Saturday, I had an almost pain free day...unfortunately that has not been the case since then. Sunday night I went back to sleeping in my zero gravity chair to see if it made a difference...it did not.
I am no doctor, but I am almost certain my leg pain has something to do with my bad back...that would be the lesser of two evils. It could also be Deep Vein Thrombosis from the symptoms, as I recall a former co-worker almost died from it.
As my regular readers know, I have no health insurance. Even with the so called Obama Care, the monthly premiums are more than a car note and would take a big bite out of my monthly budget. Supposing I bought the insurance my deductible (I would go with the cheapest one) would be $6,000.00 a year. I know that sounds like a lot but from my experience with my mother's medical bills, it would easily take a hospital stay of one day to meet that.
The problem is that we have no specialists in Del Rio, I would have to go to San Antonio or San Angelo, Texas. The same thing applies if I go to Mexico for treatment. There are no specialists in Ciudad Acuña, Coahuila would have to go to the capital city of Saltillo, Coahuila or Monterrey, Nuevo Leon.
I can not forget that in my absence who is going to take care of my mother? For that matter who is going to take care of me?
Like I said, I have been doing a lot of thinking but I have yet to arrive at a workable solution.
Good night. May you all have Terlingua Dreams.
