I received my Medicare card which now reflects Part A and Part B. I had gone into the SS office ( because you have to go in, in order to show them the official letter from HR that shows you have been covered by your spouse’s employer) and then you don’t have the penalty. So […]

So yesterday was insanely busy. We had to be out the door at 7:15am to get to the local oncologists’ appt. That went well. Then B had to go get his labs. Then we decided to go get bagels at our local organic bakery because we were going to head to Sacramento to check out […]
