I was diagnosed with congestive heart failure on August 14, 2012. My doctors haven’t mentioned this to me, but according to various sources, the 5 year survival rate is less than fifty percent. The ten year survival rate is less than twenty percent. Not exactly great odds.
So, I have eighteen hundred days left, or less, left to live, at least statistically. It’s hard to believe and frankly more than a little frightening.
Tonight I wonder about my mark on the world and realize what a failure I have been.
1,800 days. Can I change my life in what remains of my life?
