A heat wave with every day the heat being 10C or 17F higher than average, 5C higher than forecast, the apartment rises 5 degrees a day. The rate of heart attacks triple during a heat wave and a man with my disease who was a few years older died 8 days ago in Seattle. Our anniversary came and went, and we live out of synch, as I catch snatches of time to sleep as able. Often something simple like a drink of water can turn into 90 minutes of ‘too weak’ to drink and 'too hot' for Linda to remember, and once awake, too much pain to sleep. If I had known I would be heat intolerant, perhaps a plan for a different anniversary.
