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.
I'm sorry she had to go through all of that, it must've been very frightening.
Saying extra prayers for you guys.

Good afternoon, everyone? What are you all up to? Nothing going on here. I've just been doing some things around the house and enjoying alone time, with my coffee!

How is your day going so far. All is well here. Trying to figure out what I am going to do for dinner. Any suggestions??? I'm sure one of you can give me one!!! As much as I pin on Pinterest, you would think I would never have a problem.

What's your plans for the rest of the day/tonight? Nothing planned here. I will be spending it here at home, hanging out with my sister and the kids. I'll be heading back to work tonight.

Well, I am off to change the wash and read some of the boards. Hope you are all having a great day! Praying for any of you, your families, and furbabies who need prayers. God Bless and keep smiling! Talk soon!

Me too!

I hope everyone is having a good week. I honestly don't know how it can be Wednesday already! My eldest son is off school today with a cold. My youngest and myself are still getting over ours. It is raining and cold here today. Think those few warm days we had last week was probably our summer LOL.....

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

Still praying for you all, feel better!

Wow!
It -- Is -- Here.
The half-way point to Christmas Season 2013!
Days to the Season: 182
Days to Christmas Day: 224
Need we say more?

Well, Carl thinks so!
Since the half-way marker falls on 'Pines open house Wednesday, that becomes this week's theme.
Everything at the lodge is half off, from the fired twinkies right on down to the gift shop items.
Don't miss a bargain, Folks!

Last cool day yesterday. The heat makes its appearance today and right on through Friday with temps moving from below normal to above normal.
We are starting out at 59 degrees here in the capital city.

Have a Wonderful Wednesday, Everybody.
See you at the 'Pines!
Yahhh!!! Happy Milestone Day!!!

Hello Sugar, I am having a cup of coffee and doing laundry too. I just fried chicken cutlets for dinner, I have to decide what else I'm going to make. My daughter has to go in to work later this afternoon so she needs to eat an early dinner. Hope you have a good night at work!
