Could we fit anymore appt's into one day?

Well, yesterday was a very busy day. I was down at Loma Linda Medical Center with about 7 hours of appt's and 2 hours driving. Ultrasounds, Mammograms, more blood tests to check hormones, a couple of hepatitis vaccs just to get started on those, the normal OB stuff....Then I went on to my meet my financial advisor. We had a very interesting conversation about my health insur, along with all the cost associated with this and what was to come...The surgery costs weren't a surprise as they were in the ballpark of what I had been hearing and reading about. This did surprise me......My immunosuppressant drugs for the first few months out of the hospital. I.E. *my prescriptions* will run about $5,000 a month. Cuts right into my cruise budget......damn $5,000 a MONTH??? We are looking into that. And I learned that I will be on immunosupressant drugs for the rest of my life. I didn't know that. If I don't take them I will die. Can you guess what bill is at the top of my *must pay* list? Yep, my health insurance. Needless to say my financial person and I have some work to do. I will be having a good friend taking over all my financial stuff when I go into the hospital and after for me.

Joe is thinking of some big work changes as well and we are trying to make some big decisions regarding that.

I was pretty tired last night. Joe and I visited, watched some TV and then he slept while I tossed and turned...(I slept in this morning)

Today I am playing catch up at home and with my Travel Agent stuff. I have a bunch of clients and friends sailing soon. Gotta get some stuff off to them and finalize some paperwork. Then tomorrow it is back down the hill for some more stuff.

I am trying to find a yoga studio to start at but am having trouble finding it open. Working on that.

My internet friend Aimee got out of the hospital yesterday *YEAH*. More about Aimee and Dave's adventures are on their Blog. All I can say about that is WOW......amazing.
