I'm happy to see you are on the mend Daniel!
**Now the peeve I and many other folks have: To see anyone have to spend that much $$$$ on health care is awful!
$15K a year is a bitter pill to swallow.. Kinda takes the 'fun' out of getting things taken care of by our medical professionals. I dislike the monopoly that our present regime has created and made Health care into since it's quest to make it 'affordable' Yet another screw up for sure as we all head to the poor house.. I know I'll never retire due to it's high costs. My father in law is facing many changes as well. It ain't pretty..
So Daniel--> Take it easy and heed the Doc's advice now. Blood clots are potentially big trouble so take things slow and easy even though I know you won't want to! (I wouldn't either) You are a lucky man and we aren't ready to say goodbye to yet another friend here.
