I had a relatively quiet day. I did office work and met with my financial planner. Later in the evening, I emptied the waste baskets and took the trash cans to the curb for trash pick up in the morning.
I received a phone call from the clinic in the afternoon, telling me that my primary care physician is no longer available and my appointment with her, scheduled for tomorrow afternoon, needed to be rescheduled with another doctor. I was not happy to hear that, but this is not the first time I've had to change doctors. My appointment, with a new doctor, is now scheduled for next week.
I had a phone call from one of my cousins, as well. Her daughter's baby was born prematurely, but both mother and baby are doing well, although the baby hasn't been able to go home, yet. My cousin also told me that she and her husband had been in a car accident, last week. Fortunately, no one was hurt, although the car was badly damaged and the airbags never deployed!
But later in the day, I received news that one of my second cousins, who was my age, perhaps a few months older, died of cancer, on Friday. Her older sister, who sent me birthday greetings, said she didn't want to tell me on the day because it was my birthday.
I also found out that a friend of mine suffered a major stroke while visiting her younger daughter and baby granddaughter, who live in another state; her older daughter, who is a nurse, has flown out to be with her. I spoke with my friend's niece and she said she'll keep me informed. At her request, I called another mutual friend to give her the news.
I have felt sad since I heard the news of my cousin's death and my friend's stroke. Life is so fragile, isn't it?
I am grateful for:
- The sunny, warm days.
- I was able to get another appointment with a different doctor.
- No one was injured in my cousin's car accident.
- My cousin's daughter and grandson are doing well.
- My friend is receiving excellent medical care.
