Dont Blame Me

I voted for the other guy...

Sitting here just thinking about how our world is changing before my very eyes is heartbreaking.
I'm not so much worried for myself, but more so worried about the future of our world for my children.

I have spent the last few days away from my computer, TV and radio. For the simple fact that I just cant bear the idea of what is happening.

Yesterday ( Monday ) I had to make a phone call to our family Doctor to check in with them after Miss Chloe's ER visit last Tuesday ( that's a whole different story ). Our poor doctor was running around like a chicken with his head cut off worried about the future of his practice.

Once that phone call was over I myself was headed over to see my Doctor for my yearly 2 years late. I know how bad am I? Anyway I'm at high risk for breast cancer I figured that yesterday I was going to be planning on making an appointment for my first mammogram.

To my surprise...

Guess what that is no longer an option for me until I am 50.

Funny thing that my grandmother was diagnosed long before she turned 50. So I guess that I'm just a sitting duck waiting until I'm 50 like a ticking time bomb for breast cancer. To top it off if I happen to come across a lump before I turn 50. I will have to see not only my normal doc, but then she will send me to another doc to check out the same thing followed by one more doc and they all have to have decide that a mammogram is the best thing for me before I can get one.

WHAT THE HECK...

Second thing that worries me just a bit. I have a small child who was born with 3 congenital heart defects who is one of the lucky one who gets to have one of the worlds best heart doctors in our back yard willing and wanting to see us anytime we even have a question about her heart.

She has 9 months to go before she needs to be seen by him again.

I have been told that if I want her checked out by him one last time I need to get on it. Because we will end up loosing him as our doctor too.

WHAT THE HECK...

So I'm going to spend the next I don't know how long running around getting everyone seen by the doctors we love and trust before our health care becomes a total mess.

The other thing both Scott and I are thinking about is baby #4.

We have always talked about one more, but the other thing we really want is that my obgyn be the one who all my children. So it turns out that we might be embarking on a new chapter in our lives sooner than later of becoming a family of 6. Lets just hope that we will only be a family of six, but I will need to come to terms with the fact that my body doesn't want to allow me to have babies on my own anymore. So we will be entering a new chapter in our lives.

With the meds that I will need to start to be able to have another child could possibly lead to twins. And the odds double for me because well twins run in my family.

On a funny note Mr. Montana and I spent the day talking about what happens if we mix our babies up and ways to make sure it doesn't happen. For whatever reason he loves the idea of twins, but he isn't one to get up in the middle of the night nor is he the one who would have to share his body with them for 9 months nor does he have to give birth to them either.

Well that's my rant for today...

Until Next Time,
MOM

You TALKED to a Dr. on the phone - that's DEFINITELY going by the wayside and I can't tell you the last time I talked to a dr. on the phone ... years!!!
So did you hear that the A/G is entering a multi-state suit against the Feds on this? We'll see where that goes as The Queen is opposed - but she didn't vote for him - so maybe she has nothing to say about it?
The best thing to find out if you have any breast cancer b4 you are post menopausal WHEN the breasts turn to total FAT is ultrasound - see if they would cover that. Ultrasound is MUCH less expensive and less evasive.
I meself - although breast cancer doesn't run in my fam - but I've found two lumps which were asperated - will NOT let them do mammograms on these b'c I FED BABIES WITH THEM and I think that exposing them to ANY radiation is not something that encourages GOOD health ... I've been pink and red slipped by Everett Clinic and I told my Gastroenterologist - I won't do it and why and he said - ya - my wife's the same way. So do not FEAR! You will probably not even be touched by it... I mean you drink Pomergranite juice - that MUST help - right?
The breasts are part of the digestive system - if that's running good - you should be fine ... :)
The medical thing - I wanted to put on my Facebook update - MEDICAID for everyone ... b'c as well as the Feds run Medicare and SS - that's what we're heading for. God help the U.S.A.!
