Many have asked, Why Edmonton? Don't they do valve replacements in Winnipeg?
The short answer is yes, they do valve replacements in Winnipeg but they specialize in congenital heart defects in Edmonton. As I was born with this, my cardiologist in Winnipeg knew that this is where I would get the best care and outcome. The Mazankowski Alberta Heart Institute is state-of-the-art and an incredible place to be if you have to.
It was an early morning! I was prepped up on the 5th Floor. The nurses were very chipper for it being so early. I was given a little room where I was asked a bunch of questions and given a hospital gown to put on. They never ever feel soft and for some reason, I always seem to put mine on wrong, feeling completely exposed! I came equipped with fighting words on my BluQ socks "Give 'em Hell", a gift from one of my sales reps. Check my vitals and it's go time!
By this time, they had given me something to make me feel relaxed. An orderly came to up to the floor to get me and take me to the OR and then something out of Grey's Anatomy happened. It was a surreal moment occurred while they were wheeling my bed down the halls of University of Alberta Hospital.
As they moved me across the PedWalk to the next building, I was staring up at the glass ceiling of the hospital and I could see all of the stars and just a glow of the sun beginning to rise. It was magical and calming all at once. An incredible peace came over my body. All I could think to myself was, I wish I had my phone so I could capture this moment.
Now, I know what you're thinking! She just said that they gave her something to relax her. Hmmmm...maybe it was the drugs, but I choose to see it as a beautiful moment that will not be forgotten!

I thought? "What's the big deal?"
...and then it really got me thinking. Not about painting dressers, but life! Like my dresser, we all need a little change in our lives. Some do better with change than others. Some crave change (like me) and others fight it and only make changes when they are forced too.
