Thank you so much Msobstinate. We are in somewhat of a holding pattern right now. The doctors we've seen agree to take a "wait and see" attitude since he is basically stabilized. I think as time goes by my anxiety over the situation will diminish...he's taking it in stride for sure but that his his personality...lol ( sadly..I was born a worrier and a worrier I'll always be..)
To make matters worse..the poor guy now has a kidney stone! He's hoping to pass it in the next day or two.
You are wise to not preach to others how to live their lives. There is no "one size fits all" in this game of life. No one knows another's medical history etc. The world is full of conflicting opinions even among the experts.
I think we all know our own bodies best..and you are right. Life is short..and it's precious. I just try to live it with no regrets and focus on what really matters.
There are no doubt many contributing factors to Gandolfini's death...but you know what? No one knows when their time is up. Perfectly healthy and fit people drop dead of the same thing all the time. Young basketball players go into cardiac arrest etc...
I hope that kidney stone passes quickly! That can't be much fun.
One thing I despise, when the media tries to be "first" with the story. When Gandolfini's story first broke..they implied the drinks on the bill were all his, come to find out a day or two later that was not the truth. Then they all jump in and play armchair doctor. I say it all the time, when the armchair quarterbacks anylyze players injuries......the only ones privy to that information are the player and their physician..... prime example is David Ortiz and his "heel."
One day at a time.......
It wasn't...the poor guy. At least it passed quicker than the last time he had one..that one took two weeks. He's feeling better..but he definitely qualifies for some serious TLC this weekend.
I agree with you that the media is ridiculous. Everyone's trying to break a story...and no one cares about the truth. It's doesn't pay to be a celebrity I am sure..with all those vultures breathing down your neck.
You never come across as preachy. It's good to share advice based on personal experience. That's what I tried to do with the whole David Ortiz thing and his heel. I understand completely the nature of his heel issue because I am dealing with something similar. A deformed bone in my heel places pressure on my achilles on occasion so I can wake up one morning and be in awful pain for days...then I can be fine for weeks or months. It always amazed me the people in the RS forum who knew nothing about it and were blaming it on his weight..or implying that he was out of shape.
Like I said..no one knows what works for another. Just do the best you can.
