Famous last words

We are between health insurance right now. I finished up at the Statesman and didn't want to go on Cobra while I waited for L3's to kick in. That starts Oct. 1.

"It's just six weeks," we thought. "We don't really use it that much."

We also made the rounds (doctors, eye doctors, dentists, etc) before I left the Statesman, just to tide us over.

Then I got sick. And I can't kick it. I've had it for almost 11 days now.
Hans caught it. He's on day three.
And today, Hudson bit Hans' hand. It's deep enough that it could need stitches. Mandy came over and cleaned it out pretty thoroughly and wrapped it, so we're hoping that works for now.

It goes to show you... if you have insurance, you won't ever need to use it. The second you don't have it, all heck breaks lose.

Coooommmeeee on, October 1st!

  1. I feel for you! We had to go without health insurance for a few months last year for the same reason. I think it's just one of those natural laws that if you don't have it, you need it. And when you do have it and are paying your premiums, you never use it. I got a cyst on my tailbone while we didn't have it and had to resort to my mother-in-law stabbing it with a needle to drain it. OUCH! It relieved it for awhile and then it came back once we had our insurance and I could get it taken care of for. I hope Hans's hand heals and you get feeling better!
