3:43 am

he got angry with me because he woke me up 3 times during the night, moving around, having trouble sleeping.
3:43 am
rubyfoo

He takes multiple naps during the day and evening and then can't sleep at night.
3:43 am
rubyfoo

I merely want my 8 hrs, 12-7AM plus a one-hour nap. I don't think that's unreasonable
3:45 am
grannyrose

lol, same here with mother mac...can't seem to convince her to stay awake during the day, would help her sleep better during the night. " i'm just resting my eyes" yeah, right, and you mearly fell out of your chair because?????
3:46 am
rubyfoo

I think morther mac and my husband are about the same age (86?) and I understand how difficult it is for them but please, don't take it out on me!
3:46 am
grannyrose

ruby, not ureasonable at all.
3:46 am
rubyfoo

nothing wrong with small naps, but not 3 hours at a stretch
3:47 am
rubyfoo

we were supposed to buy a new (small) car this morning to replace our 15-yr-old one but he said "you go alone!" Instead, the salesman is sending me an estimate
3:47 am
grannyrose

oh, yeah...mother mac 93....and she does take it out on my hubby....poor man....he gets a break next week when she goes into respite for 7 days.
3:48 am
rubyfoo

what's respite?
3:48 am
rubyfoo

sounds like something I need!
3:49 am
grannyrose

"groan" why do youn have to make the decisions? and is he going to live with it, without complaint? oh, no. you will never hear the end of it...
3:49 am
rubyfoo

no, I will get the estimate and let him make the decision
3:50 am
rubyfoo

not that I'm incapable of buying a car.....
3:50 am
grannyrose

respite....the cared for person goes into a full-care facility, for whatever period of time, thus giving the primary carer/s time-out from day-to-day care-giving
3:50 am
rubyfoo

don't forget that I was alone for many years between marriages and managed quite well, thank you
3:51 am

that is loevely, though
3:51 am

ruby, anything like this available where you live?
3:51 am
rubyfoo

that you still want a husband, even with your bad knee!
3:52 am
rubyfoo

I don't know and doubt that he would go voluntarily anyway. He doesn't see himself as being cared for, calls me selfish and lazy
3:53 am

ruby, i am so lucky...to have found love of such depth and limitless at my age....i am a very fortunate lady.
3:53 am

nah, my dear, kiss him, and tell him how great you felt, that he could do this simple task for himself.

3:55 am

sorry
3:56 am

do you have clues for the 8 and 9 or even stats might help
3:56 am

never too late, my dear....we are the female of the species....we teach the males how to behave, remember?
3:57 am

3:57 am

3:58 am

3:59 am
rubyfoo

ty, got them, now I'll look up the meaning
3:59 am
rubyfoo

I guess I'll have to start weaving my own rope LOL
4:00 am
grannyrose

ruby, if it helps any, i apologise so many times, for things i have/have not done/said. it's the acknowledgement of how they are feeling which is what they are looking for.
4:00 am

but you have a kinder heart than mine, rose

just caught up with the chat while I was gone; "greyduck" is the MN accepted ending for Duck, duck, greyduck, but why would someone kill another over that?
11:02 am
Nef

And as far as the ending for the alphabet song; I always thought the "tell me what you think of me" was for the small child to say (because Moms are supposed to say "Wow, what a smart child you are!" right?); plus most of the younger kids I've known don't want you to sing it with them when they're singing it.

so I took my exams (the multiple choice sheets) to the department office yesterday morning and asked them to take them to Testing Services to be processed (which usually takes an hour or two; they are very fast). This afternoon, still no tests. Turns out one of them put a note on the envelope, another one put in in the campus mail, and they are sitting around waiting to be delivered on Monday. Which won't work, as the grades are due on Monday. So the office manager, bless her heart, is driving out to Mail Services, picking them up, and delivering them to Testing Services. I should have them later this afternoon.

evening everyone

uusue2

hi katie!
5:05 pm
KatieMcG

Hi Sue, hope you are well
5:06 pm
uusue2

I am good, Katie! Just finished grading my last exams, got all my grades recorded - I am DONE!!
5:06 pm
KatieMcG

