I hope you are having a good May...we've been busy with the garden, work and going to the hospital for checkups, etc. They have a wonderful family clinic that we've been going to......Alan is now on insulin and slowly he's getting his blood sugar under control....takes time...I am getting some needed issues helped too...... We are signed up with MISP, a Obamacare plan which is free for us....I know, I know, we've been very critical of Obamacare....and I still don't like the idea that the government can mandate that everyone get it...I think it should be up to the individual and family....that is the big sticking point as its not constitutional as far as I can see....however, for those of us who fall between the cracks..who are working and can't afford insurance for different reasons...its a Godsend. Neither of us mind that we sometimes have to stand in line for the pharmacy as all the meds are free also....we are thankful and its been a answer to prayer...if you've read this blog, you know the nights we've spent in the emergency room. The hospital is the Riverside County Regional Medical Center...its a huge hospital which is beautifully built, very open and light.
Being the county hospital, we often seen sheriffs guarding orange jumpsuit clad prisoners who are shackled and handcuffed. They come in prison buses from all around the county for treatment here. There are usually two sheriffs, one walking beside the prisoner, and one behind him...everyone gives them a wide berth.
Yesterday I had an appointment and while I was waiting, red lights flashed through the hospital, and a voice came over the intercom saying "Red alert, Red Alert, corridor A1 shutdown...shutdown corridor A1" turned out they were have a realistic hostage situation drill. Alan was upstairs getting a prescription and he said heavy doors swung shut cutting off all the corridors....doors slammed shut at the pharmacy too....in a few minutes, a call clear announcement was given.A security guard came and opened the doors.....everything was back to normal
Its been an adventure!
