Hard to believe I've finished my 36 sessions of Cardiac Rehab for my 11/11/2011 open heart surgery; last session was 04/13/2012. I plan to return to the facility via their monthly fee, but I have to find a new job first. Wouldn't mind some other dreams/goals coming true, either...just sayin'.

Some people have likened CR to watching paint dry, but not for me. It made me a bit more "lean'n'mean". More importantly, it was fun, thanks to the nursing staff & fellow rehabbers.

Lean I'll give you but you don't look all that mean to me. Congrats on finishing the rehab.

:) Thank you, Denny! It's the new leaner/meaner me ... just maybe not as mean as I'd like sometimes...HA! Sure hope we can meet up sometime this year.
