had a conversation with someone a few days back about health, or lack thereof…

they were waiting on appointments and test results and the stress was nearly unbearable…

made me think back to some of our difficult times…

November/December 2008, when George had bypass surgery… the stress leading up to the actual surgery was huge… the struggles with the healthcare system were daunting… 

advocating for yourself or your loved one takes courage, patience and persistence… and you can’t give up… 

once we got to the actual surgery he responded beautifully… 

August 2010, when I had a procedure for a blocked bile duct which led to a very bad bout of pancreatitis and ended with gall bladder surgery… for six weeks he came to see me every morning before work and looked after everything on the home front…

now I have memories of those times and although some of them are difficult they also remind me of what a special life we have been blessed with… reminded me of this blog I wrote in February of 2013…

one step at a time…
