My own explanation is just pure dumb luck!  I'm at around my 30 year mark.
Officially diagnosed as an "uncontrolled diabetic."  It wasn't until this
year that my body decided to fall  apart.  Well, not actually.  My heart
problems started in 1990.  But it seems like this year I've been on the down
side of a roller coaster ride.

No regrets.  I'm glad I had the party time that I did and I am working with
all my specialists to try to get me back on the party track again.

My explanation is just pure dumb luck!
