Two outta three ain’t bad

The surgeon told me yesterday that in all his years of experience, the three most important keys to survival, all else being equal, on the patient’s side, were:

 

  1. General health/well being
  2. A strong support network, people to help out, etc
  3. Faith in a higher power
