Just a minute ago, I was sitting here typing and I noticed I couldn’t feel anything in the tip of my left index finger. I looked at it and just the tip, from the last joint towards the end was ghost white. I looked at Vince and he said WHAT? I said “The tip of my index finger just died!” He came over and he couldn’t believe . . seriously, it was ghost white and I couldn’t feel anything in it.
Vince: What are you going to do about it?
Me: Write a blog post about it!
Vince: I guess if it starts stinking, we’ll know it’s really dead!
Thanks a lot, Vince.
Seriously, Vince massaged it and held it in his warm hands and the feeling and color came back. I Googled it . . what else are you to do when you have the awful health insurance I have? and there some conditions that could cause this but I think what happened was this: I had just gone over and taken the frozen pizza trays out of the home freezer and put them in the freeze dryer. That’s probably the finger that was against those frozen trays the longest and it might have had a little frostbite or something similar.
If it does it again, I’ll be sure and tell the doctor .. when I can go again . . in June, 2019. Have I said lately how much I totally dislike this health insurance I have? The other night I thought I might have a kidney stone. Vince said “What are you going to do?” I said “open a bottle of bourbon!” $950 co-pay just to walk into the emergency room. I’ve already had to do that once and I doubt, short of life and death situations, I’ll do that again.
For those of you with good, or even average, health insurance, thank your lucky stars. We had great insurance for so many years and I never realized how lucky we were to have what we had.
