Highs and lows

All was right with the world.  We won entry into the World Cup.  Now one of our very, very best friends is in hospital after having a mild heart attack.  He turned 50 at the start of the year.  His wife is my sci-fi mate and my very dear friend.  BM and I will head to the hospital this afternoon to see how he is, and bring him a new supply of Lost to watch.  We're hoping for the best for him and his family.

  • Current Mood: worried worried
We're all just a bit shocked I guess. He seems to be fine, bored out of his mind waiting for the tests to be completed. My dad had his first heart attack at 45, and lasted till 70, so I logically know I shouldn't worry too much, but the heart (shit there's another bad pun) doesn't always think logically.
Unexpected sickness always has that WTF factor, and does make you worry what dysfunctional stuff is lurking inside you. Seems logical.
