Life is back to normal. Business is doing well and lots of opportunities keep floating my way.
My energy levels are great. My cardiovascular capacity is so large that I feel like I’m not getting a workout because I barely get tired! I go longer and possibly harder but never feel out of breath. As soon as the weather cools down, I’m going to start training for the CN Tower stair climb. Even if I unable to go to the climb, my goal is to do the Casa Loma stairs 17 times in a row. (the equivalent of the CN tower)
The tenderness in my chest region has subsided. I can sleep on my stomach. It’s not painful but I can still feel it’s healing. There’s still inflammation, a bump that most people don’t notice until I point it out.
I re-watched the video from my time in the hospital. It feels like a lifetime ago. Now, I don’t even feel like I’ve gone through some major surgery. I’m constantly reminded every time I see a fitness class participant or neighbour telling me how amazed they are that I’m looking so good. I don’t feel the same way about this experience as the people around me. Not that I want to ever go through that again but it’s over and I am enjoying my new better functioning heart. I’ve moved on from the experience and unless some significant changes happens beyond now, I’ll update this blog.
