We learned late last week that one of my twin 15 month old grandsons will require surgery this week to correct a semi-urgent problem. It would be considered “minor” surgery for an older child but a bit risky for a child his age. The surgery is scheduled for early this week.
“Minor” surgery is what happens to someone else’s grandchild. It is my grandson and therefore it is major surgery. When you add the modifier “semi-urgent”, that is enough to make grandpa and grandma concerned. We have been preoccupied the past weekend as a result. I was not intending to write a blog entry given all the angst.
In the midst of all this, I was researching whether the name “Passama” might have a meaning in the Catalan language which is spoken along the Spanish/French border. That is a long story in itself. This is what happens when you are on the beach.
Doing this Google search on my name somehow led me to a link that allowed me to access the 600 plus blog entries I wrote for NorthBay Healthcare from 2010-2017. Eureka! I have been trying to find a backdoor to that treasure trove.
I made many predictions in those blog entries, some of which I would just as soon forget. I did find one entry where I talked about the 2016 candidates and their stances on healthcare in general and the Affordable Care Act in particular.
I found that entry interesting. I have not asked NorthBay for permission to reprint it here so don’t tell them I have done so. They may close that backdoor! Most of my career was based on seeking forgiveness when I forgot to get permission. My retirement is going the same way except now I am seeking forgiveness from my wife instead of the board.
I hope you find my thoughts in April 2016 of interest and relevant to today.
