If you're watching this on video right now about one hundred eighty five pounds right now drop down to one hundred and thirty pounds and at that time my wife said your father. You need to take care of your family. I think you need to apply for life insurance. In case something happened to i applied to life insurance and the life insurance application came back to not denied coverage so i called the life insurance agent. I thought it was a mistake. I said you know. I think my paperwork must have gotten crossed with somebody else's. I think it's a mistake. And the life insurance agent said it's not a mistake in fact i have your lab results from your exam and you need to sit down and he proceeded to read off what those numbers were going up the phone later that night my wife asked me she said hey saw we got that life insurance letter in the mail everything all set everything taken care of and i said honey not exactly. We need to talk. And when i explained to her the lab result she looked them up online and really broke down and i was in denial and so the next they went to the doctor's office explained to them. What happened doctor said. No problem will run some labs to corroborate the results to see if it's the same thing. Hang tight we'll be back in an hour. Wait in the waiting room. Our later. Dr comes back grabs me by the shoulders and says mr leveque. You should be in a coma right now. We need to rush to the emergency room and they proceeded to rush me to the emergency room.
