Will work for premiums

I went for my regular doctor's appointment yesterday.  I appear to be healthy enough for surgery.  That's good to know!  I did get a muscle relaxer to help with the muscle spasms I'm having in my leg.   I took it as soon as I got home yesterday and then by 7:00 I was toast.  I took the rest of my medicine and went to bed at 8:00.  I didn't remember another thing until 5:00 this morning!  I had a message to call the clinic this morning to get the results of my blood work and my A1c had improved greatly since my last test.  Down to 6.3.  At least that is on the right track.

Ron saw the oncologist yesterday.  I couldn't go because of my appointment but he's on the wait and see track again.  There were a cluster of nodules in his right lung that were new.  The report read it could be inflamation but could not rule out malignancy due to his history.  The good news is that it will still buy us enough time to get through my surgery.  His next scan will be June 30th.

While looking down the road at retirement and health care costs Ron and I have decided we will probably just get scooters and sit on the street corner with signs that read, "Will work for Part B premium".  Who knows, maybe we will get a taker.

At least you have a plan. I am totally confused by my plan B, which was changed by the company after I bought into it. Fortunately for me, I do not have many prescriptions at this point.
