High Cholesterol Board Index


JJ, Just talked to my son and the test came out well, he does not have a hole in the back of his heart. We are praising God. A lot of people were praying, I wonder how many realize just how uplifting that is. Anyway he told me the test was a breeze and no pain. Last Tuesday they took out the stint they had put in when he had his kidney stone surgery and he is pain free. He is one happy fellow tonight. They said his stones were calcium and so no calcium pills for him but they stressed low salt because it is the salt that acts as a binder to make the stone. Interesting ! He has had a cholesterol check and suspects it will be too high but says with his insurance he can't afford the statins anyway so will go a different path. He has $2000.00 deductible, isn't that awful but has to in order to keep the monthly Insurance rate down. Young people today don't have it so easy. Never thought it would get so that the monthly Insurance rate would be one of the highest expenses. Well after all it sounds like we both have some good changes, hope your hubby continues to improve, keep us informed. :wave:

Oh wow, am I glad to hear that, U must be soooo relieved!!! I hear ya about the insurance, my youngest son has the same problem. He is in the music field and does alot of free lance work in NY, so basically supplies his own insurance, and boy do they ever soak these younger folks. Luckily he has a good job at a recording studio, but still the price of insurance is outrages. I'm telling ya, we are all going to the poorhouse at the rate these insurance companies are going.

Oh well, hopefully U can sit back and relax now, I know U must be wound up like a 10 day clock!! Thanx for keeping me posted, and yes, I will keep ya posted how things are going here as well. Now go relax, and TTYL...... :wave:

No U.S. citizen has it easy anymore. But we have thousands of illegal aliens crossing the Mexican border everyday, and are entitled to free healthcare, at OUR expense!!! It's absolutely ridiculous, and nothing is being done to stop it! That's what really pisses me off!
