Peachy Beachy Keen

I get hubbers to take me to the lake as often as possible. I love to sit on the beach and watch the sun set. I have always enjoyed being at the beach, even more so now, because....

Lake Huron, Ontario, Canada

I am recovering from heart and aortic bypass surgery. It's a long arduous process. It's also painful. I have a 14 inch incision from my mid sternum to my pubic bone (I had 59 staples). I also have a gangrenous baby toe, (that will be amputated in the near future), and severe nerve damage to both feet,(that will never go away), as a result of the blood supply being cut off from my hips down, when my aorta was totally blocked. 

Being at the lake, soothes my soul, and banishes my anxiety. I truly believe the atmosphere and energy helps my body heal. And...wow, isn't that a gorgeous sight!

  1. I am so glad that you could have the surgery - and that you have some a beautiful place to recover and heal in. Heart balm at its very best. I hope your next surgery goes well - and is the last.
