Life like that …

Yesterday, my friend in KL called up. She told me that her relative just passed away at 57! Just retired from the S’pore navy. He was very active, very strong and no sign of any illness.
Suddenly he complained of chest pain and was immediately rush to the hospital. While he was in the car, the pain reduced and then he suddenly pass out. He never woke up again. Post mortem reviewed that he had a massive thrombosis of the right heart, ie, a blocked artery of the right heart, or simply put it… a heart attack.
He was very conscious of his health, seldom ate outside food, cooked his own meals, played games, kept himself active. So, what had gone wrong?
Perhaps, it didn’t matter anymore… the living just need to be “ready” at all time.
Perhaps, we may look healthy but don’t forget to check the health of your heart. Heart attack is a major silence killer.

My condolences to your friend & family. Yes, life can be just like that as you put it. Sad though but we all need to be ready all the time. Life can never be predictable no matter young,old or healthy.
