Boot and check mail, and find a newsy letter from a friend of many, many years. Soon as I read it, I knew I had to post a part of it. Her mom is old and infirm. Been quite ill for awhile.
Mom had an appointment at the doctor tomorrow.
She is on Medicaid, so they send a transportation wheelchair van to pick her up at the nursing home free. I go with them to Hattiesburg, about 30 miles away, and have to wait for them to decide to pick us up. Then we are usually stuffed in there with others not of our color. But it is free, and the only way I can get her to the dr since she can’t stand, and weighs too much to pick her up and put her in a car.
Get this. We went to the doctor last Wednesday. They usually do 2 tests, doppler listening to blood flow in her legs, and then her neck veins.
Well, since the new Obamacare that will SAVE so much money and allow EVERYONE to have free care, we can only get one test at a time done in a day. NOW, we have to go THIS Wednesday so they can put a stethoscope to her neck and listen to veins and blood flow. Then NEXT Wednesday, go back for the doctor to tell us to come back in 6 months. More dr money from medicaid, more transportation costs, more aggravation of just having to move Mom in the cold and rain, and the day is shot waiting for doctors and transportation.
I believe we are in for a rude awakening with this new freebie Obamacare.
Oh, did I tell you (I think I did) that husband and I got Concealed Carry Permits. We are going back to take a class to get Enhanced Carry where we can carry guns in places we couldn’t before. Gotta get ready for all this to be stripped away from us by the gun haters!
Wow - must look into that Enhanced Carry (probably not available here) - Hubby is looking at getting instructor qualified.
