I'm recuperating from a kidney infection. I went to the doctor and was given an antibiotic injection, and am now on oral antibiotics. They must be working, I feel a lot better now. My husband went to visit his family for a couple of days, so I am at home with my four cats. It's quiet and relaxing around here. I have the fireplace and all my pillows. My next door neighbors have told me they would help if I need anything. So, I am fine.
Because my husband was laid off from his job, we have to make other arrangements for health insurance. He is signing up for COBRA until he turns 65 and becomes eligible for Medicare. Suddenly, the debate over Medicare in Washington has hit home for us. It's confusing, with all the supplement plans and prescription plans from which to choose. We are in the first wave of "baby boomers". It's a whole new world for us!
