Changes and Decisions!

Sunday, February 09, 2020

It is amazing how you can get comfortable in your life and then everything changes and decisions must be made of how to proceed. 2019 was that year! It started with a trip to the emergency room of our local hospital where it was discovered I had a heart attack, was kept for a couple of days and after many tests decided I needed to have an aorta valve replacement and then when doing the heart cath found I needed to stents which they did. The aorta valve replacement was done two weeks later with the Tavar procedure due to the COPD and being on oxygen 24/7. All went well and after cardio rehab I was feeling pretty good. Then comes the eye doctor with cataract surgery in both eyes then new glasses after the healing was complete. All in all a rough year with many medical bills and budget difficulties in missing so much work. So decisions are being made. Giving up my home which has stairs that are harder to manage each day as well as the maintenance and upkeep on a house that is much too big for me and moving to a two bedroom one bath apartment. Downsizing has begun!
