Everyone in that photo (apart from Jack, obv) is someone I went to High School with back in the late 80's



Great pics. The one with Ger is so honest and revealing.

Jack and I had a race in 2017 to see who could rack up the highest medical bills. He'd cancer and I'd a dodgy heart issue.



When I read this bit I I almost fell off my chair. I mean WHAT?

I'm so relieved to hear that you are both OK but I mean... WHAT?

Was it sudden, were you both ill at once, how/when were you diagnosed?

I'm sorry but I have an inappropriate interest in people's illnesses. tikay had a heart attack last year. (I'm sure he won't mind me mentioning it, it's public knowledge) Of course I wouldn't wish it on anyone but the story of it was fascinating.

I probably should stop talking to you actually. I sound like a lunatic. I'm going to end up getting sectioned.  

I wasn't sure if I should even post that portion of the update. Not a fan of the Debbie Downer stuff, but it is what it is. Who the feck ever came up with the 'It is what it is' thing? Seriously, that's the most ridic phrase I've ever heard.

Anyway, I was having heart trouble in Ireland back in 2009, but the docs decided I was nothing more than an uptight Yank, so they prescribed anti-anxiety meds. The UK docs agreed and carried on with the same meds. The only thing stressing me was their accusation that I was stressed. Fortunately, we're the in best American location for people with heart trouble and they snapped on to it within a year of our move here.

On the day I was brought in to the hospital to have a loop recorder implanted, Jack was stuck in the waiting room, watching the telly. On the telly was a local famous guy (Michael Stanley) talking about his brush with prostate cancer. He mentioned how a simple blood test would set you right. The following week, Jack went for his yearly physical and asked them to do the prostate blood test as they were at it. It came back positive...and then some. He'd radiation implant treatment about two months after I'd my cardiac ablation. 2017 basically sucked. Well...that's not fair. We both made it through 2017 so I suppose I should count me blessings.

Not going to lie. I've TWO people in my life who know everything. Jack and Ger. I feel bad about that sometimes, but one thing I can promise you, nothing is hidden...from either of them.

Tis ok. Even married to Jack, I still have to google most stuff. In fact, he's probably the cause of most of my google searches. He educates/calms me and I educate/liven him. Perfect match, really.

Of course you have to post that part, it wouldn't be a proper update without it. That stuff isn't exactly small potadoes

It's nice to know you're doing OK now.

Oh gosh, yeah. We're doing great now. We'd a wee spell where we motored on as if it were a 'business arrangement'. Fortunately, we both spotted the issues and talked it out so all is very much good now.

In other news, my middle daughter (Sinéad) wasn't having much to do with us. She recently accepted Jack's friend request on facebook. I know it sounds silly, but in my world, that's a jumbo big deal. She's a pain in the arse even when she loves ya.

  True story. If I didn't love them dearly, they'd be the death of me.

On the plus side, Sarah has ignored the family bs and carried on to do exactly what she set out to do. She's managed a bachelor's degree in Criminology. She's not alone. Brian somehow managed a bachelors in finance despite all his struggles and Sinéad pulled off a double in Marketing and German language. Can you believe I gave birth to that lot?! I'm still stunned by it all...

Cultural appropriation bollocks. Does this mean we should not even eat food from a different country or wear clothes not appropriate for the climate? Where do you draw the line.
