Saturday Collage with Frida, Van and Oxford Health
I found my Frida Kahlo Frocks and Socks magnetic set in one of the drawers whose contents I am purging this afternoon. I also found Sophie's original health insurance cards which provoked a storm of reminiscing in my head about the events of June, 1995 when she was diagnosed. I might title that chapter The HMO: Part One In The Odyssey of an Unwitting Healthcare System Traveler, A Tragedy.
Cast my memory back there, Lord. Sometimes I'm overcome.***
*** from Van Morrison's Brown-Eyed Girl, easily one of my favorite songs and a line that comes to me at least once a day, but in this case, does not refer to making love in the green grass behind the stadium.
