It comes down to what you are comfortable with, and what if ongoing medical problem and pre-existing conditions. Just remember, things can change in a heartbeat.


I realize that things can change in a heartbeat. I have been undergoing treatment for a DVT (blood clot) in my left leg. Ten years ago I suffered a massive blood clot in my right leg. Had bleeding incident 3 weeks after diagnosis due to an INR that was too high. (meaning, the dosage for the blood thinner was too high).
Hospital bill was in the thousands. Thank goodness my DH is still employed and insurance covered a good portion. Our drugs are free for the moment but in two weeks time we will have to go on COBRA for me, Medicare for DH.
Thanks for the info!
