Health Care

A new school year started two weeks ago in Torrance.  Because of a budget cut, there were big lay offs this year, again.  Though I, a para-educator for Special Education, took a long-term leave until the end of Nov., I have a promised assignment because I’ve worked for them for more than 10 years.  I can keep good health insurance, also: My payment for the surgery and admission is just  $100, and that is a really good deal.  I am thankful for that.  I started receiving disability payments also because of breast cancer.  I could say this is my right because I’ve been paying taxes.  Yet I am grateful as I didn’t expect it at all.  I wonder if we will still have such nice benefits once Obama health care comes into effect.   Anyway I am glad that I can get a good health care.

I could get two of Mastectomy camisoles with drainage container-pockets ( $53 for each) for free with Kaiser insurance.

  1. Hi Kathy,

    Just checking in with you. I caught a glimpse of George at the church picnic talking to someone, but I figured he must get tired to telling everyone the same things about your condition, so I decided to check your blog. Glad to hear all the news and we’ll keep praying for a good report on the 27th. Looks like everything with work and money and all are taking some burdens off of your mind and that leaves more energy for healing. I’m so happy to hear that your sister is there to help. There is nothing better. My sister just left for home and we had four days of belly type laughter and remembering. So enjoy your family, dear one! You’ve got the BEST. I’ll keep looking in on you here, but if you need anything just email or call. Luv and hugs, Lee

  2. Kathy, I almost forgot about your blog…been wondering & praying if your surgery went well. Sounds like you have come through with flying colors. So glad to hear the health insurance & disability is there for you through all this. The last thing you need is to have problems there. I also have the Kaiser ins. through the district! So happy everything is going well for you! I am exhausted from going back to work…always a big adjustment after having the summer off. Take care Kathy…Keep in touch. Lois
