I had some ancient tooth sealants (with decay lurking underneath) sandblasted off of my back teeth today. What a novel experience that was. Also had an MRI of my leg that took twice as long as it should’ve because they couldn’t find a vein to shoot the dye into (people, do you have any advice on how to get veins? Would weightlifting do the trick? I am getting desperate here). And (can you believe how many medical offices I visited today?), I had some way-overdue adjustments to my prosthetic limb. I am not joking when I tell you that the socket was hanging together with duct tape.
I am so grateful for health insurance. Mostly because without the funds to pay for such medical necessities I would’ve left this earth long ago.
I wish everyone had this same luxury.
PS: My cold/flu is nearly gone now and both kids’ fevers broke yesterday. Praise cheeses.
PPS: I am so thinking of getting a hand crank wheat mill just in case a hurricane ever hits SoCal. :)
