The last few days have been rather eventful. There has been little time to write. When I did have time, the words just weren’t there. My mind was some where else. Chest pains finally brought my husband to the ER. Two days of tests have found he carries an enlarged heart.
It all seems rather metaphorical not in a distant, vague way but in a way that touches the sinew and muscle of a heart that is larger than it should be. It touches the sinew and muscle of the family in which we are all satellites of each other.
Fortunately, the blockage in this over-sized heart is not so severe that a stint or surgery is necessary. Nonetheless, it remains something that demands attention, a change in lifestyle and greater attention to all matters of the heart.
