LUCKY.

That's how I am feeling lately. Here's proof.

With Don's recent pulmonary blood clot, we were lucky he had a doctor's appointment that day. Since that happened, something I never would have thought possible, two more than coincidences have occurred relating to the same thing. An acquaintance of my boss's died this past weekend from what? A blood clot. Today in the news, there was a story about a 15 year old star athlete who died from what? A blood clot. So yes, he knows he is lucky.

And then there's me with my bike accident. Lucky to not have been killed. Lucky to not be crippled or something worse. And in the last few months, I have read or heard about several bike accidents where the cyclist was killed. All local (local meaning this side of the state). So, do I feel lucky? Yes, lucky is how we both feel right now. No other explanation. Just lucky. Thankful. Grateful. Makes me wonder what's in store for those of us with luck.

Sometimes the blessings are hard to see, but that doesn't mean they aren't there!

Oh my goodness. I am just catching up. I am so sorry that you have gone through all this but you are right, he is so lucky to have caught it. It sounds like he was deteriorating quickly and this could have been disastrous. They will get the coumadin worked out so that it is not such a burden, just something that you do everything in moderation. You can still eat the yummy stuff, just not as the whole meal, for instance.

I have thought alot about your accident too. It is what scares me about the bike. So many bad accidents that don't turn out very good. I'm so glad you are okay and there for him now that he needs you. Please take care.
