I for one am always in denial with health problems. In 2005 I had various symptoms for two weeks, finally had "hick-ups" for three days, and I FINALLY went to urgent care and was sent to the ER where a surgeon was called in quickly on Saturday night. I spent 5 days in the hospital. So, yea, my denial almost cost me my life, and not for the last time.
Last October 1 I had sever chest pains and since I am very health conscious, it couldn't be a heart attack. I was finally taken to the ER after two hours. It turned into a "100% blocked windowmaker".
That is twice I should have died. My sympathy for Urban and glad he did not hesitate.
