Got this caption from ANA when l decided to give an update.
So it's been a 120 days since my last report.Not a lot to add,been doing great on most everything this year.l have lost most of my hearing on the side of the tumor,but that was expected.Very slight balance issues.My wife retired the first of this year which left us without insurance.Cobra was incredibly expensive (around $2000) a month.*Note: Does your employer really want for you to pay that much! Checked with several other insurance company's but still a lot to pay after trying to adjust to one income.And we missed signing up for Healthcare.gov by just a few days.So this year we just went without..
Good news though,l just got us signed up for coverage through Healthcare/Obamacare for 2019.Somewhat ironic is it's the same insurance that we have had through my wife's previous employment.At about half the cost with a subsidy.
Because of no ins,l haven't went back for an MRI,but will be scheduling soon as coverage starts.
Not much else to report except a season ending accident which shredded my left Rotator Cuff.Had surgery on Dec 29th,2017.Which we didn't pay anything for because the deductible and max out of pocket had been paid from the GK procedure.The surgeon said you have two dates to choose to have the procedure done.Dec 29th or Jan 6th of 2018.Gee,which one should l choose!
Oh,l did purchase (thru an audiologist) a set of hearing aids cause just one wasn't working too well.Best thing l could have done.My cell phone bluetooth's right into the hearing aids.And l can also stream music.
Hope this will thread will help others decide what is best for them!
