Addiction LXXIII

Road Cycling ďIt is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.Ē -- Ernest Hemingway

Us too. We cut the cord and TV service but use FIOS for internet. Still pay $40/month which I am not happy about.

Indy gets her ears cleaned every week. I smartened up and decided to do it pre-walk. By the time the walk is over, she's forgotten her person attacked her, and doesn't run away every time I move. After hearing those stories, I'm glad I keep on top of it. Magic Markers are known for ear infections, and whether or not I'm helping keep that at bay, isn't the point. It's the fact that I'm there monitoring it all closely, and if anything is amiss, it's off to Doctor Hover.

I don't know many people can afford to have a lot of kids and/or pets.

Normally Iíd just transfer the case entirely to onco but they arenít in Fri-Sat-Sun, whereas Neuro is covered on the weekend, so Iím just starting their chemo protocol, my colleague in Neuro will supervise for the next few days and onco will take over the case next week.

One lady I think is just rich, the dog with the tracheotomy.

The other people have pet insurance which pays 90% of the costs up to a certain max per diagnosis. They have a new diagnosis with the cancer now. Iím not sure what their insurance covers but I think itís something like $20k per diagnosis. So they might spend no more than $2000 out of pocket for the cancer diagnosis. A lot of money but just a fraction of what the bills will be.

Even though I get vet services at a 90% discount for stuff done in my own hospital, I bought pet insurance on Puppy Love. 90% coverage, $700 deductible. Just in case she needs something expensive some day that we canít do. It costs me $34/month.

Oncologists out for the weekend? Let's hang some chemo! You people are amazing.

Not my area by any means, but I seem to remember that the CD56+ tumors like to go to the CNS where there's lots of NCAM for it to attach to...or something.
