I just found out 2 days ago that I face a very sudden and life threatening/changing operation - I'm having a brain tumor removed tomorrow.
I might be fine - I might not - but regardless - if this gives me an opportunity to step back and workout what matters and what doesn't in my every day, then that's perhaps not a bad thing.
A message for all of us when we bitch and whine about the minutia of every person or incident that clouds our otherwise could be perfect days..... See the positive, even if it's just a weed through the footpath. You never know what life has just around the next bend.

Hope it goes much better than your worst fears.

I know exactly what you mean, I watched my wife in hospital with a near fatal heart attack, the first time they did a terrific job & did 2 by-passes, the second time a stent, she's still going. I also had the misfortune of watching a member of my house slowly die from cancer, all this stuff changes your perception of what's important & how petty people (myself included) can become & what is really important, it changed the way I look at work, leisure (especially my cycling) & life in general, it isn't something that you can explain to another, unfortunately it's something you need to experience.
