Wrapping up my Gifts already.....

Thursday, July 16, 2020

When making this "big move" and because we are nearly 70, me my birthday is September, and 75 my husband's birthday will be in December, we had to make several major decisions.

One of the biggest for us, getting the best doctors, that we can feel comfortable with, and keep us in the Best Of Health with proper care on our part. So today was our first step! During 1998-2005, we lived in this state, but also during that time, my husband was diagnosed with colon cancer in May 2003, Mother's Day! He was nearly dead on the table, revived, continued with chemo treatments, had a colostomy bag, which was able to be reversed almost a year later and here he is, 17 years a cancer survivor. His doctors at that time, always made us feel comfortable.

Today, we had our first appointment with that same Oncologist. Believe me, we are excited! Not only did he add us as his patients, but set us up with ALL the Doctors we will need, ordered our RX's, and we felt such a sense of "security" that we are in the right hands.

So, I am making this comment to you....Don't let your health be an afterthought! Make those appointments, get them on the books, even during this trying time....They will be MADE WHEN IT IS SAFE TO BE COMPLETED! But the peace of mind, the "best GIFT" you can give yourself, to your family, to your loved ones.....THE GIFT OF HEALTH! Knowing that your are being mindful of your body, your mind, your spirit! I call it the BEST GIFT EVER!!!!

    Great blog 👍 and very important. Right now many people have stopped going to the doctor or getting their children immunized. It's safe with the precautions the offies are taking. Stay on top of your health 💪🙌
