My mom was told
I'd die very young
before my teens
so I'm told

nine siblings died young
then 3
others nearing 83

13th me
I'm still living

DNA is just basics
blood groups are different

each one for himself
brain's synapses should rebuild
a new creature
like you and me
is born to live die
till time's breeze

at one time, an ulcer ate into two arteries in my stomach. it was like a scene from "the exorcist" only, with Blood. I happened to (luckily) be at the doctor's office at the time. they rushed me to the hospital, not far away. I was dead for over three minutes, before they could revive me. oxygen deprivation caused some damage. I had to relearn to do a lot of things. and it effected my short term memory. thankfully they have therapy for that. may you enjoy a very long life with much happiness!

*hugs, Cat

but glad you recovered fast
I have lived long to last

salute all Neo
Safe life no strife be your choice