Yeah - well done you
5:08 pm
uusue2

and I am retiring at the end of June, so I am REALLY done!
5:08 pm
KatieMcG

Oh that is REALLY done. Are you looking forward to it?
5:09 pm
uusue2

Absolutely. I plan to relax, read a lot, do some traveling, get my house in shape, attend lots of concerts, and so on.
5:10 pm
uusue2

I also finished the grid earlier, in case you need any clues.
5:10 pm
KatieMcG

That sounds lovely I could do with retiring, however I'm thinking that 44 is a little early :)
5:11 pm
uusue2

probably - I'll be 61 and even that seems a bit soon (but I am ready!)
5:12 pm
KatieMcG

I don't think that is too soon, you want to be able to enjoy yourself. Think of all the vacations you can have - Mari has hardly been in the country since she retired
5:12 pm
uusue2

I am thinking about doing a Babble grand tour later in the year - drive all around the US and Canada and visit lots of Babblers :-)
5:13 pm
KatieMcG

wow that would be fantastic
5:14 pm
KatieMcG

We are coming over to the States for my first ever visit this year, I am so excited about it
5:15 pm
uusue2

oh, cool! Where are you going?
5:16 pm
KatieMcG

New York, Niagara, Lake Erie, Parkersburg and Nashville (oh and the airport at Pittsburg).
5:16 pm
Soodle

Hi everybody :-) Katie, that sounds like the trip of a lifetime.. Lucky you.
5:17 pm
uusue2

Sounds great! Niagara Falls is amazing.
5:17 pm
uusue2

hi soodle!
5:17 pm
Soodle

Hey Sue ((()))
5:18 pm
KatieMcG

Hi Soodle, yes we are very lucky. We are going to do the maid in the mist at Niagara but have booked a lovely place for that night in lake erie so we are likely to only spend a few hours there taking photos and being in awe
5:19 pm
Soodle

Katie, I am GREEN with envy! Will you be able to hook up with any Babblers on your travels?
5:19 pm
Jillyjill

Hi babblers!
5:19 pm
Soodle

Hey Jilly :-)
5:19 pm
uusue2

hi jilly!
5:19 pm
KatieMcG

I'm not sure to be honest. We are only in NY for 2 days however there was some talk about trying to do something in nashville
5:20 pm
KatieMcG

Hi Jillyjill
5:22 pm
Soodle

Oh, you should try to organise a Babble meet up. (Don't know why I am suggesting that, I always feel very peeved when I read about Babble meets!!).
5:22 pm
Jillyjill

Hi Soodle, uusue and katie!
5:22 pm
MollyL

*Just hangs around, whistling*
5:23 pm
uusue2

hi, Molly!
5:24 pm
MollyL

Hi Sue
5:24 pm
Soodle

((((Molly)))). I'm not sure if your mom is still around, but if she is, she is immortalised as Whistlers Mother!!!
5:25 pm
MollyL

No, she's not. And she preferred to be referred to as "my Sainted Mother".
5:26 pm
Soodle

Well, I'm sure she would be tickled pink to be also known as Whistlers Mother. Bless her.
5:29 pm
Soodle

I also would like to be referred to as 'My Sainted Mother', but I fear that some other label will be attached..... Like Mad Old Bat........
5:30 pm
uusue2

I don't think I want to be referred to as a sainted anything. Too out of character.
5:30 pm
MollyL

Hmm, lets see. I am referred to as Mom, Ma, Madre and Moms. : )
5:31 pm
uusue2

I am usually referred to as hey-mom-can-I-have-some-money :-)
5:31 pm
Soodle

My young lad always refers to me as, and addresses me as Mudder.
5:32 pm
Soodle

LOL Sue...... that too!!!
5:35 pm
MollyL

Well Sue, I hope your young man has something nice planned for you on Sunday. You certainly have been there for him this past year.
5:35 pm
Soodle

My offspring are not as direct as yours, Sue. I get asked for 'a loan'.... Sadly, the concept that 'a loan' implies repayment has eluded them....
5:36 pm
Jillyjill

5:36 pm
ivesy3

my son would take me to dinner , but frankly i just cant afford it!
5:37 pm
Soodle

