Which they will never see because I lack the nerve to send it and I doubt very much any of them read my blog……
I am sixty three years old.
My father died at sixty seven.
My mother died at seventy seven.
My maternal grandfather died at seventy five.
My maternal grandmother made it to eighty.
Some of my aunts and uncles made it into their later years, some of them died much younger.
It’s not likely I’m going to live into my nineties is what I’m saying.
Which makes all this testing* you keep ordering seem useless and just plain wasteful at this point.
*This post was inspired by the fact that my insurance company is refusing to pay for a very expensive test my PCP ordered back in November. A scan she ordered AFTER I had THREE other tests that came back NORMAL!
In a way I don’t really blame the insurance company. In principle I’m on their side.
Except……..I might be the one who ends up paying for it.
Color me disgruntled.
We now return you to our regularly scheduled program……
