That sounds yummy! I could use a lot of that. Since coffee is a diuretic.

I also bought 4 litres of milk.

When I got home, all I had from the pharmacy was the milk. I checked the car. I checked my purse. I phoned the pharmacy and sure 'nuff, it was at the counter. She apologized and offered to have it delivered. It just arrived. Phew.

Time to try out the anti-inflammatory cream and the new brace.
I hope the brace and new med work for you. It makes life a bit difficult when you can only use one hand.

As opposed to a public clinic? We don't have government health care facilities unless you're in the military.

Or a commercial fisherman. My second husband always went to the Marine Hospital in Brookline. It was operated by the Federal Department of Health. (Surgeon General) They have several of these hospital along the coasts.

When was that, Addie? I live on the Atlantic coast, too, and had never heard of it. I did a little research and apparently it was discontinued in 1981. http://www.pcffa.org/fn-mar08.htm

It looks like they will be able to get health insurance through the Affordable Care Act. http://www.pcffa.org/fn-jun10.htm

Back in the late 70's was the last time I went there. It could be that they were closed. Both husbands were seamen. So I used to go there for both of them. The first one had to have his lower jaw rebuilt due to osteoporosis. So he was in there for a long time. He ended up with a metal jaw. Every so often he would ship out on a tanker as a cook. The money was really good. He would be gone for a couple of months and I would get his weekly check in the mail.

Hubby #2. Was a commercial fisherman and on one trip a wire snapped and came back on his hand and left his thumb hanging by a piece of skin. He too was in there for a long time. They saved his thumb. The hospital had a name but everyone just called it The Marine Hospital. It was right across from the hospital that the Kennedy's owned and started the Special Olympics.
