PBS on Health Care Reform

Tonight PBS is hosting an hour-and-a- half special on Health Care Reform.  Check your local listing for the time.  Our station airs it at 8:00 pm following The News Hour with Jim Lehrer.


This week has been busy for me and I have not had the time to comment on everyone's blog or to write a new one.  I will try to catch up over the weekend - no promises, of course.   I have learned to take it a day at a time and keep future plans flexible.


Next week I will not be spending much time on the computer.  I am having a pesky cataract removed on Tuesday.  With follow up doctor appointments, etc.  I probably won't post very often, if at all.  The older I get, the more doctor appointments I seem to have.  I keep my dermatologist busy removing actinic keratoses and malignancies from my wrinkled old skin.  Now I have a tooth problem; and so it goes as one part after another begins to show the wear and tear of a long life.


I am sure I will continue to post any updates on health care reform as energy and events permit.


Keep on calling and writing your representatives.  Here is a link to find yours.

good luck on your cataract surgery and take care. Sometimes it does seem things go in spurts

Betty said...

I hope your cataract surgery goes well, and you're back blogging soon.

*Rain - You have that right. Feast or famine. Thank you.

*Betty - I'm sure it will. Thank you.

Darlene, my father-in-law just had cataract surgery and he was delighted with the results. I am sure you will be delighted too. See you soon.

sorry, Darlene, I was very silly there; I didn't mean to delete and have no idea what happened.

Just to say, you'll be fine in no time; several members of my family have had cataract surgery and all were fine afterwards. The whole procedure is over very quickly.
Best of luck!

(now I hope this message doesn't get deleted again - here goes)

Darlene, will check PBS listing (its one of my favorite channels).
I hope your surgery goes well, sweetie.
I know how you feel, you take care of one problem and two more raise thier ugly heads :)
You take care, I'll keep checking back to see when you are back blogging.
Love and Hugs to you!

*la peregrina and Friko - I know it's not a big deal. I had cataract surgery on my right eye many years ago and it was a walk in the park. I understand the surgery has improved since then and I will only be in the surgery center 2 hours. I'm not concerned; just explaining why I may not be posting often. Thank you for your reassurance, though.

*Looking to the Stars - Sorry sweetie, it was last night. Instead of showing it at 8 pm as scheduled my station didn't air it until 10 pm. I stayed up to watch it, but all I learned was that Tom Coburn of Oklahoma is a right wing nutcase.
