Mom Is Home And Coffee Is On Me...!
Mom is home. Brought her home last night, after the stress test and the heart doctor told her that whatever the problem was...it was not caused by her heart! He said that her heart is fine. That's good news!
When I asked him what he thought was the cause of her problems...he said "I don't know, but the good thing is that it is NOT the heart!"
The consensus right now seems to be that it was caused by her lungs and not getting enough oxygen. She does have COPD and that may have played a big part.
What ever the cause...she feels better and is glad to be home. Her cat is glad she is home! I'm glad she's home! Now we can all enjoy being home and not at the hospital...fun-filled as it was!
In keeping with our study of the politics of the day, I offer up this little bit of fodder for the cannon! Just something to think about!
For the first time in history, the Democratic Congress will not allow an increase in the social security COLA (cost of living adjustment).
In fact, The Henry J. Kaiser Family Foundation predicts there may not be any COLA for the next three years. However, the per person monthly Medicare insurance premium will be increased from the 2009 premium of $96.40 to $104.20 in 2010 and to $120.20 for the year 2011.
Guess we now know who to vote for in next year's elections, right? RIGHT!
Now, my friends, le's get some fresh coffee and sit on the patio for a bit! Supposed to be warmer this morning!
