Yesterday's walk with The Walking Curvy Girls was awesome. Eleven ladies showed up. I had 10000 steps by the time we finished & 75 minutes (9600) of aerobic steps. Not too shabby. We walk again on Monday morning (I'm excited to be off from work so I can join them).
So yesterday I had my first walk with The Walking Curvy Girls (we all go to Curves). Only 3 of us could make it yesterday but we had such a great time that we're doing it again this morning. I think 7 are to be there today, including the owner of my gym.
Yesterday, I didn't get to walk much outside of the scheduled walk because I had an eye doctor's appointment (I need glasses - boohoo!), but I had 11000+ steps by the time I went to bed -- 6000+ of those were aerobic steps (55 minutes).
My Aunt Doris continues to improve. She should be strong enough by Wednesday to have the LVAD implanted. Thanks so much for your prayers!! Y'all ROCK!!!!
Some of the ladies at my gym have started a walking club. I go on my first walk with them today & I'm so excited!!
Thanks so much for your prayers for my Aunt Doris. They determined she was not yet strong enough to have the LVAD implanted, so they put in a balloon pump instead. She has been on blood thinners since the heart attack last year, so we were concerned about blood loss during the surgery yesterday. But she did great!! Her organs (particularly her kidneys -- which had been failing) responded very positively to the increased blood flow & oxygen. They'll give her some time to heal & reevaluate her for the LVAD surgery at a later date.
I am so thankful for each of you for praying for me & my family. We are so close-knit & to lose someone is always devastating. I am so humbled & blessed at your graciousness & generosity. Thank you for your kind words, SparkGoodies, etc. We feel the love.
