Sometimes there is not enough to write a complete blog--just not enough meat on the bone to sustain it from start to finish. Seems that I have run into that proverbial wall known as "writer's block". I have a lot of ideas--actually random thoughts--sprouting up in that rock garden located between my ears, but nothing that is worthwhile. So . . . I'll go with the random thoughts.
There was a time when doctors actually advocated for their patients--honored the "do no harm" oath they sweared to, but that is getting more and more difficult all of the time. I don't blame the doctors because they are no longer running the healthcare industry--insurance companies are. As much as the doctors would love to put the "caring" back into healthcare, it is prettty difficult when they have to check out the insurance codes before making a decision. Of course I am no esxpert on the topic, and this is just my opinion. Most folks don't put much credence in my opinions, but it sure would be nice if the first question from a hospital was, "Are you doing okay?" instead of, "Do you have insurance?" This I know from experience from taking the number three son into many hospital emergency rooms when he was having seizures. I say we need to put the "care" back into healthcare!
In about three-and-a-half months the first grandchild makes an appearance in this big old goofy world. I'm kind of excited . . . I'm curious what I'll be called: grandpa, papa, grandfater, or even the old fart. Whatever the case I pray that everything goes well during the pregnancy--for both the mother and child. Plus, I want the child to grow up with a better sense of punctuation than his or her grandfather because I sure would hate to lose my life due to a misplaced comma! Besides that, both the wife and I are looking forward to being grandparents in April and July--payback is hell!
Well, I warned you at the start that these were random thoughts--and they weren't even good random thoughts. They were pretty darn random and did not add up to much of nothing. Oh well, I think the wind has been blowing through one ear and out the other, I go see a doctor about that but it isn't covered by my insurance. Oh well, I am sure one of these random thoughts was my millionth one between here and there. At least it wasn't during the sermon, but I think my congregation would disagree. They looked up and nothing had changed.