Oh.... of course... American Mother's Day on Sunday!! We had ours about 6 weeks ago.
5:37 pm
MollyL

Oh Ivesy, you too. You have been there for your boy. I wish you a very Happy Mother's Day, dear Ivesy.
5:37 pm
Soodle

LOL Ivesy...
5:38 pm
ivesy3

ty molly , and i wish you have a wonderful day.my present is jason being drug free.
5:39 pm
Soodle

Yay Jason! You keep it up!!
5:39 pm
ivesy3

:)..
5:39 pm
MollyL

Ah, that is a very good gift.
5:39 pm
Nef

Hi again. Looks like a lot of moms on now!
5:40 pm
ivesy3

yes , it is. and i am very grateful.
5:40 pm
Nef

and that's a wonderful gift, ivesy!
5:40 pm
Soodle

I'm going to do a Tiny Tim on it now.... stand by with your Kleenex...............................

5:40 pm

Hi Nef
5:40 pm
Soodle

God bless all mothers, one and all...
5:41 pm
MollyL

God bless us, every one. *Passes champagne*
5:41 pm
ivesy3

hmmmm love champagne... ty
5:41 pm
Nef

great performance, Soodles!
5:41 pm
Soodle

Yay!!!! And bless Molly for bringing the champers!!!!
5:42 pm
Soodle

Ivesy, is Jason your only child, or do you have more?
5:43 pm
Soodle

Thank you Nef. I will be signing autographs in the PB later...
5:43 pm
MollyL

*Puts out shrimp and cocktail sauce and hot crab dip and crackers*
5:44 pm
Nef

You're a great hostess, Molly.
5:44 pm
ivesy3

jason is an only child soodle, though at times it seems i have 10
5:44 pm
uusue2

ha, I know how that feels, ivesy!
5:45 pm
ivesy3

:)
5:46 pm
uusue2

whups, better run, Frank has a meeting and I said I would be there - see you all later!!
5:46 pm
Soodle

Proposing a toast to all Babble Moms....... Bless you all!! (pass the crab dip,please...)
5:47 pm
ivesy3

and i too have to run... hagn all, or day wherever you may be!
5:47 pm
Nef

my son made me very old when he was between the ages of 18 and 21, ivesy. He got scared straight when he was sent to maximum security at the state pen (minimum security was full) for his screwing up probation. Best thing in the world for him
5:47 pm
Soodle

Bye Sue & Ivesy. Happy Mothers Day to you.
5:47 pm
MollyL

*Clink* Oh Soodle, all that shrimp and crab dip and just the two of us.
5:48 pm
Nef

I'm still here, Molly. Just slow at typing (specailly since I typed in the wrong box again)
5:48 pm
MollyL

Geeze Nef, what a thing for you to go through.
5:48 pm
Soodle

Way Hey Molls....
5:50 pm
Nef

Molly, we got through it with lots of prayers and tears and anger, and support from friends.
5:50 pm
Soodle

But he is on the straight and narrow now, Nef, is he?
5:50 pm
Nef

Kind of the way life is, isn't it? I take things on the one day at a time basis.
5:50 pm
MollyL

Good Nef. Support from friends is a Godsend at times like that.
5:51 pm
Nef

He is, Soodle. Still a bit of a ditz at times, but a great father and works very hard in his job.
5:52 pm
Jillyjill

hi nef and molly
5:52 pm
Soodle

I just can't even begin to imagine how difficult that must have been for you Nef.......
5:52 pm
Nef

Hi Jilly! How are you doing?
5:52 pm
MollyL

Hi Jilly
5:53 pm
Jillyjill

Pretty good, final results from Mayo indicate Alzheimers for hubby...*sigh*
5:53 pm
MollyL

Oh Jilly, I'm so sorry. My Dad had Alzheimer's.
5:54 pm
Nef

Soodle, there was so much going wrong in our lives at that time; --but we got through it.
5:54 pm
Soodle

