I had a Valentines Day Miracle

So Valentines day was a big one for me, procedure day for me. An angiogram to see if a stent would work....or if my 10 year old bypass would have to be redone. Those are the two scenerios we focused on, never even thought there might be another possibility. Shocked us all. So when they got in they could see that the bypass was completely blocked, and what they found was my miracle. There are four collateral arteries that took over for that bypass, four!!! Two from the left side of my heart (thats where the bypass is) and two from the right side of my heart. My heart healed itself. I will never have to have THAT bypass redone. I still have the disease but it can be controlled with medication, which I have been doing. The dose was raised and has taken care of the chest pain that was being caused by spasms. So does this happen often? It happens, whether or not its often I dont know, but I never heard of it before!!! We are still in shock. I believe that my work in this world is not yet done, and I believe I know what it is and am happy to say that I am living that right now. thank you to everyone who kept me in their thoughts and prayers, I believe whole heartedly that they make a huge difference!
