Good Wednesday morning all. Half way to Christmas season. Hot weather arrives today. Forecast to hit 80.

High school academic banquet was fun last night. Still have the athletic banquet tomorrow. With the school year about to end, we are looking forward to June 26 when leave on vacation. Once we return, I'll be ready for summer to end and fall to rush in.

We got our first taste of ObamaCare yesterday. Medicare says mom was using too many refills on her wound pump and refused to allow any additional supplies this week. With no refills for the pump, the home health nurse had to remove the pump and mom started bleeding heavily. The nurse was forced to called an ambulance for the uncontrolled bleeding. Mom spent all day at the hospital and had to have blood transfusions. She has to go back to her surgeon today to have the wound pump put back in. The surgeon says he will attempt to reason with Medicare but is not optimistic. Wonder if Medicare will realize that an ambulance ride, emergency visit, blood transfusions, and visit with a surgeon costs more that simple refills for a wound pump.

Yep! Those summer temps here are miserable!

So sorry to hear about your mom! I will be praying for her.

Bless her heart. And I'm afraid this is just the tip of the iceberg with Obamacare. Not only does all that extra effort cost more money, it's risking her health!

My wife suggested moving down south recently, I told her she could go without me because I could not handle the heat. We went to Charlotte, N.C. in July 2004. All I can remember while we were swimming is I could still feel myself sweating under water. If we were to move anywhere I would rather move more north.

Good morning and Happy Halfway!!!!

I am afraid I am starting to feel the effects of the bug, I feel lousy, but it is not enough for me to call out of work yet. My wife and JP are home today, we sent LC to preschool since he is back to normal.

I am going to go rest before work, hoping this is a passing thing.