Oh Jilly. How devastating. (((((((((Mega hugs))))))))))
5:54 pm
Nef

Oh, no, Jilly. I was praying it wouldn't be that
5:54 pm
Jillyjill

And hubby is 56...thanks soodle...
5:54 pm
Nef

Is he on meds now?
5:55 pm
Jillyjill

So was I Nef...we will probably be back at Mayo within next year and a half...will put visiting you on the list..yes he's been on Aricept now for a year.
5:55 pm
Soodle

JIlly, is he aware of the diagnosis, and the implications?
5:55 pm
Nef

is it helping? And yes; next time let me know!
5:56 pm
Jillyjill

Oh yes, has a great attitude
5:56 pm
MollyL

Jilly, I hope you have a good circle of support. That is a hard thing to go through with someone you love.
5:56 pm
Jillyjill

Yes it seems to be...
5:57 pm
Jillyjill

#1 son is visiting now, I have, unfortunatly, found too many friends who no longer socialize with us...but I also have a tremendous group that support me and him
5:58 pm
MollyL

I'm glad for the ones that support you Jilly. I saw that happen with my parents too. Friends dropping out of the mix. People just don't know how to deal, so they don't. Which is sad.
5:59 pm
Jillyjill

*sigh* that it is molly...
5:59 pm
MollyL

I will keep you and your husband in my prayers, Jilly.
6:00 pm
Nef

I think sometimes people don't know how to react to bad news; and that's why they back away. I always want to tell them It Isn't Catchy!!!! When that happens
6:00 pm
Jillyjill

Thanks Molly
6:00 pm
Nef

And you do know that you and your hubby are on my prayer list too
6:00 pm
MollyL

You know what Nef? I'm not nice about that anymore. I think that is a chickenshit way of dealing with things. Especially when you have a friend in need.
6:01 pm
Jillyjill

LOL...you said it all Molly!
6:01 pm
Kaplan the Magne

At least send a card for goodness sakes.
6:03 pm
Jillyjill

Thanks Nef, I really feel supported by all my friends here in babble...
6:03 pm
Nef

very true, Molly. But some peoplereally just don't know how to deal with stuff; and maybe they are better not in one's life anymore?
6:03 pm
Nef

(Someday they might be very lonely themselves....)
6:04 pm
Jillyjill

Nef, that's exactly how I've dealt with it...sure you have been thru that with DH
6:04 pm
MollyL

You have a point Nef. Better to be surrounded by those with strength, than those who will just flail, not knowing what to say or do.
6:04 pm
Nef

yep. That's it exactly, Molly
6:05 pm
Soodle

An awful lot of people suffer from the Ostrich Syndrome. Stick their head in the sand, and everything is fine.
6:05 pm
MollyL

That is true Soodle. I found that out the hard way, when my husband died.
6:06 pm
Nef

Our friends we have now (with DH's illness and memory problems) are our rocks of Gibralter. THey are there through thick and thin
6:07 pm
MollyL

I'm glad you have good friends to lean on, Nef.
6:07 pm
Jillyjill

I think people forget how all of us have things to deal with...and possibly they have their own fears of it happening to them..
6:08 pm
Soodle

Either that, or the 'Head on one side syndrome'. I used to meet acquaintences in the supermarket, and invariably, they would put their head to one side and say...'How are you?'. Absolutely fried my brains!!
6:08 pm
Kaplan the Magne

People are too human.
6:09 pm
Nef

Jilly, surround yourself with friends, both those that are old and the ones you will meet along the way. You need time for yourself too
6:09 pm
MollyL

Here I have been keeping my big fat mouth shut about the supermarket, and she brings it up. : P
6:09 pm
Kaplan the Magne

Drowning in trivia.
6:09 pm
Kaplan the Magne

What's up with supermarkets?
6:09 pm
Soodle

WhatdidIsay?
6:10 pm
Jillyjill

I hear you Nef...I am going to a Christian Music Festival in July...always wanted to go, but hubby doesn't enjoy a camping out style, but since we are together all the time now, it seemed a good way to have some time by myself
6:10 pm
Soodle

And Jill, you will make some really good friends along the way. Really.
6:11 pm
Kaplan the Magne

unexpected moments of quiet beauty.
6:12 pm
Nef

Okay, since you brought it up, Soodle; do you trust anyone who tilts their heads like that and asks those types of questions? *I* haven't found them to be reliable; no matter how many times they say to call (they are always busy if you do call them too!)
6:12 pm
MollyL

