…won’t fix my father’s health. How ironic that a man dedicated to daily workouts, cuisine lean and devoid of sugar or fat, and rigorous activity should be aflicted with an intestinal blockage. His recovery from the colon surgery, of course, was phenomenal because of his outstanding physical condition however the problem was more than a constricted bowel . Despite all the “clean” living and obsessive exercise, my dad was diagnosed with cancer. Had he followed Katie Couric’s advice and had a regular colonoscopy, the cancer might have been detected much earlier preventing its spread to his liver. His invincible spirit instantly felled with his physical health. Dad’s greatest fear is that he won’t be able to work and to participate in life with clarity and energy.
Suddenly all that seemed important before is put into perspective.
