Sorry to hear about your dad, Mac. My dad had a stroke about the same age.

One of the problems with our private health care "system" is that preventive care just doesn't make economic sense for them. Remember, we do have public health in this country -- Medicare -- starting for most folks at age 65. The private health care "system" is concerned only with keeping the customers alive, at the lowest possible cost, until they can pass them on to Uncle Sam.

Looks like they timed it just right with your dad.

I hope he makes a full recovery, Mac. I know it's corny, but love him while he's still here.
