Dream Interruputus: In California we have trees going into their 4000 and5000 years of life and still thriving. We have women living until 110 years and beyond. They must be the stronger or chosen sex for long lives. Men are punyâ€¦when it comes to the opposite sex. They leave too many widows to carry on. Me I am going into my second century of life and looking forward to a dream of living 110 yearsâ€¦however, before my 101[SUP]st[/SUP] birthday; however, it was terribly interrupted. Thursday, December 8, 2016â€¦I found myself on a hospital bed - short of breath. [do they call that heart failure?] Four days, being poked, checked, blood pressured, and countless other testing. Three hours of sleep in four days isnâ€™t good even in a hospital environment. No way was I going to miss my planned 101[SUP]st[/SUP] birthday that had 20 people including meâ€¦on December 11, 2016. Tried to call my doctor Thursdayâ€¦their whole phone system is loused up to a degree that drives you madâ€¦let alone a kid like me who just came home from such an ordeal. No luck; should have a visiting nurse every so often. Maybe by tomorrow I will have better luck getting through and arranging things. I can only say while itâ€™s good to be aliveâ€¦sometimes you go through too much stuff to be connected to get the proper help you may need. Is my 10 year Dream Interrupts shattered?
