Of wellness and the end

I have been recently working towards making sure I am properly managing my health issues. I am diabetic, I have a heart condition, and I am hypertensive. All these were unfortunately passed on genetically from both sides (maternal and paternal) So been seeing a lot of Doctors recently, up until November came and my Mom had a heart attack. I was supposed to be scheduled for an angiogram to check for any blockage in my arteries. I had to brush that aside to take care of my Mom.

It have been a scary ride. She was confined in the ICU for 5 days and then regular hospital room for 3 days. She went through angiogram, angioplasty and two sessions of dialysis. After a week, back again at the hospital due to water in her lungs. Hopefully, she gets discharged tomorrow as the recent xray show full regression. Now I'm afraid it's my turn. I have gone through a lot in the past. Two major surgeries, one for my adrenal gland and another to remove one kidney. Now the heart is a different matter. And I am scared to go through what my Mom went through.

I have always thought that my Mom will outlive me and not the other way around. She was always conscious about her health and careful on what she eats. So it was really a big shock to us that she went through this ordeal. I guess these days you can't tell who is healthy and who is not. Look at Isabel Granada, she looked so fit and in the pink of health. Who would've thought right?

I don't want to sound morbid, but I really think we all should prepare for our "end". It's reality and all of us is going towards the end of our life's journey. I want to prepare for mine....
