Surgiversary #9  
Today is the 9th anniversary of my heart surgery. I wasn't supposed to live to 50, according to my surgeon, unless I got to a normal weight. I wrote in my paper journal:

Dr. Bronstein came in and told me the surgery went fine, then lectured me about my weight. He told me that if I didn't get down to a normal weight I wouldn't make it to age 50. (I'm 42.)

Sometimes the doctors do look at me like they wonder how I do it. Is it the fiber? The antioxidants? The power of love? Who knows? I made it another year, that's all that matters.

That's a good sign. It no longer controls your whole life (lives). I didn't remember right away, either.

I hadn't thought of it like that. Thank you. :)
