But if you'd care to read this too, I'd be honoured.
This will, unfortunately, be another short post. I don't like that; it seems to be getting to be a habit.
I have to confess that sometimes I do something really, really stupid. The illness and subsequent surgery (that went badly wrong) that precipitated this mess took place before I married barbara...in fact, while I was visiting her in Indiana while we were engaged (at the time I lived in Texas).
We were visiting a museum, and I collapsed. She took me to her hometown hospital, where the advice was to have my gallbladder taken out, immediately.
Unfortunately, my insurance said they wouldn't pay, that I had to be stabilized and flown home to see an in-state octor.
Barb wanted to fight it, but I demurred, and the rest is history. The surgery took place in Texas, was botched, which led to the scarring of the pancreas and the pancreatic duct, which led to chronic pancreatitis for several years...and thus, malignancy.
So I think back...what if?
What if I had heeded Barb's advice? What if that surgery would have gone well?
How would life have been different?
And what if I continued that stupid line of thought?
Yes, I should learn from it - always take Barbara's advice!
But wondering how life would have been different is a bootless exercise, an can only cause harm.
I am where I am. There's no reverse gear in life
For a musical change of pace, how about, straight from Ireland, The Corrs with Breathless?
I do ask that you be patient with my slow replies to your comments (which we treasure). I'm trying to stay caught up.
Still hoping to get the new and improved version of Blessed Are The Pure Of Heart up and running in the near future. Just haven't had the energy to do it yet...but if you would like to read it, please say so in your comment and I'd be glad to send you a PDF (which should fit your Kindle).
Marley update... been moved to a sanctuary, and Bay County will revise their 'dangerous dog' codes.
If you can, please do leave a comment. I am trying to answer all, and I am failing, but please know this - I read and treasure each one.
Below are my recent releases on Kindle -please excuse their presence in the body of the blog. I haven't the energy to get them up as 'buttons' in the sidebar. You can click on the covers to go to the Amazon links.
