Later this month I celebrate my 66th birthday. Since my close call with death following my brain-bleed in September 2013, I have felt far more vulnerable.
With luck and a full recovery, I could live for 20-25 years or more, but on the other hand I could face death at any time. My father died at 68 and his dad at 64, both of heart related conditions. Thankfully heart and health care are better nowadays.
At one time I felt as if I would last for ever. Now I feel older and know that I have a limited life remaining. Whatever the future brings, I hope I don't waste my precious years to come. I have lots more living that I want to do.