Don't be fooled Kap, she's playing innocent.
6:13 pm
Kaplan the Magne

?????????????????????
6:14 pm
Jillyjill

Sometimes I want to scream...HOW THE HELL DO YOU THINK I"M DOING!!
6:14 pm
Nef

WIll your son(s) stay with him when you go?
6:14 pm
Soodle

I avoided the 'head-tilters' like plague. They were the ones looking for information.....
6:14 pm
Kaplan the Magne

Stupidest thing I ever said to anyone was "How was chemo?" Really. What an idiot.
6:15 pm
Jillyjill

Thankfully Nef, he's quite safe to stay by himself...he is really good about all the things he should do, pill box, notes, logging on calendar....
6:15 pm
Nef

((((Jilly)))) Go ahead and say it here. It helps to get it out
6:16 pm
Jillyjill

Thanks Nef, that's why I love you all so dearly!! And Kaplan...we've all done those things...part of that human thing you mentioned
6:16 pm
Soodle

<---- What Nef said!
6:16 pm
Kaplan the Magne

she said "Oh, it was a blast."
6:16 pm
Nef

That's good, Jilly. My DH was supposed to stay alone and friends just check on him the week I went on vacation with my sisters; but the kids ended up taking turns staying here because he wasn't trust-worthy
6:16 pm
Kaplan the Magne

Fortunately she knew me well enough to know
6:16 pm
Bugsaw

what would you like people to ask JillyJill? I would say that to show that I care about you, not just your DH
6:16 pm
Kaplan the Magne

that I am an idiot.
6:17 pm
Jillyjill

LOL, we also have great neighbors...and I look at his mom (who my gut says has the same thing) really was able to live safely by herself until the last 3-4 years....she'll be 80 in July
6:17 pm
MollyL

This is the one that got to me..."I think about you all the time". Really? Then why don't you pick up the phone and call me? I can't read your mind.
6:18 pm
Jillyjill

No Kaplan...HUMAN...
6:18 pm
crosshair

i am sorry to hear about hubbys diagnosis jilly.tell him i am pulling for all of you and to wade in and give it hell,take no prisoners! a good attitude,support from loved ones and being spunky and fighting it like hell make a huge difference.with my 3 cancers i was in it,s face doing what has to be done and taking no prisoner!
6:18 pm
Bugsaw

I am not trying to stop the chat. I am asking what I can say that would not be hurtful because that is NEVER my intention. I just want to learn
6:18 pm
Kaplan the Magne

It is a good question.
6:18 pm
Jillyjill

Bugs, I think Soodle refers to those who really don't care....just saying something to safe image
6:19 pm
Kaplan the Magne

Sometimes there is no right thing to say.
6:19 pm
Jillyjill

thanks crossy!!
6:19 pm
Nef

I love it when someone drops in and has a cup of coffee with us. I love it when some friends say let's go to dinner tomorrow. I'd love it if a guy would stop by and take DH fishing once the season opens (but sadly, those guys have all distanced themselves from him....)
6:19 pm
Kaplan the Magne

trouble visits everyone in some form or another.
6:19 pm
Jillyjill

I really hope that when he can no longer drive that someone will step up and take him skiing...he so dearly loves that!
6:20 pm
Jillyjill

Bugs...a hug always works best!
6:20 pm
Soodle

Oh, it is really very easy to identify those who care, as opposed to those who want to get the story straight from the horse's mouth.
6:20 pm
Bugsaw

thanks Nef. That is the stuff I was looking for! I want to be part of the solution not part of the problem.
6:20 pm
crosshair

trying to keep life and routine as normal as possible meant wonders to me during my rough time.can be tough on those around you but my mrs was a rock that i was able to lean on
6:20 pm
Bugsaw

I can hug and do that now so maybe I have not hurt too many people in the past
6:20 pm
Soodle

Well said, Bugs.
6:21 pm
Kaplan the Magne

You have a faith community, I gather- are they there for you? Do people put the word out? Sometimes there is not much to say, but cooking a meal for someone goes a long way.
6:21 pm
Jillyjill

