I know what I'm doing. I have an appointment with the surgeon next Wednesday to sign papers for surgery. He will then tell me when he can get me in. He will need more x rays, and, the hospital will want tests. That will take time.
I got by without pain med yesterday, but, today, pain was bad enough that I had to take one. As for my arthritis pills, they aren't strictly a pain med. They are for cutting the inflammation, which then cuts some of the pain.

Well, hip is failing. Today I woke up in severe pain in left leg, and, hip. I took a pill. It's better, but, still hurts. I have checked, and, do have an appointment with surgeon on Wednesday afternoon to sign papers, and, perhaps get more x rays. I called the nurse a few minuites ago to let her know the pain has worsened.
Please keep me in your prayers.

It may be a small consolation, but at least you have the Florida climate. It could be worse with the lower temps sweeping across the nation. I ain't saying you have it made, but they are blessings to count.

Bill, you never answered my question as to if you were a Vet. VA hospitals did wonders for my brother.
Get better, Jerry

Yes I did answer. I am not a vet. I am a disabled son of a disabled vet. My father was honorably discharged. He had a severe heart attack while in the army. It was proven beyond a doubt that part of my disability was indirectly caused by that. I am able to get benefits, but, nothing else.

Thanks, everyone. I have an appointment with him Wednesday to sign papers, including for surgery, and, have more beauty pictures taken of my legs.
Not looking forward to the surgery, but, am looking forward to feeling better.

Diamond will be taken to the vet for kennel put up. Haven't called them yet, because I don't yet have a surgery date.
Monie's going to be really tight. I'll have to put her on a credit card. Ouch!!

Saw the surgeon yesterday. Their surgery dept. called me this morning with a tentative surgery date of 12-31-2015.
Time of surgery. Noon. May change. This is dependant on approval from my primary doctor, and, a blood test at doctor's office. I have set up my cable to be put on hold on that date.
I finished paying off my old hospital bill this morning, and, closed that account.
That bill was from 2013 for the cellulitis, and, was before I had Medicaid.
That bill is now paid in full.

Thanks. I hope to. Been praying for God's help, and, it's coming. Today he helped me get my stomach to finally accept a meal. Get this. Spaghetti with meaty tomato sauce.
It actually calmed my stomach down a lot. Aren't nerves wonderful??

Yessterdy, very bad news, and, a warning to you.
I joined Amarican Eldercare a little more than two years ago. This year I found out that shortly after I joined it, it was bought out by humanna, a for profit company.
Humeanna is throwing their weight around. My Oh, shoot, I forgeot what you call them, was here yesterday.... She dropped the bomb that humanna ordered almost instantly slash in hours of care provided to the elderly. Especially them with a lot of hours. I'm almost at the top of the list.
She was able to put mine on temporary hold until February due to surgery. I could lose twelve hours out of 18.
Transportation to doctors, ets., will cease.
That includes my psychiatrist, and, therapy, and, all medical doctors.
They plan on fighting this, but, were already warned the owners don't give a rat's ass. They want profits. Not care.
I'm also having trouble with the nursing facilities That were recommended that carry Medicare, and, Medicaid.

Tell her to stay away from them at ALL cost!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

They talk a good plan, but, once they've got you in their grasp, you're dead meat..............
I wish to give them the one finger salute with both fingers.....

Wish you the best Bill but it is a fact that medical insurance is on the rise due to costs associated with providing it. We have been retired for 15 years and the costs seem to go up annually with a reduction in benefits. That is life and we have not used much of the premium we have put in (thank God) relatively healthy for our age. Even insurance companies (medical/auto/life) need to make some money, they play the gamble.
I hope things go well for you.
Best, Jerry

Do you have Medicare or Medicaid? There is a big difference when it comes to what is covered.

I was not aware that one could have both Medicare and Medicaid. I hope everything works out okay for you. I'll keep a good thought.
