Kerri: 5 Years Later … Life Is Good

Five years ago tomorrow I received two coronary arterial stents at Kootenai Heart Center. I was 53 years old. February is Heart Health Month but every month it's important to listen to your heart. Heart disease kills more women each year than all forms of cancer combined. Since Feb. 24, 2006 I've celebrated five more birthdays of my own and of my daughters and grandsons, viewed 1,770 sunsets, watched a grandson graduate from high school and just enjoyed every single day of the second chance at life I was blessed to receive. Life is good/Kerri Thoreson, Main Street, Coeur d'Alene Press. More here.

Question: Do you enjoy life more today as a result of overcoming a serious injury or illness?
