Light at the end of the tunnel

I just got off the phone with someone from the insurance company and they’re going to give me a January 1 effective date for the state pre-existing condition insurance pool created under Obamacare — which means I can have the gall bladder surgery once it kicks in. I don’t mind telling you: tears of relief.

And thanks to Natalie, the constituent services staffer from my (Republican) state rep’s office, John Taylor.

    Oh, thank goodness. And now we know someone who’s benefitting from ObamaCare!

    OT– Corrente seems to be back up. Not a new post, but I could post a comment. A good thing!

    Well, thank god. Good luck on toughing it out till the New Year. I’ll go through the couch cushions and scare up something for the tip jar.

    Oh the humanity! It’s about time you caught a break. “Constituent services” are not quite dead, I guess.

    I’m really glad to see Ocare helping a real person! Interesting, though, that it sounds like it took action from a Congresscritter’s office to get what should have come to you as a matter of law. What’s up with that?

    And, like brendancalling says, hope the pain is manageable until you can get the surgery. Applesauce for Christmas! Woohoo!
