In follow up to my original posting with this title I’m pleased to report my Doctor says everything is fine. This is certainly good news. The experience,however, has been life changing in it’s own way. When you are waiting for these kind of test results you begin to confront the question of your own mortality. The mind can easily take you strange and what feels like frightening places. No matter how old we are we never know what are body is doing to us. As we age, and I am aging, there is the possibility that more things can go wrong with our health than we’d like to imagine. I’m reminded of the old saying, ” If I’d known I was going to live this long I’d have taken better care of myself.” While for many of us,myself included there is truth in that, I urge you to live a healthy life with as few regrets as possible. If there is something you always wanted to do or say then get it done. Nobody knows what tomorrow may bring.
