But wait, I had to come back a day later and edit this post to add one other very important disability moment in my life (how could I ever forget), and that was the Congestive Heart Failure diagnosis in 2013, when my EF (heart ejection fraction) was down in the teens, where a normal range is 55-70%. All this thought to be caused by a chemo drug two years earlier (Adriamyacin), and genetic factors. I was being schooled for what was thought to be an unavoidable heart transplant, but this had to wait until I was 5-years cancer free. Luckily with loads of medications, and an ICD implanted into my heart to help pace irregularities and shock my heart in case of heart failure, about 12-18 months later I improved enough to escape any additional heroic surgeries. My EF is now up to 30%.
AND, it's nice to have clean windows. 😊
Filling my life with love, laughter, family & friends!
