Most people don’t know that Mark has heart failure. Today we went to see his doctor to get “that word” on how this husband of mine is really doing.
Dr. Henderson said, “It seems you are is good . . . for now.” He stressed “for now “. He said “for now” several times through out our conversation. When I asked “What does ‘for now’ mean?” The Dr said, “Well, for now he is good. We watch carefully and take it one thing at a time.”
It made me stop and think. And, I didn’t ask anymore questions because: one – I already know the answers – two – I don’t want to hear the answers and three. . . I think . . . if the best I get is “for now”. . then that’s good enough for today.
