“My heart is on fire because I am alive and grateful for every second!”
This morning I had a very early appointment to see my urologist. It was a simple follow-up appointment as she continues to monitor my high PSA levels. I’ve been plagued with high PSA levels for years and have endured 3 rounds of painful biopsies (all negative) and too many PSA blood tests & DRE’s to count over the past decade.
But that’s not the story here ……. as I sat there in the waiting room this morning I did my normal “personal fret and worry” ….. hoping all is well, and I’ll simply return for another follow-up in 6 months or so. Once I get myself calmed down, I people watch …… Wondering why they are there? Have I ever met them? What is each person’s story?
As I sat there this morning fretting and people watching, I was over come with gratitude. I am grateful for so many things, each and every day ……. not only the heart that was gifted to me by a hero …. family and friends ….. also that I have such good, caring medical providers in my life. They watch me, they take care of me. I’m thankful that I am able to go to an early morning appointment and endure my self-induced torture, that quickly becomes relief when I’m told, “See you in 6 months”.
Thank you, God!
