  • What's Important

    I had a serious wake up call yesterday - my husband suffered a heart attack and needed surgery. It made me stop and think about what matters in my life.

    Much as I love poker, my family will always come first. I had no problem sitting out that tourney that I was doing so well in, I dropped everything as soon as he had a problem. I might not be around much for a while, just wanted to let everyone know the situation.

    The prognosis is good, no need for too much worry, but at the end of the day, poker is a pretty trivial thing when it comes to life and death situations. Treasure your loved ones, they are the most important in your life.

    Glad to hear he's doing well, joy. Definitely do treasure the ones you love; poker can be a hobby and a source of income, but it can't replace the people who make our lives so special.

      Life tends to grab us hard every now and then.

      Hope hubby is on the mend, and you're soon back to the poker wars.

                            Hi Joy,

                            So sorry to hear that your hubby was taken ill but happy to hear that he will be well again soon.

                            As you say poker and a lot of other trivial things in life are not as important as family and health.

                              Hi Joy!

                              Sorry to hear this and hope that it will all be worked out.

                              It sounds to me like you DO have your priorities straight. Be sure to always to keep them that way. Poker's a great game, a profession for some and a great way to meet a bunch of great people... but.... family, espeically a husband, wife or children need to come first.

                              Hope that he'll be back at things again soon and hope to see you at the tables again soon too.
