Day 2256: Heartbreak to Happiness

Yesterday, I went from heartbreak (about my wonderful, trusted, and long-time cardiologist Dr. Mark Estes leaving Boston) to happiness about the kindness, caring, commitment, and competency of my new cardiologist, Dr. Munther Homoud.

While I was waiting to see Dr. Homoud for the first time, I noticed all this:

I’ve gone from heartbreak to happiness about my unusual congenital heart disorder many, many times during my almost sixty-six years on this planet.   At this point, after a miraculous and happy time when my heart reverted to a normal rhythm after my valve replacement surgery in 2016, my heart is back in atrial fibrillation for the rest of my life.  I have no heartbreak about that, only happiness because of my caring and committed team of cardiologists.

Do you see any paths from heartbreak to happiness in my other photos from yesterday?

My boyfriend Michael (who makes my heart happy  with his nutritious, delicious, low-salt home-cooked meals) helps me go from heartbreak to happiness, every day.  Last night, after a  typical heartbreak-to-happiness-to-heartbreak-to-happiness day, we danced to this:

What helps you go from heartbreak to happiness? For me, gratitude always helps.

    Bless your heart, and I don’t mean that in the snide Southern way. I sincerely mean it!

  4. wow! That’s quite the day. It must have been a heart day. My sister, who had her valve replaced a year ago in February is back in hospital with an infection – the second time since the surgery. I hope you both go from heartbreak/ache to happiness quickly. I agree with Mark B — you are a happy heart maker.

  5. I’m pleased you have found someone who can filmthose big shoes

  6. A lot of information to take in there. Nothing better for happiness than a hen in a tutu!

  7. Heartbreak to Happiness occurs slowly for me, but with patience I know the valleys won’t last and another hilltop awaits.

  8. I am glad you like the new doctor makes things so much better

  9. Mindfulness, including curiosity and joy, is definitely a way to get from heartbreak to happiness, as is laughter.

  10. Oh Harley, you’re the captain! It is you I yearn to watch sitting by the nautical star! Not Oscar! You!

  11. I’m so glad you found happiness with your new cardiologist, Ann. And I completely agree with you that gratitude is an excellent way to turn around more “unfortunate” days!
