The Diagnosis…

It was an eye-opening moment. You know the kind that leaves you speechless and staring like a deer caught in headlights. That kind of moment.

I still am in shock. I mean, I’m the one who is supposed to outlast, outlive. I’m the one who is supposed to die alone in this world. That was part of the deal I made. That is not the reality.

With eyes wide open, I face the days ahead, knowing they will be shorter than expected…

    1. Based this on real life. My hubby has a rare condition that equates to an inoperable brain aneurysm. I never expected him to live this long… Nor that he could outlive me.


    1. You’ll have to wait until after I visit the doctor Nov. 2. Praying that it’s not cancer, and it’s something relatively simple to deal with.
