Cardiac Rehab

The Cardiac Rehabilitation Program called me up to set up an appointment.  I am beginning to think that I am a pretty atypical patient.  Their program starts with a five minute walk with heart monitors on.  I explained that I had just completed sixty minutes on the treadmill, maxxing at 3.0 mph.  You could hear the shock from the far end.  I get the impression that their average patient, before heart surgery, received most of his exercise from deep frying marshmallows.

I had rehab for my first stent, but for the second stent they said they dropped the program because it showed no clear results.

I did the rehab--and I learned stuff that didn't have anything to do with treadmills.

Their average patient probably smoked while deep frying those marshmallows.

You can deep-fry marshmallows?

I work in cardiac rehab and I would be so delighted to have you. I do love marshmallows too. Well done, stay comfortable and fit....
