Hello friends
I wanted to let you know that I am feeling great since my open heart surgery.
I am doing Cardiac Rehab twice a week and have another month to go. It is nothing like Zumba which I miss very much. I expect to return by November but I am hearing that open heart patients do not completely recover for a year!! I will take what I can get.  I just feel so amazing and have so much energy and want to use it all but I know I have to take it easy, after all my heart just went through a very traumatic thing.

I will be seeing the Cardiac PA here in Coos Bay on Friday and then my surgeon on the 18th so I will know more then but I am hoping I can at least get my driving privileges back and be able to soak in a hot tub!

I am however, doing my normal house cleaning and laundry and cooking now and without any problems. My incision is healing and the bruising is almost gone. I have some pinching sensation now and then but rehab says that is my sternum healing.

I am back to creating new tins for my Etsy Shop Altered State of Tin and getting stocked up for the holidays.
I am back full time with my Artist Network, Digital Whisper and I my creative juices are flowing.

 This is a piece I did for my Things with Wings" Challenge

Anyway I am feeling better and hope you are all okay too.
This was a piece I did just because my creative juices are flowing right now
