    I don't know if you are aware of this or not, so here it goes
    Tuesday June 2 went to Saint Ann's hospital. short of breath.
    Stayed there till Thursday and was taken to Mount Carmel for a cauterization.
    Was discharged on Friday. Returned to Mt. Carmel on Monday for an implant of combination
    of Pace maker and Deliberator. Was discharged on Wednesday
    Thursday back to doctor with high fever
    Sent to Saint Ann's again and was found to have caught a hospital disease called Cdiff.for short
    its an intensenal disease caused by hospital sanitation.Its the worst pain I have ever felt.
    Was kept in Saint Anns until Friday the 19th when I was discharged with a bunch of Scripts
    and told to go home and suffer. Doctors say it can take between 8 to 19 weeks to heal from this disease.
    I have been down for over a month now with something that was supposed to take 2 days.
    Right now I am looking at over 150 000 dollars in bills
    I have 2 insurance plans that are fighting over which one is the primary and as a result neither one in paying.
    The good news I am starting to feel better and it won't be to much longer before I'm back to normal.

    Hal were sorry to hear of your medical problems. Sometimes the bills end up a bigger problem than the original medical problem. Get well soon.

    Hope things work out in your favor on the insurance.I also have 2 insurances and had heart attacks 2 years ago so I know what you are going thru. Sometimes there haggling can be a pain in the %^&. . It will save you a lot of worry and agravation if you will keep in touch with hospital billing and let them know whats going on, Hope you are back on the water soon.

    You've been in my thoughts and prayers Hal. I'm glad you're finally feeling a little better. You've been missed here and when you're up to it we'll hit the water and catch some turtles (just kidding buddy...i meant FISH!)
