100 Word Weekly Writing Challenge —Week 5

The proposed changes to health care meant my partner would no longer be covered. I wasn’t going to see her shrivel up and die. There needed to be a protest and when changes placed a loved one in peril that is what you did.

I left her at home with instructions to keep the TV on as there would be coverage during the day. She was not well we both knew that and it was only a matter of time before hospital would be the only option.

I joined in, determined to have my say, always clinging to hope.

    Thank God for Medicare. My daughter and son-in-law were going to America in May, but now only my daughter is going. My son-in-law’s health is not the best, and even with travel insurance if he ended up in hospital (which is very possible) they’d probably have to sell the house to pay for it 😦

      They do have a terrible system, a friend of mine over there has to fill out multiple forms every time she goes to the dentist…..we do have a good system here Lyn, hoping you are staying cool….I’m coming to Sydney tomorrow to have the day with a cousin and his wife and its going to be a hot one I think….
