Life is what happens…..

Life is what happens while you are busy making other plans. — John Lennon

Life is what happens…..

Monday of last week, I posted my first poem in two months (who am i). At that moment, I was feeling good, strong, and my recovery was going well. I knew I had open heart surgery on the horizon (Sept or Oct), but things were positive.

Then, my blood pressure dropped to dangerous levels.

This week, doctors have run more tests. They confirmed two arteries in my heart are deteriorating faster than they first suspected (one being the widow maker).

We are scrambling to get insurance approval, chest X-ray, EKG, carotid ultrasound, vein mapping, COVID test, and a meeting with an anesthesia team all complete.

I will do my best to answer all comments and read as many blogs as time permits.

This most likely will be my last post for a while.

Be happy. Stay inspired.

On a different note, I have updated The Man Behind The Blog. Please, feel free to drop a note there.

Brotherhood of Man

Imagine there’s no heaven
It’s easy if you try
No hell below us
Above us only sky
Imagine all the people
Living for today…

……………..John Lennon

 

Brotherhood of Man

We witness brother killing brother
Violence against children too
Nothing more repulsive than the news
Mankind really has no clue

What are we teaching in classrooms
Tolerance is currently the plan
We should educate our children on
Acceptance of the other man

Differences can be settled differently
Violence is not the only choice
Perhaps we can rid the world of hate
If we all speak up in one voice

You can choose any God or evolution
Every hawk should be a dove
We could be a brotherhood of man
Imagine one community of love

You may say I’m a dreamer
But I’m not the only one
I hope someday you’ll join us
And the world will live as on

……………………John ┬áLennon
