December 26, 2011

It has been a while since my last post, but I was waiting for the results of my yearly cancer scan on Dec. 20 ......... All clear, no signs of cancer. What a relief. For those of you who haven’t ever had any issues like this, it may seem like a small thing, but for me, it is huge. The longer you go without cancer returning, the better chance you have that it never returns. I always have “high anxiety” leading up to doctors appointments, but these yearly scans feel like a very real session of russian roulette.

Another bit of good news..... My insurance company, you remember Health Net don’t you, has finally paid UPMC for my surgeries back in the spring of 2009. This was not just “the insurance company doing the right thing”, but is what happened after my attorney threatened to start arbitration proceedings. (They paid my attorney as well,) I signed a non disclosure agreement, and am not sure exactly what I can say, but I am pretty sure that I can report things that happen regarding my health care bills........... My credit report should show that the “collection account” has been paid, however, it doesn’t go away, and will still reflect negatively on my score.

Speaking of credit scores, I wish mine was better.....

I was able to buy another rental house last month, and am now doing all of the normal clean up, fix up stuff that foreclosed houses need. The rent from this house will nearly fix my monthly cash flow problem.

I would buy many..... except, I am out of money, and no longer qualify for financing.

Enough with the whining..... It has been a long 3 years, but things are going very well, and life seems to be returning to some kind of normal.

Wishing all of you a great holiday season, and the best in 2012.
