While that might be hard to swallow right now, it beats the alternative!

I think my alcohol-drinking days are behind me now.

I never was an alcoholic, but I haven't touched any alcohol for a while now. Not since Thanksgiving, and I STILL have liquor and beer in the house and I'm not tempted to drink any!!

I am so sorry that you had to go through such a scare. You better take care of yourself from now on!!!!
Be VERY careful with the Cumatin!!!! It can be very bad news if they don't monitor you. I won't get into it, but, just make sure they watch your blood thinness at regular visits.

Thank you all for your continued support!!

Incidently, I AM going to see the doc today to see how the cumadin is doing. They've once told me to stop with it because the blood was too thin, then the told me to take half a pill.

I AM trying to be more careful this time. And it also looks like some of my strength is returning back to me. As long as I don't overtax myself, I think I'll be fine.

Heart is STILL at the normal beat. No A-fib and no palipitations so far. I was on longer treatment at the hospital this time around and wasn't rushed out.

Yes, it takes time to heal, and hopefully all of my strength will return. But I just can't rush things, or I might end up back in danger again, and I don't want that to happen ever again.

That is the most scariest thing - Not being able to breathe!!! I was deathly afraid to lye down because of that, thinking that I might die!!!!!!
