Thankful Thursday - Health

While I may be feeling weak and a little sorry for myself, today I am thankful for my health.  It is not my place to share others stories, but in the past few weeks and months several people who are near and dear to me have faced very, very serious (and possibly fatal) health issues.  Hearing about their struggles/challenges is a good reminder to not take your health for granted.


Our health - as fragile as this shell

  1. Indeed - you never know - I took Cipro once, for a simple UTI and went into cardiac arrest (avoid that drug, trust me). One day I was a healthy happy forty something and then I'm in critical care ICU. Fortunately other than the whole paddle me nonsense, there was no heart damage. I was only half a block from the ER when it hit and I remember walking in and saying "I think I'm having a heart attack" and that's the last thing I remember. I consider myself beyond lucky every single day.
