, no oxygen, and no nebulizer treatments. I’ve been able to do what I want and it feels wonderful. I’m thinking that whatever event was going on with my heart has settled down and as long as I continue to be careful and take my meds, I’ll be o.k.

A search on FaceBook for Congestive Heart Failure support groups brought me the fact that people can, and do, live with congestive heart failure. In fact, they can live very long lives with it. I haven’t learned all of the ins and outs of dealing with the condition, but know that as long as there’s people out there living with it, I can too. It’s a matter of learning what to do to take care of yourself, to keep your heart pumping and your self out of the hospital!

I do have a couple of issues that have come up that I need to deal with, but one thing at a time and one day at a time and all will be well.

Be safe, be well — TAKE CARE OF YOURSELF!! I think I ignored ‘me’ for far too long and am now paying the price for it. Never too late to change our stripes or habits. We just have to decide what needs to be done and do it. I’m that pleased that my life is continuing on… May you all be blessed and I thank you for being a part of my life. Be sure to tell those you love that you love them.

Happily married and retired, my hobbies are quilting, reading and anything to do with trains (watching, photographing and running them in our G scale garden railroad). My husband and I have truly enjoyed our retirement, and have fulfilled one of our primary goals in life and that is to own a home overlooking train tracks so we can watch trains 24/7. We are sincerely blessed in this life.

  2. Both my late mother and my sister have/are dealing with CHF. It was the cancer that took my mom, not CHF. It can be managed. Amen to taking care of ourselves. I put myself last for decades and had 2 mini-strokes in 2016…got rid of a lot of the stressors in my life, changed my mindset, took the appropriate prescribed medications, and have been fine ever since. You got this!
