Life is Short

My boss' husband had a heart attack on Sunday while he was out running.  It was all of 8 minutes from the time his Fitbit recorded him last moving until the ambulance got there.  He is 52, a runner, coach of the cross country team, seemingly very healthy.  They announced today after numerous meetings with the neurologist this week that they will be donating his organs.  My heart just aches for the entire family.  Hug your kids, tell your spouse you love them cause you just never know.

  4. Wow! An incredibly similar thing happened to my cousin a couple of years back, at around the same age. He left a wife and two middle school kiddos behind. Apparently he had a heart defect since birth that was never detected. People die every day, but this guy was a really incredible person and it just makes me scratch my head sometimes. You're right, we just never know.
