    Episode 13 "One Year Later"

    To paraphrase Bobbie Gentry, more than a year has come and gone since we heard the news about my heart attack. There have been some changes in my life since then. As John Lennon might have put it, some forever, not for better, some have gone and some remain. And yet, with all of that going on, I’m still Michael E. Russo, and we’ll spend the next fifteen minutes or so discussing how life has flown on within me and without me (thanks, George Harrison) on this edition of the Creative Care Unit.

    "Let's Get Physical"

    Whenever I’ve had problems with the plumbing in my house, I either do the repair myself or I call in a professional plumber. Once the work gets done, we run the water once to make sure everything is alright. When new plumbing got installed in my heart, however, the doctors wanted to metaphorically run the water 36 times. I’m Michael E. Russo, and we’ll take a look at my post heart attack regimen in the land of Physical Therapy in this episode Creative Care Unit.

Russo, and we’ll talk with the woman who teaches about that phrase and how to deal with it, in part three of our wide-ranging conversation with massage therapist and author Kelly Bowers, on the next episode of the Creative Care Unit.
