$100 says the world is at or above 1M covid deaths, as measured by worldometers.info, by the end of Nov 4, GMT.

I'm willing to submit to verification by the moderators here that the loser pay up to the winner, such that our reputations here will suffer if either welches on the bet.

Cincy, that doesn't seem like a thing to look forward to.
It would be for me. I love anesthesia. Awesome sleep.

There are 7.3 million death from communicable diseases so far this year.

638,000 of those are from the China virus.

I'm about to undergo rotator cuff surgery. 
I'm looking forward to having surgery on my shoulder and getting back to somewhat normal

The surgeon said the surgery was almost always successful, done outpatient, arthroscopically, and the alternative is a lot of pain, and I can't throw a baseball, which is the real reason here.  He said if I do the PT religiously, and I will, I should be fine.

My shoulder apparently is a big mess as well as the rotator cuff, which I kinda knew already.
My husband's surgery went well; he has arthritis in that shoulder as well as bone spurs they shaved down.  He has five anchors holding the repair in place and has had two weeks (3 days a week) of PT.  Make sure you take your pain meds about an hour before your PT or you will regret it, lol.  Hubby skipped it before his PT yesterday and is still hurting big time today.  He is mostly frustrated as it is his right shoulder (he's right handed) and he can't do much of anything.  He is used to working all the time and the boredom is getting to him.  He really has no hobbies other than playing computer games which is difficult since his fingers can't coordinate the mouse if he uses his left hand.  It took me 20 years to talk him into going to see a doc about his shoulder pain and he keeps saying he should have just "lived with it" like he had done before.  I think when all is said and done he will be happy he did it.  Doc says a full six weeks in the sling and 10-12 weeks of PT before he can even think about going back to work.  We may squeak by with his family medical leave picking up the insurance premiums for 3 months, but it's going to be close.  What hurts is the missing paycheck for those 3 months.  Working on getting him short term disability but I don't think that was part of his insurance pkg.  

Can't even take advantage of the time off to see family as most of them are in other states with varying levels of isolation / quarantine protocols in place.  So, a lot of watching DVD's we've put off seeing for a long time.  Too bad he doesn't like sports - I have scads of Husker games he could watch but he would not be interested.  

Good luck with your surgery and here's hoping for a quick recovery!

The wife got her "bill" for the MRI, $4134, all paid by insurance.  Mine was at the same place.  They seem not to be very busy.

Her surgery is scheduled for 3 August.  I have not heard back from the doc yet.  I have bone spurs as well as the rotator cuff injury, which happened in 1971.

I am willing to hit the PT very hard.  I need to be in playing shape by January.  I guess my piano will suffer though, I have a few left handed pieces, and my left is still weak anyway.  There is a Chopin Etude I like that is mostly left handed.  I am pondering when to schedule mine so that she is somewhat recovered while leaving time for me to recover before January.  It's my right, her left.  And the car is a manual. 

Oddly enough, this injury did not get better with age, go figure.  Now just simply reaching for things is painful.

Oh, wow.  My hubby's MRI was around $1400, of which insurance paid $600.  We are making monthly payments on the other $800.  Thank goodness the surgery was outpatient; I can't imagine what it would cost with a hospital stay.  

My husband was asked today about driving; we have an automatic and I do all the driving anyway, so that is one less worry for us.  We prefer manuals, but I'm glad we have the automatic right now - in an emergency, he would probably be able to drive himself if he had to.  I spend all my time in the car, I swear.  Between his doctor appointments and my sister's doctor appointments (I took away her license years ago), trips to the library and grocery store it's a good thing I'm retired now.  If I have to see a doc, we are going to be in trouble, ha ha.  

PT is slow but steady for him now.  Really painful the other day but today wasn't bad.  Looking forward to getting the sling off.

I'm on Medicare, as is the wife, and I have retiree supplemental.  She has something else, not sure what.

I presume that $4400 is the "MSRP" in effect, not the "real price".  I called today and learned they have not sent the MRI over to my doc yet, which is kind of a bummer.  They are on the same floor around the corner.  They gave me a CD, yay, I can't read it.

The math of medical prices is so very strange. Like some parts of it make sense, but others do not.