On a good note, after 3 denials we finally got his social security disability approved...
6:21 pm
crosshair

i know that is tough,took ten years to grind my wifes app through the system
6:21 pm
Jillyjill

We have such a great faith community (Catholic Parish). I know all I have to do is ask.
6:22 pm
Nef

Bugs, even a simple "call me; I'm home around xxx times on these days of the week" or an offer to pick something up at the storehelps. So many people say "call me" but they don't mean it.
6:22 pm
MollyL

When my boss's husband died, her neighborhood set up a rotating "bring dinner schedule". She had meals in her house for three weeks. I was amazed at that kind of loving support.
6:22 pm
Kaplan the Magne

Sometimes it's hard to ask for help.
6:22 pm
Jillyjill

Now if only there was a way NOT to wait 2 1/2 years to get Medicare...would really help us financially if I didn't have to pay so much out of my check...
6:22 pm
crosshair

they bounce the diability app from doctor to doctor like it is a bloody tennis ball and the thing is time sensitive and you have to renoew it a few times as they gleefully let it expire
6:23 pm
Bugsaw

I would put the word out now to special people who ski to keep it in mind. It might help them to know that you want them to stay in your lives. At least I would like that.
6:23 pm
MollyL

But you have Medicaid, right Jilly?
6:23 pm
Kaplan the Magne

ah, healthcare. Now THERE's a topic.
6:23 pm
Jillyjill

That's happened with his private disability insurance...we have now taken to copying all medical records and sending them ourselves
6:23 pm
crosshair

sorry,not my time to vent.i hope all your paperwork perils are minor jilly
6:24 pm
Jillyjill

Nope, not with my income...too many strings as well...
6:24 pm
Nef

Jilly, I'd check with a social service worker at your hospital or the county to see what's available.
6:24 pm
Jillyjill

Oh Crossy...this place is such a wonderful place for ALL of us to gain support!!
6:24 pm
MollyL

Are you sure Jilly? Once someone is declared disabled by Social Security, they are supposed to be eligible for Medicaid.
6:25 pm
Soodle

thats the sort of support that is crucial in times of crisis, Molls. When a family is devastated by a death, and nobody feels like cooking, a delivered dinner keeps everybody fed and going. Its worth more than winning the lottery.
6:25 pm
Jillyjill

I am sort of frustrated with his former co-workers...they have literally "control-alt-deleted" him...
6:25 pm
Nef

that's what I thought too, Molly. That's why I said she should check
6:26 pm
Jillyjill

Molly, it is dependant on total income...even his private disability prevents him from qualifying...
6:26 pm
MollyL

I know that control/alt/delete thing Jilly. It stings.
6:26 pm
Nef

and that's pretty typical of Office friends, Jilly. DH still has 1 friend from work (and he'd worked with the same people for 25 years)
6:27 pm
Jillyjill

I really do feel blessed that he has the private disability though..
6:27 pm
Nef

that IS a blessing! DH couldn't ever get it ("pre-existing condition" --he was dx'ed when he was 38)
6:28 pm
Jillyjill

PRobably a little to fresh, but ran into a guy hubby reallly liked...but within a few minutes his countenance and conversation indicated he really didn't give a damn anymore...
6:28 pm
Bugsaw

As a work friend who still cares deeply about a colleague, I don't want to presume that my friendship is as important as her family and friends. I don't contact her often because of that, not because I don't care
6:28 pm
Jillyjill

WIll put it in the.."too close to home" catagory..
6:30 pm
Nef

Bugs, just send that friend a card saying you're thinking of her but don't want to call at the wrong time. Give her your number and the times you're available
6:30 pm
Bugsaw

thanks Nef. That I can do!!
6:30 pm
Jillyjill

PErfect advice Nef!
6:32 pm
Bugsaw

It is harder for men tho. When my husband retired he never expected to see the guys he worked with again and only does when they bump into each other somewhere. He is good with that.
6:32 pm
Soodle

