Lets see when my mother was about 72 she got the most pernicious type of uterine cancer. She had a hysterectomy, chemo and was cured. At about 84 she got breast cancer, again, the type most likely to spread. She had a mastectomy and chemo and was cured. At 92 she broke her hip and it was replaced. Six weeks later she was walking without a walker or cane. Its hard for me to keep up with her when she shops and shes now 95.
Since I was a child she did exercises for an hour just after rising in the morning. Breakfast was on the table and lunches packed by the time I got up. I asked her once why she exercised so hard and she said, I dont want to depend on anybody when I get old. I want to stay active and productive until the day I die.
We just had a great Christmas. I cant tell you how grateful I am to have her still in my life. Are you telling me that if we go to Obamacare that everybodys parents will most likely die when the first treatable illness hits? What a tragedy for all the families who will unnecessarily lose their loved ones decades earlier than they would if we didnt have Obamacare.
A friend from England told me, If you have a serious problem, you pack off to the United States where it can be treated in the same day. Otherwise you flirt with death. So much for socialized medicine.
Thank you for sharing your grandmother's story with us. Looks like you come from a strong gene pool; hopefully you inherited from her side of the family.
God bless you grandmother and may she and all your family be blessed with a Healthy and Happy New Year!
