The only question here in terms of difference is where to send the bill

““I’ve actually never met anybody who likes their health insurance company. I’ve met people who like their doctors. I’ve met people who like their nurses. I’ve met people who like their pharmacists. I’ve met people who like their physical therapists. What they want is access to healthcare. And we just need to be clear about what Medicare for All is all about. Instead of paying premiums into insurance companies and then having insurance companies build their profits by saying “No” to coverage, we’re gonna do this by saying everyone is covered by Medicare for All, every healthcare provider is covered, and the only question here in terms of difference is where to send the bill.“”

eliminate all out-of-pocket expenses, all deductibles, all cop-payments. Nobody in America will pay more than $200 a year for prescription drugs

The 12:30 AM phone call

Filed under: Family, Health, Love, My Life and Rants, People I like — Scottie @ 05:37

My husband went to work last night as normal.  He left at 6 PM and texted me when he got to the hospital.   I went to bed early as I normally do.   Then I was awakened at 12:30 AM by my phone ringing with the ring tone I have set for my husband.  As it is not normal for him to call me in the middle of the night I answered very concerned.   “Scottie, this is Jeanette ( the night time supervisor for the ICU’s ) Ron has fallen, he passed out and fell hard”.  “We think it is his blood sugar and he is awake now but very confused and he is saying his hip and back is hurting really bad”.  “We are taking him to the ER now to have him checked out”.   

What do you say?  I was confused, startled, trying to process that Ron had fallen due to his blood sugar going to low and was hurt.   All I could think of was to thank her and ask her to have him call me when “…he was better”.   Ron said he was still on the floor listening to her talk to me on his phone and when she chuckled and told him my response was to have him call when he was better Ron said he just rolled his eyes.   

The gave him an X-Ray and a C.A.T. scan, did blood work.  In the ICU they gave him some glucose type syrup to bring his sugar up.   So he was in terrible pain so they sent him home.   He had been texting me on and off during all the testing from the ER as there was no way I could go back to sleep.   I offered to come get him in the van but he felt he could drive.   They offered him a very mild pain reliever or Morphine.  He can not take morphine so he just took some Tylenol.   

When he got home I brought in his stuff from the car and helped him into the house.   I got him something to eat and helped him into bed.  His left hip is really sore and he is limping, but the scans showed no break.  His back is twisted and hurts bad and I can understand that.  He is in bed now and I am sitting here with a few hours of sleep thankful it was not worse.  When he wakes up he is going to really hurt.   It is a holiday so he can not call his doctor.  I maybe able to take him to a convenient care if he needs it.  

Be well everyone.  Have a grand holiday.  Be safe.   Hugs

Jimmy Carter: A Full Investigation Would Show That Trump “Didn’t Actually Win” The 2016 Election

Jimmy Carter: A Full Investigation Would Show That Trump “Didn’t Actually Win” The 2016 Election [VIDEO]

 “I think a full investigation would show that Trump didn’t actually win the election in 2016. He lost the election, and he was put into office because the Russians interfered on his behalf,” the former president, who served between 1977 and 1981, said at a panel hosted by the Carter Center in Leesburg, Va.

Happy Ron’s morning

Filed under: Animals, Homosexual, Love, My Life and Rants, People I like — Scottie @ 11:31

We do not celebrate mother’s day here.   However I woke up feeling OK this morning and Ron was not too tired from working all night.  So we agreed to a morning plan.  He would stop at the store on the way home and get some eggs, bread, a ham steak, and some hash browns.  I started bacon and sausage.   When Ron got home I cooked us breakfast.   We have not had a breakfast together in months and have not had bacon in about five months.  I have not been interested in eggs so Ron would just make himself a small breakfast.   He was so happy.  He called it his mothers day gift.   I told him I would clean up later as the Sunday news shows were coming on, and I love the news.  But he went ahead and picked it all up and did the dishes and ran the dishwasher.   I love the glass top stove but it is a bitch to keep clean and streak free.  At some point one of us used the scrub pad on it ( unthinking ) and left little scratches in the glass.  All in all a grand breakfast of all the major food groups with a dessert of news.  Ron has gone off to bed as he works tonight.   I am in my office watching the news with both cats snoozing after they had a hand full of treaties each.   All is well in our home.   Hugs

What do you want

In the picture below is a person who was born with female genitalia.   They do not identify as female.  They do not go into a bathroom with any intent other than eliminating waste.  Peeing or pooping for those not up to 3rd grade yet.   Now I keep hearing a lot of crap from the religious right about men being in the women’s bathroom and how evil it is.  They claim people should only go to the bathroom of their birth genitalia.  So tell me, which bathroom should this person use?
