Good news! My mom left the hospital today and hopefully she will be fine! Thanks again for all the comments and prayers! They worked! I told my mom about all your comments and it really helped her spirits.
And on another note, I watched part of the State of the Union address. As usual, I disagreed with most of what Bush said, but I did hear about a proposal that piqued my interest. I was very lucky with my mom that she has good health insurance. She got the best of care at one of the top hospitals in the world. I felt very much relieved, but so many people cannot get that type of care.
I do have good health insurance, but I struggle to pay it every month. I have to buy it directly from the insurer and pay it all myself, about $700.00 a month. It's almost a rent payment! The cost of health care in this country is insane. I have been wishing for a tax deduction for all of the payments that I'm making. Since I don't itemize, it has not been an option that I am aware of. Bush's healh care proposal could actually help me. Although, I heard that part of this proposal could hurt a lot of people by adding employer provided health care benefits to taxable income. That would be very bad. I wonder how this will turn out.
