Thanks giving Day 24

Today I’m thankful that we have insurance, and that we can get our health issues taken care of with really very little trouble at all. I found out today that my corneas are scratched – enough that they’re causing me pain and impacting my vision – and after I was diagnosed at the optometrist (and given a prescription for medicine that would cost $75) I went over to Kaiser and right to their ophthalmology department, and walked out with an appointment for tomorrow where I will most likely get a prescription for the same medicine, and it will cost my copay. I am extremely blessed to have that ability, to be seen by doctors who know what they’re doing, and to not have to go into debt to do that. It brings such a peace of mind, and I am so so grateful for that.

I am also grateful that Z’s flu shot experience wasn’t completely traumatizing for any of us – she really did a spectacular job.

  1. I’m so sorry to hear about your corneas but very thankful that you have insurance. I’m glad too that Zoe did well and hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

  2. P.S. Take care of yourself! I hope your eyes get better soon.

  3. I hope you feel better soon, dear heart, and (no politics, I promise) you really are so very lucky with your health insurance…

    Thanks Brandy, I love you. The politics of it all is part of what makes me remember how very blessed I am, I think I’d be more likely to take it for granted if I wasn’t aware of what other people struggle with.

    Auntie, thank you too! Knowing what members of your family have gone through has also made me aware- so that I am thankful. And I’m thankful that Nicholas is so much better! Did his insurance ever step up?
