I really appreciated hearing from all of you about the absurd farce that is the health care/insurance system in America. To summarize the solution: Register. Learn about the candidates. Vote for change. Hold the elected officials accountable.
(Why do I think I will be ranting about this again?)
Yesterday I got up close and personal with the health care system as I spent all day and part of the night with my mom as she went through various and sundry procedures in an attempt to make blood flow through her body. It was a hard day for her and she rocked it. She kept her sense of humor and when they finally let her eat, she ate enough for three linebackers. Best of all, she did not die. Good work, Mom! She was treated at St. Joseph’s Hospital in Syracuse. I was very impressed with every single person there; from the guy who pushed her stretcher to all of the nurses on 5-2. Thank you all very much!
Today was mostly spent recovering from yesterday. Tomorrow: back to work.
Other good news: I bought new running shoes today!!! Woot!!!! In related news, there might be hope for me after all. And even more good news, we’re having sushi for dinner. Must go make fire-breathing wasabi.
