New Adventure

Last month my husband had to have a heart stint put in for a major blockage. So they strongly suggested that he take cardio therapy. Well he has been taking it for 3 weeks now but we found out that our insurance plan actually pays for us to belong to a health club for free!
So we joined the club Saturday and we start our first session tommorrow morning. My kids and grandkids have laughed so hard over this. They told us we need to take pictures and send them to funniest home videos.LOL But I told them that when we get fit and trim, the last laugh will be ours.
Most of you know that I have bad lung problems. Most of the problem is due to severe allergies. I am allergic to almost everything. And my reactions are so severe that I have to take epinepherine shots and breathing treatments to breathe again. And I have these attacks so frequently that my lung power is way low.
The program is called Silver Sneakers.LOL My kids think this is hilarious. But this program is structured for older people with health problems so they start at a very slow speed and let you work your way up. I am hoping and praying that not only will this help Chester with his heart, but it will strengthen my lungs also.
So wish us luck with our new adventure and if I make it, I will let you know how it goes tommorrow.LOLOLOL Until next time...

Good luck, Sweetie,
keep us posted on your progress. We need something like this but unfortunately are at that period between no insurance and Medicare. It will only be a few years for us.
