Following up from "Ouch! What was that?"
on how 'life as you know it can change in a heartbeat'...
Last Monday Wayne went for his quarterly routine cholesterol tests.
Less than 24 hours later,
the Doctor's office called wanting him to come in immediately.
His CK (creatine kinase) levels were extremely high
showing he was having muscle deterioration.
He had to go the hospital for a bunch more tests
with an appointment to find out the results yesterday afternoon.
Needless to say...
it was a very stressful week.
Being the "what if", "worse case scenario" kind of gal that I am,
my mind was spinning.
What if I lost the love of my life?
What would I do without my best friend?
How would I go on without my Stanley?
What would become of me?
Would I become a recluse?
Would I start to collect too many cats
and become a crazy cat lady hoarder?????
there was a mix up at the hospital lab...
(are you kidding me...)
I am VERY happy and thankful to report that
my Stanley is as "healthy as a horse".
All his tests were 'normal'.
Well be assured the 7 days of worry
have taken a toll on us
so we have made plans to
'take some time and smell the flowers'
this coming weekend
and will try to keep front of mind
how quickly life can change.
