due to a pair of medical procedures Monday and wednesday as well as it being tax time and I have to fill out the accountant's questionnaire... So if you don't see my regular postings, that is why --- I haven't given up quite yet!

Please be patient and talk amongst yourselves until I return... and feel free to post!

Carol,

Hope all goes well. Good luck with the taxes also. I haven't started mine yet but I have most of the papers ready. I am waiting for the booklet from the accountant. Take care. I will be around!

Oh how I understand! I have a $500 deductible and I met it by the 15th of January! My insurance doesn't cover the Shingles vaccine at all. I have had shingles once and I never want to have that again and they tell me that I could get it again. UGH!! It is over $300 so I am just going to have to risk it.

I would must rather spend my money on stitching items! Off to work on the taxes as the booklet finally arrived yesterday.

Thanks, MaryFrances!

The taxes are getting to me --- the accountant changed her forms and the language is, at best, opaque!

The procedure went well yesterday --- here's hoping the insurance comany, whose challenge rsulted in this invasive test, will now pay for it, even though it isn't diagnostic for what I have! Of late, Aetna has been denying a lot of charges --- my shingles vaccine ($219!) and DH's new crowns (no sign of injury or infection --- how about one of them broke? HUH?)... so we are looking at nearly $2000 in unexpected medical bills, NOT counting that endoscopy (with one surgeon, two anesthetists, four or five nurses and all the extra charges they put on bills...)
