1: I’m in the hospital in Chicago, instead of a train. I had an umbilical hernia, that they were able to reduce externally.
2, I was hurting so bad at 10 am that I went to Urgent Care thinking they would give me a pain killer and send me on my way. Instead I got a ride in a Chicago Fire ambulance, complete with sirens.
3. Ray came and retrieved my luggage from the train station, and stayed with me all afternoon in the Emergency Room.
4. I’ve gotten all the morphine I wanted.
5. Hooray for Medicare and Tricare. Don’t know when I’ll get out, but I have options for hotel stays and replacement train tickets.
How about you? What are you thankful for today?
