Around and around we go, where life stops nobody knows. You can plan and try to prepare for every eventuality.. but some of the time life does not go as planned. It's very important to have a plan-B.

We were young when we married, we didn't have a care in the world. We had jobs good times and plans for the future. Tony had a job with insurance and benefits but I didn't. We felt fine so one insurance was enough.Having babies was not that expensive then so if we did not have insurance it was ok. We had three beautiful girls. Life was good. No problem.We both smoked then but everyone did in the 50s and 60s.we felt fine. Then I got pneumonia several times so I quit smoking but Tony kept on smoking. He felt fine so no problem.

We moved to Las Vegas and got jobs but only Tony had insurance . That was enough, after all we felt fine Then Tony had to have a neck operation and we had to pay the 20 percent that was not covered. Then we had a problem. We discovered that we needed two insurances .

The three girls had their own lives so it was just the two of us.. life was good. We were driving back from visiting our daughter in Southern California to Las Vegas. Tony was driving when, suddenly the car pulled to the shoulder of the highway and screeched to a halt. The car was still rocking when Tony got out of the car and went down the embankment. He kept telling me "I'm having a heart attack". I told him to" get back in the car" We had no cell phone or anyway to call 911 for help. Anyway we finally got him to Barstow and he was well taken care of.

We had very little money ,just enough for gas to get home. We had no credit cards in those days. We thought there was no need. I called the kids and told them to come and bring money. We stayed 2 days and Tony had to stay in the hospital 5 more days before he would be stable enough to go home.. It was not long after I brought Tony home that he had 4 by-pass heart surgery. He would be out of work for 3 months. I borrowed enough for the 3 months he was out of work to pay the mortgage and when He returned to work ,We paid it back.

We've been married 55 years now and Tony has had 18 surgeries and he now has Heart failure, and pulmonary fibrosis. I have had 5 surgeries and breast cancer. No matter how you plan.. life doesn't go the way you think it will.

Plan-B

Always have a plan-B. Good insurances are a must. Have good credit so you can borrow if you have to. Be smart about your health. The body pays for all the bad things you do to it. Never take life for granted. Life happens. Love each other. That's it for now, see you again?
