Not my best look, but I feel fine now

Happy Thanksgiving to one and all.  A very laid back day for me and the hubster today.  Last Saturday while out visiting the East Austin Art Studio tours, I suffered a minor heart attack.  Spent two nights in the hospital and got out Monday evening. Needless to say, it was not a lot of fun, and I am very glad to be back at home. This was a total shock to me, as I have been doing all the right things for my health.  Lost weight, exercising, etc.  But there were a few things I was neglecting. Some of the medications I was taking were raising my blood pressure, and I was not monitoring it so didn't know.  I was also not practicing my zen techniques for not getting myself wound up too tightly.  Ha Ha

I saw the cardiologist yesterday and was reassured that I am going to be fine, if I take meds and calm down. When asked if it was safe for me to take a flight out of town soon, he said...Only if you fly first class!  I like my Doctor! It's back to aqua yoga tomorrow at the Y.
