first, excuse the lack of capitalization but the shift key is hard to operate with one handed typing. i fell and broke my wrist back in mid december. i needed surgery and two pins installed. the pins have now been removed and the bones are healing, but now the damn hand is infected. it looks like i'm wearing a baseball mitt it is so swelled. i'm on my 3rd try different antibiotic and frankly getting a little worried when you hear about all these drug resistant bugs you can pickup in a hospital. the cast is scheduled to come off in two weeks, but i got overly cautious and postponed our feb trip to the end of the feb and we totally canceled our christmas trip, so it's going to be 3 months between winter trips and this sucks. we normally do nov, dec and early feb. running medical bills total to date: $15,000 with more to come. i reached the $11,000 deductible on my insurance, but 1/1/16 we started all over again. 3 days ago i had to have an antibiotic iv drip and that was $600 and counting!! btw, that $11,000 deductible carries a $1,450 monthly premium for the two of us. i need a relaxing, drunken vegas trip with a couple of $4,000 royals. end of my whining.
