Cardiac Rehab

Today I am starting cardiac rehab. It has been three weeks since my heart attack.

I will be doing rehab 3 x a week for 10 – 12 weeks. I set my appointments for early since I get up early anyway and that way I can still take mother in law to the church 2 x a week.

Rehab will not cost me any copays so that is a good thing.

Ever since I have been home from the hospital Jack and I walk for 30 minutes outdoors around 7:00 a.m. By the time I do that I am pooped out. I take a daily nap which I never did before the heart attack.

I see the cardiologist this week and will find out what testing is going to be done to evaluate my heart function. I have met my deductible on my health insurance as well as the maximum out of pocket so I want the best testing available.

Last week we ate salmon patties and tuna casserole to get in our two fish meals a week. I am sure fish will get old to me I would rather eat chicken.

Texas Heat

It is quite hot here in Texas and the humidity seems to make it worse.

My sister Sheri and I walk 3 – days a week and we start walking at about 7:15 a.m. and it’s already hot.

We are determined to get in our exercise so we will persevere and wait patiently for the cooler fall temperatures.

We found a park nearby where the squirrels are all very friendly so yesterday we took some food for them some chicken scratch corn and sunflower seeds and they were quite grateful.

I would love to photograph them but carrying my camera on a walk like this is too much. Maybe I will try my phone but I am never crazy about the pictures I take with it.

When you can add natures beauty and the wildlife to your walks, it really makes your walks even more special.
