Fresh fruit and exercise or pills? That’s the question. (Image provided by Susan F. Adams)

Susan shared the following story about today’s feature poem: A Day In My Life of Pills

Here’s her story:

When I had my triple-bypass surgery many years ago, I was not on a cholesterol pill due to allergies. Diet and cardiac exercise was not enough. My right coronary graft plugged two different times requiring a stent X 2. My left anterior descending graft also plugged X1 (The Widow-maker). After that, two cholesterol pills I could tolerate were prescribed for me. I’ve had no more trouble.  – Susan F. Adams
