Memorable Birthday Moment

My doctor and another colleague and several nurses and other staff people came in my room bearing jello with a candle in it and sang happy birthday to me. I thought that was very sweet - and a good way to end a 3 day fast.  :-)

Oh dear! Hope you're feeling better now...silly doctor not to have insurance and ignore your symptoms until they become critical... Will the insurance cover you for a pre-existing condition...I hope so!

Have a good Christmas and leave all the butter, cream and pastries alone and stick to bland foods... yeah well...at least try! (Although I'm sure you will since this has been a warning across your bows...or even bowels....he he he!)

Merry Christmas!!

Thanks, dear. And yes, I won't be able to enjoy the eggnog this year. :-(. It was quite the warning this time.

Our healthcare system kinda sucks. Unless my employer provides health insurance I'm unable to buy any because I am actuarially unsuitable - insurers don't want to cover me. I literally couldn't buy an individual policy. Things are changing with the ACA, but it's not a perfect fix. It will at lease force the 3rd part payers to cover preexisting conditions, so that's good.

Happy Christmas! Eat some sweets for me!

Hope your birthday has been as delightful as possible, and that you have a splendid Christmas.

Unbirthday party in March? Everyone needs something to celebrate in March that doesn't involve green beer.

Thank you so much, dear. And I'll take the unbirthday party idea under advisement. Once my gallbladder's out I should definitely celebrate!
