Healthcare – The Price We Pay

I am not used to being off my feet and at 10 percent capacity. Jello and Netflix just is not doing it for me. Don’t get me wrong, it is 1,000 times better than being in a hospital.

Right now, Ellen is fighting with the insurance company to get me my post op tests I need to get some tubes removed so that I can mend faster.

The system is working against us.

Obviously, sick Americans deal with this nonsense everyday.

On the plus side, t has been interesting to have home health nurses come to do specific tasks each day at our home. As a patient, it feels very efficient and the nurses I have met seem to love it.

I have the wound machine attached to my belly wound and every other day a nurse comes to change the dressing and reseal it.

I have leaned to give myself the antibiotics through an IV line.

Today I am going to start reading ‘The Price We Pay – What Broke American Healthcare And How To Fix It‘. It is written by Marty Makary MD and is a New York Times Bestseller.

The next 100 years will see a revolution in healthcare and education. It is inevitable.