I don't really understand the references to Medicare.. Is that private, self-funded health insurance?
6:32 pm
Nef

it really helps a lot to let your friend know you care
6:33 pm
MollyL

Medicare is government assistance with health care.
6:33 pm
Nef

Medicare is gov. health insurance for seniors over 65
6:33 pm
Jillyjill

Government retirement insurance one pays into all working life...
6:33 pm
MollyL

Medicaid is government assistance for those with disabilities.
6:34 pm
Soodle

And does it work? Is is sufficient?
6:34 pm
Jillyjill

LOL Soodle...that is the BIG question for the future...
6:35 pm
Nef

The person on Medicare still pays a nominal amount and (depending on what they are eligible for) they may get a discount for meds too. But they also have to have some sort of a private insurance too
6:35 pm
Jillyjill

It does cover things quite well, but how much longer it will have funding is questioned.
6:36 pm
MollyL

Medicaid is very difficult. A lot of doctors don't honor it.
6:36 pm
Kaplan the Magne

Medicare is government health care- which we're not supposed to have, except we have it.
6:36 pm
Jillyjill

Spot on kaplan...
6:36 pm
Nef

Medicare and Medicaid are 2 different things too
6:36 pm
Kaplan the Magne

it came in under President Johnson. back in the days when government was supposed to help
6:37 pm
Soodle

Probably a bit off topic now, but what if.. say a homeless person has a heart attack and a passer-by calls an ambulance, who pays?
6:37 pm
Kaplan the Magne

Medicaid is for low income. And certain parties are always trying to slash it.
6:37 pm
MollyL

Medicaid is also for people with disabilities.
6:37 pm
ElfRage

Medicare isn't universal, though -- most of the non-disabled and non-elderly have to have private insurance or pay for medical care out of their own pockets.
6:37 pm
Kaplan the Magne

Some hospitals have some amount of free care, which they lose money on.
6:38 pm
Kaplan the Magne

True
6:38 pm
Kaplan the Magne

We have a long way to go.
6:38 pm
Nef

We ALL pay, Soodle. That's the problem: people who are uninsured use the system too but can't pay; so the insured people help foot the bill for the uninsured through higher rates, etc.
6:38 pm
Kaplan the Magne

College and health care are for rich people, apparently.
6:39 pm
MollyL

No shit Kap.
6:39 pm
Soodle

Pretty much the same as here, then.... :-(
6:40 pm
Nef

we have the most screwed up "system" for health care and the "Obama Care" plan really could straighten it out
6:41 pm
Jillyjill

Been in health care for 35 years, 32 as RN...the system needs total rehaul...starting with insurance and pharmaceuticals!
6:42 pm
Kaplan the Magne

amen. that shouldn't even be controversial.
6:42 pm
Soodle

In all fairness, though, Nef, can you show me a country which has the 'Ideal' health care plan, which works perfectly?
6:42 pm
ElfRage

Hear, hear. I think insurance companies are just plain evil incarnate :P
6:42 pm
MollyL

I agree Jilly, they both need to be regulated.
6:42 pm
Nef

but the private health insurance companies aren't willing to help fix the problems. :-( ANd they have a lot of lobbyists and $$$ to keep things status quo.
6:43 pm
Nef

Soodle, I don't know how other countries do things. I just know ours is a broken system.
6:43 pm
Jillyjill

Every week we receive another notice that a major drug is unavailable....
6:43 pm
MollyL

I truly believe that if we ever have a bloody revolution in this country, it's going to be against insurance companies.
6:43 pm
Kaplan the Magne

I know we're not doing politics here, but I do thinj it will be interesting in the presidential campaign, since ROmney instituted basically the same plan in Massachusetts as Obama's
6:44 pm
ElfRage

Jill, my aunt was an RN for many years, and I've heard her talk about how busted things are. I hear ya.
6:44 pm
Soodle

Psshh. You think the system is broken in the US???? Its about 999% worse here

When a health insurance company makes over 277 Million in Profits for a year (2008 is what I just saw) and cuts the coverage for their clients; doesn't it make you say "WHAT is Wrong here?"
6:49 pm
Jillyjill

That it does Nef...

Well Cross, that is the statement that is keeping this country in health care hell. The affluent are moving mountains to avoid having to pay into a national health care program.
