Did you make that call?
Too many people who go into a doctors office for a simple medical procedure, never make it out. I write this because I can’t express enough the importance of letting the people in your life know how important they are. I also needed to just put it out there…like many things I write about, I have been there. Unknown and undetected health issues, sadly get found out when it’s too late. One example…Joan Rivers.
I had major dental surgery with anesthesia a year ago and the one thing I was mostly afraid of was being put out. I got a ride to the office and then was told that there needed to be someone there for the whole time…’in case something happened’. A friend arrived and they proceeded with surgery. The doctor admitted that he didn’t like my blood pressure numbers, but slowly started the process and I was ‘out’ quickly and it seemed like a minute later the surgery was over and I was conscious again. I healed and life moved forward.
The moral of the story…..no one knows when. There were some really awesome people that were caring and supportive….and then there were a few that……daammmmnnnn, I really thought I was valued just little bit more…..enough for a call. I didn’t need my hand held…I am pretty self sufficient. Just a call.
I write to make others think about what’s truly important in life. Did you make that call? Did you call before to give a pep talk? Did you call after to check on them? Did you, somehow, indicate that they matter to you? Make the Call…..do it….DO IT NOW!!!
