It's been three months and I figure its about time I check in with a life update. I know a lot of you have asked and I suppose I'm overdue, so… here goes.
First and foremost, I feel great – absolutely great. I feel like an 18-year-old kid again. I've lost 40 pounds. FORTY. 4-0. That in and of itself is amazing to me.
I've been to my cardiologist and GP — both were very pleased with my recovery. I'll go back to the cardiologist again next month where we'll put together a schedule for my future visits.
Merrin has been amazing, as you could probably guess. She's helped me learn how to stick to my new diet and kept me on schedule. I'm quite certain that I would have fallen "off the wagon" a long time ago were it not for her. She is an angel who loves me more than I could ever deserve.
Most of all, I think I've learned to appreciate every day. I suppose that's not an easy lesson to learn – it certainly hasn't been for me. But… I guess that's what living life is all about.
