There is a country song by Tracy Lawrence with the title ‘Time Marches On’.
The song is about a family that through the years they grow into different people and everything changes.
Everything changes, nothing is constant and time marches on.
Here are some lyrics from the song ‘Time Marches On’ –
The south moves north, the north moves south
A star is born, a star burns out
The only thing that stays the same is
Everything changes, everything changes
It is interesting to think about everything changes, nothing is constant and time marches on.
With my health, Gary takes care of me because everything changes, nothing is constant and time marches on.
Gary is retired from the military after 22 years of service and uses the VA (Veterans Administration) system of all his health care. His home VA hospital for many years was in Dallas, Texas. When we moved last year to temporally live in Pensacola, Gary was not ready to change his location. Now that we moved my healthcare to Tampa, Florida, Gary has now changed his VA hospital to this location as well.
Gary recently has been having some health issues of his own because everything changes, nothing is constant and time marches on.
Recently Gary had an appointment with his Primary Care Manager Doctor at the VA hospital.
From that visit, referrals were placed for him to see specialists for conditions he suffers from. He rarely complains about the way he feels; unlike me. He may not have health issues as significant as me, but they are just as important. He needs to take care of himself while also helping me. I need to take care of myself while also helping him.
Because we both have changes in our body, health and lives, we recently had a conversation about us changing over the years.
Our lives are much different than what we thought they would be. Our bodies are much different than what we expected them to be. Everything changes, nothing is constant and time marches on.
(NOTE: I am expected to be released from the hospital today. Look for upcoming posts about the events of the past 11 days.)
