Living to 100
Posted By Trish Vradenburg On September 1, 2011 @ 9:00 am In Health Talk | No Comments
Simple and revealing; my results show that I am going to live until 101-years-old.
Well, congrats to me. I am almost middle-aged again. My husband is going to live to 98. So we’ll have a big party to celebrate when I’m 93 and he’s 97. What to wear, what to wear? I bet I’ll have a dozen great grandchildren and I’ll know every name and every birthday and… wait a minute…
What if they haven’t cured Alzheimer’s yet? What if I reach 101 and don’t even know who my husband is? What if my grandchildren and great-grandchildren only know who I was, not who I am?
That cannot happen. It is up to us NOW. We have to make Alzheimer’s a distant memory, not us. Let’s find a cure. We can do it!
So I think I’ll wear a satin dancing dress with seed pearls and lace. I’ll probably still have to go on a diet. Sigh…
