Mer, it is so good to hear from you!! I think you did the only thing you could do...put him on your insurance. I agree that you definitely need to "get away from it all" for awhile! It will do wonders for you. You know, this type of insurance situation is the very reason we need reform. I understand that every day Obama's sec'y picks out half a dozen letters for him to read personally. Perhaps you should write to him about what happened. He apparently likes to know these things. I watched his Q&A on healthcare that was on TV the other night, and I'm cautiously optimistic. Situations like you and your husband just went through should not be allowed to happen! Not when someone is on a transplant list, for the love of God!
Have a good vacation and tell us about it when you return!
