People need to stop getting older and getting sick…. and dying!!
Our friend Doug, of Doug and Brenda, passed away last night!! Possibly a heart attack. Long story short….got very sick Friday night, ambulance called rushed to emerg, in ICU immediately and on life support. He was 65. For godsake Thursday we were on the phone and emailing stuff back and forth about the trip we were planning for the Spring!!!
First it was my BIL (Ken’s younger brother). 64. A heart attack last weekend – one valve impacted, 2 stents put in. Home now with some major dietary and lifestyle changes in the works. A wake up call for him and everyone else!
Then my friend Heidi 63, passed away a week ago Sunday. Heart attack/congestive heart failure.
A girl I worked with for many years 68 passed away on Tuesday. Stroke or heart attack have not heard all the details yet. She was one of my travel buddies when we were working a big project with an Alberta company years ago.
My exSIL, who has been doing great. Got the all stable on her last CT scan but since just after our trip to Calgary she’s been getting continually more and more nauseous…..her Dr is sending her for a brain CT scan on Thursday….they’re concerned that there may be mets. I sure hope not because she’s been an incredibly strong person all through this and does not need one more thing on her plate.
This all weighs so heavily on my mind. All of these people were just fine, or seemed to be, two weeks ago and now????? As everyone gets older I think we start to expect stuff to happen but not all in one week and none of these people are really “older” to me!
Just why? This has been such a horrible week. I want to take my phone and just throw it away…..no more please.
