Regardless of weather, I plan to get out with a few cameras this coming weekend, hoping that the outdoors and my passion for making art can overcome this fatigue (from the surgery, infection, or both). I need some fresh air (and attitude).
The list of charges for the reverse shoulder arthroplasty arrived from Mayo today. $88,000 and change. I long to live in a country where every citizen has this and all health care provided simply as a function of being a citizen. There is no reason we cannot other than GREED. We are truly far from being the greatest country on earth. What do the working poor do when faced with this type of medical bill-lose everything, declare bankruptcy, suffer needless emotional turmoil, in addition to a host of other psychosocial stressors.
