Update on Constance - Broken Wings's Blog

About Broken Wings

Bloggers Photo

I  am a writer, a poet. My poetry is deep, dark and sad, I write a lot about death, but I can write happy if I want to and do. I love art, classical music, reading, nature, meditation, dreaming.  I collect old books, vintage clothing and jewelry,  I seem to like anything old,  I adore the Victorian house where I live with my cats and I often feel out of place in this world.

Update on Constance


Blog Posted:6/14/2017 7:00:00 AM
U0DATE THEY CANCELLED MY SURGERY FOR TODAY WILL HAPPEN TOMORROW MORNING Hello So almost everyone knows that last Wednesday, I had a massive heart attack. At the time they found a major artery going to my heart totally blocked and they put a stent in. They also saw another blockage in a more difficult part of the heart and decided to leave it. But the blockage is 80% and my heart is only functioning at 32%. So, tomorrow they will put the second stent in. My body is weak and bruised and battered, I feel broken but i will overcome this. Will let you know how it all works out as soon as I can, or ask my brother Peter to keep you up to date.

Thinking about you today!! I hope the second surgery went okay. And yes, you will overcome this, too. Your dance troop misses you and you have much more boogeying to do... when you get better, it may be time to change your name. You will never be broken. You will be wild and UN-broken. Huuuugs

I believe you'll come thru this fine in the end... but it will take some time. We'll miss you until then and consider you a GREAT friend. My heart was once pumping 47% of the time until they put a pacemaker in to make it work. It was nice to get back up off the floor where I had often found myself. It took a while to get my strength back. But I did and you can too. Now my heart beat is lengthening out... and will eventually lead me to fibulation. No cure this time... But I enjoy life and live vicariously thru Dragon... Come back strong to this little writting community. We miss you.

As I posted before, I have had 3 stents in place for 15 years. Right after I had the stents and had cardio rehab, I felt soooo much better. Did not realize I had not been breathing freely. I hope you have the same experience! Prayers are with you from me.

I wish you a speedy recovery my friend. I had a stent put in back in 2009. After your physical healing process, changing to heart healthy diet is a must.. May God bless you and aid in your healing.
