We decided to send Far Guy to surgery to have his port replaced. It will happen soon. He asked my opinion and I think that having a port keeps him out of the clinic and all the germy people…which in turn keeps him out of the hospital. I am not certain how many times he can have it replaced, I suggested they just put a zipper in his chest.
I am going to start logging our hours spent at the clinic/hospital. Last week one of the nurses was coughing…we are both a tad paranoid about that. I almost suggested that she should have stayed home…but I kept my big mouth shut.
The Income Taxes are done and were sent electronically, how about that …no last minute filing for us. Our accountant answered all our questions. Cross something off the list. Years ago after an audit, I made the decision to use an accountant and I am glad I did.
The local hospital doesn’t have a copy of our Advanced Care Directive but I will make a copy so they have it on file. The clinic has it and I hear that soon the hospital and the clinic’s computers will be able to talk to each other…sometimes change happens very slowly in the boonies.
Do you have an Advanced Care Directive? Do you have a Last Will and Testament and has it been recorded? We were talking with a young widow the other day and her husband had no will…so she was making her way through a ton of paperwork. Sometimes the decisions we don’t make can become real problems for those left behind.
