In case any of my readers have noticed, I haven’t posted any blogs in the past few months which deserve an explanation. A short explanation would be that due to a health problem my thinking cap wasn’t working.
My colon had become independent and had lost control of its function; which led to a number of problems. I was advised by family and others that at my age it was too risky to have major surgery, but had a Colostomy on Dec. 28 and am doing quite well. A Colostomy is relocating your rectum to another part of the body and attaching a plastic bag. This isn’t an ideal option, but not as bad as one thinks
I felt fortunate that I wasn’t one of those millions of poor souls that lined up for blocks just to see a doctor. I had a good health insurance policy at Kaiser Permanente plus Medicare. Without it I would have lost my life savings for hospital care and years of paying for aftercare and drugs.
This leads me to think if all those in the Bible Belt and other religious bastions have read and followed their leader in his instructions in the Sermon on the Mount or are too busy judging the life styles of gays, abortion and other trivial things.
I no longer belong to any organized religion because of these reasons. I feel universal healthcare is more important that our over ballooned military budget and spreading democracy before we have it at home.
I feel born again on this subject and plan to pursue it in future Blogs.
