I'm Setting Sail... With Captain Morgan....

I wrote a Scathing Blog...about Mom's and My Journey...today....
But...Thought it over... as Broken...as I was today..witnessing it.... I am Thankful...to Live in The United States of America... Tho....things are far from perfect...Mom...got her needs met... {A Blistering Trial...} none the less... her surgery went well.... and everyone was kind...and I am...So Thankful...
Just got Mom's Supper...for her... and...she downed it all... A Huge Blessing....
I am home....and...Setting Sail....with Captain Morgan...and Egg Nog... my food...for the day...
It's been grueling... today.... I am concerned, about our health care.... and...we all should be...we will all be, in the place of our elderly...sooner than we think.... Those who think we don't need a health care program....visit a nursing home...or hospital.... it's a real.... eye opener...
I can't afford health insurance... if I have, what Mom...or Peg has...I don't want to know... I say...just shoot me...and bury me, with my Beloved Thoroughbred, Admiral...out in the field....
It's scary times...folks...
God Bless Us...
Everyone....

AHOY MATEY ! God love the Captain ! hope you two sailed away to some sweet dreams ! Glad things went well ! I too have no insurance so I cant take the meds I need , welcome to the good OLE USA , where we gladly feed , clothe and provide free medical care to other countries and their peoples , while our people are out of work , starving and suffering with no medical care ! I love this country but sheesh its a shambles at this point ! Have a great day ! hugs lilraggedyangie

I'm with ya....as I sat in the waiting room{wing} all new...with a 40 foot arched ceiling...beautifully furnished.... I wondered...why.... if they had all that money...to pay architects...and designers... why they wouldn't keep a 91 year old, blind woman...who had just undergone 3 cancer surgeries.... and is so feeble... her insurance isn't good enough...for that....so...at 8:30 last night... they hoisted her, into her wheelchair....and onto a bus... after being there, for 8 hours...and...no food...{they had pudding...and crackers...}for 24. I was sad... but...glad... she was able to be helped...
We have dems, who give money...that is missused... and repubs. that say are there no work houses...no jails?.... wish the Tea Party...would have seen things...like the founders did... it's all sad...
Thanks for the comment...
Love to You...

Barb- I hear ya. When I antiqued full time, I had to buy a policy from Farm Bureau. $350/month- and that was a good price because I am in good health and no maternity policy necessary :) Some months, it was tough to squeak that out. Now I have a policy paid for by the school district, but a 45 minute doctor visit was charged out at $324/hour. wow. No wonder so many have and have nots. The haves would be amazed with what the havenots live without.

I am always dancing on a razor blade...oh my...
Money is most...always tight...and...I never know where I will be at... at the first of the month... could be good...and I'll get caught up, for the last two bad months...then...down to the wire, again...
so...350., may be impossible....on top of everything else... I have looked for a job, over the years, for insurance... but, with my qualifications... they will work me 38 hours... not full time... no insurance...
The Good Lord...has kept us mostly healthy... I have severe asthma, and an Amazing Doctor....who looks out for me, when I need him...other than that...unless I'm Really Afraid... I don't go in... for anything... My friends tell me, the mam, and pap tests are free... but what then? I truly...don't want to know...what could I do about it? I don't want John to lose everything he has worked his whole life for...to be taken away...
So...Shoot me.... and Bury Me...Beside, Old Admiral...The Best Horse...Ever... and my Polly... when it's her time.....We'll see ya...at The Pearly Gates! {I hope...}
Love to Ya...Anita...
Merry Christmas...and Happy New Year...
