A FLOWER FOR A FRIEND





A flower for a friend. She died Monday night in her sleep. She was 56 years old. She had no apparent health problems, but did not darken a doctors door for checkups and such. You know, one of those people who does not go to the doctor unless sick. No cholesterol check, no blood pressure check, no mamogram----nothing. She woke her husband up in the night breathing heavily, an unusual sound for her. He called a son and 911. She soon died before anyone could get there. She has a single daughter, a married son and two small grandchildren. She led a very active life. A real estate agent and very active in the community. The autopsy report is not in yet. I will let you know what is found out.

A wake up call, ladies. Visit your doctor and have every test that he suggests you have. If he finds something wrong, it could just possibly save your life. In this day and time the medical field is so advanced that we are afraid that someone might find out we are sick, so we avoid going. Don't do that! Go--have the tests--live your life to the fullest and give your children and grandchildren the benefit of having you around for a very long time. When our time comes we will slide in to a skreeching halt with a smile on our face and a sweated brow shouting--"It was a hell of a ride"--but not until we are 100.

Have a great, long , life--my friends.

I am sorry for your loss. I work in the medical field, but am the worst at getting any wort of check-up. Thank you for your sweet "wake-up call".
