For a regular checkup. I tried to move it to tomorrow, but that day wasn't open. In fact, the next open day was March 19! Makes you wonder what will happen when the 50 million uninsured are insured. How easy will it be to get an appointment? How easy will it be to reschedule?
And...will state-run healthcare allow for Zoe at all? We're blessed to find a bunch of doctors who see value in preserving Zoe's life, who don't see Trisomy 18 as the end. But, others have simply said or shown that her "death sentence" means she should receive different, less, or no treatment.
Think that will get better or worse with state-run healthcare? In other attempts to bring state-run care through time and history, the state had to make Draconian decisions about treating the elderly or dying to care for those who they deemed would live. Come to think of it, I'm glad Zoe and my Dad were able to experience a different healthcare for this part of their lives.
