Quarterly Haircut--life

I went to see my primary doc yesterday and we had a fairly long talk as he patiently listened to my moaning and groaning about the previous week with the cardiologists and hospital. He changed the bandages and said the incisions were healing nicely. Then he asked me for my 'list' as he knows I always bring a list of questions when I come to see him and this time was no different!

I seemed to be growing double nails at the tips of each nail plus they are cracking, splitting and are not only very brittle but are turning red! He explained that can happen when someone has heart trouble which was also the reason for my skin being very dry.

I, also, told him that I wanted to change my cardiologist(s) plus I didn't want to deal with any doctors working out of Broward hospital unless they also had access to Holy Cross---the much better hospital in my opinion! (In my old age I am becoming an expert on hospitals, doctors, treatments, etc.!)

When I asked him what hospital he was working out of he threw me a shocker by telling me that the Senior Medical Associates were recently bought out and that they did not want their primary doctors to be associated with any one hospital!! Seems like I have to start doing a lot of research, starting with talking to my insurance company.

Oh yes, at the same time my insurance company has changed the dental network they are providing which means I have 6 weeks to get everything done with my current dentist and he has been adjusting my new partial bridge since April!!

PS My barber wanted to know what happened to my hair, what I was using, as it has turned a white white--ah, some more research. How can anyone say they are 'bored' being retired?!?!??

I signed up! My dentist is on the plan, hopefully the work I need will be covered.

Hope it works out for you--I get 2 free cleanings a year, complete set of x-rays free once a year, free bridge and/or dentures every 4-5 years--so far that's all I needed the last decade

What kind of insurance covers dental for geezers? I have Medicare and they don't know from teeth.
