Mia's Memoirs

1 year!!

It has been a full year since my month of hell last October. It was the overnight hours of October 1st last year that I went into heart failure and October 2nd started my month of ER visits and complications after complications. Mom says it is AMAZING that I even pulled through such a horrific ordeal. Once the cardiologists got the medications sorted out and also diagnosed the pulmonary hypertension, life really improved. I also can't forget the feeding tube because that surgery alone really aided in turning my life around.

So here I am 1 year later and managing pretty well. Well enough that mom felt obligated to give me a stinking bath last week. I have to admit she was on pins and needles knowing the stress really can throw me into an episode. Too bad for her, it really does upset me. I was fine though, no episode.

I don't know what lies ahead but I made through some pretty rough times and I'll continue to just do the best I can. Many sleepless nights, love, and most importantly prayers got me though the first year and hopefully quite awhile longer.

PS - Bears are 3-1 :)
My honey Brian retired so I can no longer be Mia Furlacher.

Call me Mia Furte now ;)
