Boni Posted August 29, 2009 Report Share Posted August 29, 2009 This is definitely NOT quilt related but I believe it is important and needed by all of us. Patty is still in the hospital but should be going home soon. This lady was enjoying life and due to circumstances beyond her control was knocked flat! What should have been obvious by previous incidences, was allowed to progress to almost death. The pacemaker was put in to regulate her misfiring/irregular heart beat--a needed procedure. Now they have discovered after three incidents, she has a rejection issue. The doctors are researching a covering for the pacemaker so her body won't reject it and when she is completely healed, they will put it back in keeping their fingers crossed that her body will stay clean. IN THE MEANTIME: and the reason I'm writing this, she will go home with a new way of eating and living. Doctors want her to lose fifty pounds and this is what they are recommending: http://goodfoodgreatmedicine.com/cookbook/What%20is%20so%20Important%20About%20Good%20Food.pdf It is a book called Good Food Great Medicine, by Miles Hassell, a local physician, St. Vincent Medical Center. It is all about eating good food, exercising, and living for optimal health. I want to encourage you to check it out. His writing style is quite humorous, and full of common sense. It made a believer out of me. I hope it will help someone out there. Patty and I are going to work together and learn what we can to make changes in our lives. We almost lost her, and we'll start with this to try to prevent that from happening again. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
