Covid-19 took a month of my life. Now I will try to claw it back
I am always so happy to get an email from you. Thank you
So happy to read you're feeling better Molly
I am sorry you went through that but glad you are on the mend! Was happy to see George is back home too!
Holy shit, so sorry you have had to endure this COVID stuff, but so relieved you are on the mend.
What’s the story on the Dodger’s guy busted ribs on Bernie Brewer slide in Milwaukee!?
I’m headed to Milwaukee next month to play Anthem for the Brewers-Yankees opener 9/16!
Continued healing vibes…
VERY glad you've been fully diagnosed and on the mend. Live in LA and am CS patient. Shocked, frankly, they didn't find this issue. Thrilled your PCP did. (My PCP is affiliated with CS and is AMAZING.)
PLEASE keep following "Doctor's Orders" until you're all the way back. COVID is VERY persistent. (Have a college friend that got COVID at end of June....still gets fatigued etc. Bad days down to 1 in 4....but he's a marathon runner, Iron Man competitor and rode his bike across the country.) COVID is dangerous. Period.
Hope you feel a little better each day. Take your time and realize the heart meds may need to be adjusted(Heart attack 2003-meds since). Sorry you had a rough time. Go Dodgers and Dawgs, Athens GA.
Good for Molly. Way to battle 🙏☮️🌞
Sorry to hear about what you went through Molly, I hope you are on the road to recovery. As someone who also just got his first bout of Covid now, I feel so bad you had to go through this. Good luck
Molly, Glad you are feeling better and that George is back home. When it does come time to fill your prescription, check out Mark Cuban's https://costplusdrugs.com. Even with a "good" health care plan, the cost for some of my meds was significantly cheaper using this site without insurance vs. filling them at a pharmacy with insurance. Good luck!
Re - your insurance. If you met your in network deductible it means your insurance will now pay a percentage of your care (at in network providers)until you reach your “out of pocket maximum” which is the most you will ever have to shell out from your wallet for the year. I know it’s confusing but look at all your statements bc insurance companies assume you won’t and they make “mistakes.”
Also when you get a bill from Cedars call them and ask for a discount and interest free payment plan(sometimes you can get about 5-10% but you usually have to pay all at once). If that’s not doable ask them for an interest free payment plan. And make the payment as low as possible - you should suggest the payment you are comfortable with or they will suggest more. Don’t just ignore the bills bc then you will have the unique pleasure of collection notices and calls when they sell your debt. Be well and take it easy.
Thank you for sharing your personal story. It is important that these stories are shared. You are young and healthy and probably correct that pre vaccine you would have been on a ventilator.
I am thankful that you were able to access the urgent care, the ER etc...because they were not at full capacity like 2020. All the best in your recovery.
Glad to have you back, Molly. I sincerely wish you a speedy, full recovery. Add my 5000/10 support for Medicare for All (specifically, the British NHS style, if you want to get in the weeds - in practice, this would resemble a VA that everyone can go to, not just military and veterans) to the column. It seems that society is slowly coming to grips with the realization that most, if not all, private insurance has got to go.
I'm not rooting for your Dodgers today, though. Sorry. I can't only go so far. How the heck does Heaney have the ERA he has??? The Dodgers are awe-inspiring right now. I just don't get it!
It looks like things are moving in the right direction, Molly. The dog is home, writing is back on, and laughing on zooms! America’s healthcare system is a joke. My dog Dodger has better insurance coverage than my wife, who is a teacher!
Fear not Ms. Knight. We are going nowhere. Speaking for myself and all my Dodger fan geeks that need your sane insights to keep from having a stroke every time Doc sends in Kimbrel or taking an overdose of Maalox when we learn Butane needs elbow surgery. You are our Knight in Shining Armor, even when the shine is a bit dimmed by Covid or anxiety or a dog emergency. Get better. And please comment on DV taking the tumble in BrewTown (and how is it that silly mascot can do that slide every night, often multiple times and never breaks any bones or ribs?). And maybe a comment or two on that AMAZING Joe Kelly moment against Darth Altuve last night. All the best. We're always here.
One more thing re: expensive meds (my husband has one that costs $14k a month) go to the website of the drug(if it’s expensive it will have one!) and see if they have a copay program where they will eat a large part of the bill and you only pay a copay. Or give a call to a specialty pharmacy and talk to someone there - they usually know about these coupon programs. I have had good success with Wilshire LeDoux pharmacy. Good luck!
Please take care of yourself. You are a valuable voice in so many ways.
