My son-in-law's brother died Tuesday night by asphyxiation during a seizure. He was unemployed and had no medical insurance, so his sister did not take him to the ER. If he'd had medical treatment, he most likely would not have died. It makes me wonder, how many people die each day in this country because they have no medical coverage?
For the first time in my life, I'm facing the prospect of not having health insurance. My COBRA runs out at the end of the month, and due to preexisting conditions, I can't get health insurance. Fortunately, I'm a Navy veteran, so I may have to turn to the VA for help. I hate the thought of using services that should be going to our returning veterans, but what choice do I have? My country is failing me and millions more.

Our grandson stayed up until 2:30 am this morning! He loved watching his grandfather dance to the Boogie game on the Wii. So I got up rather bleary-eyed this morning. I made whole grain pancakes and grandson devoured them to my surprise. After breakfast we played with trains, went for a short walk and then had a quick lunch before he collapsed for a 3 hour nap. Then it was time to say goodbye. We pretty much vegged out for a while and watched a movie. I see why Bangkok Dangerous only got 2 stars.
Got it together and did the bootcamp video, strength training and then bowled with Wii Sports Resort where I hit a new high of 246. Would have liked to bowl longer, but my back was done. Lifting up a toddler for a couple of days is more than I'm used to, but I'll take those hugs while I can!

What a day! Stayed up late last night and had to get up early to pick up our grandson. Took him to his first toy store and he loved Grand Rabbit. I had to bribe him with trucks to get him out of the store after an hour. We had brunch and went for an hour walk on a nature trail. There were many photo ops, but I forgot my camera! At least I got my cardio for the day.
After we got home, he slept for 2.5 hours, so now it's 11:30 pm, he's wide awake and I'm fading fast. I picked up the game Boogie for the Wii so we'd have something fun to do tonight to fulfill today's bootcamp challenge. So after I completed the video, we "Boogied". The game wasn't ideal. It's a single player game and is really designed for a preteen girl. However, my husband had quite the workout, while I just looked like an idiot. We did entertain our grandson though.
I didn't get much spark time, but it's been a fun day.
