We moved to Scottsdale about 20 years ago from the mid west, both had good jobs and we were enjoying the weather and playing a lot of golf together, which we both enjoyed. We bought a home in the old part of Scottsdale and proceded to totally remodel it. My wife became a golf monster, couldn't get enough. We had a group that played every Sat. I was the best times we ever had together. She loved golf so much that she got a job in a local pro shop, just to be around golf and the people. Then in 2008 she was diagnosed with stage 4 breast cancer. A very advanced case. She immediately started Chemotherapy, which just reduced her energy to nothing. Some days she could hardly get out of bed. The doctors put off the radiation until after the surgery, she had to have a double mastectomy. After recovery from the surgery she had to go through radiation.as much as they dare give her. I think it was 10-12 weeks. Needless to say she was not on Medicare, although she had a token policy from the golf course. The medical bills piled up and so did the credit card debt. Fran did not recover from the treatments to the point where she could play some golf and partially enjoy life until sometime in 2112. She had tremendous Neurapathy in her hands and feet. We had to wrap her arm every night just to force the fluids out because the surgeon had to take 21 lymph nodes out of 1 arm. Anyway we were able to live some sort of life with some golf until, the housing crunch hit and we had to sell our home. We hardly got a chance to enjoy it after the remodel due to her illness and my open heart surgery. So some time in 2014 or 15 she developed hip problems, mostly caused by the Chemo and radiation. So in the next year and a half she had 3 hip operations, Replacing both hips and rotating one. About the time the hip surgery and recovery was done I had a heart attack and went through 4 hospital visits and an Aortic valve replacement. By the time they replaced my valve my ejection fraction was down to less than 20%. This was the from March of 2016 to Jan. of 2017 before I was able to drive and find some work again. The in Feb. of 2017 the effects of the Chemo and radiation were attacking Fran's back. She went through 5 surgeries and 5 other back procedures in 2017. She still does not have acceptable relief. Needless to say over the last 8-10 years my golf loving wife has been seriously grounded. We had hoped to be able to play now after the back procedures, but we are totally burdened indebt and back payments to the IRS. However I am so thankful I still have my wife and that is so much better than golf. Well maybe not for her!
