My Heart Attack Anniversary – 7 Years Later

Me at the Beach

I missed a very important anniversary last week.  July 1st marked 7 years since my cardiac arrest, heart attack and bypass. As the author of a heart attack blog, it’s a little odd that I missed my own anniversary.  On the other hand, I was at the beach enjoying time with my family.  Celebration enough.

No, I won’t be writing about the seven deadly sins – maybe what led to my heart attack.  Instead,  a quick post to highlight the 7 things I am most grateful for on this lucky anniversary:

  1. Being alive
  2. Having a wonderful family
  3. Having great friends
  4. Having a healthy lifestyle
  5. Having the ability to relax
  6. Having a job that provides for my family and I
  7. Having the experience of death

I didn’t put a lot of thought into this list and number 7 may seem a little strange.  I am sure it will evolve and grow over time – at least to 8 by this time next year. That’s it for now – Paul
