I bought this for my wife and she loves it more than she loves me:



She has residual arm pain from surgery and it helps a lot.

This pillowcase fits it perfectly:

blocked a slapshot 2 weeks ago. I wouldn't have thought a D league slapshot could do that. I think it rode up the stick. it was purple and bleeding before I made it back to the bench.
sadly, I got blood stains on the white cuff of my custom gloves:

a friend that's a Navy vet says peroxide should get it out though.

Yeah, peroxide did wonders on a microfiber couch for me. Might do the same for you here.

Friday I saw my massage therapist as I do about every 6 weeks. she knows I've been struggling but improving with the plantar fasciitis so she spent a little extra time on that foot. afterwards for about 30 hours the pain was back in a way that it hadn't been since the beginning. then suddenly, right before midnight Saturday it just disappeared completely and I've been 99.5% pain free since.

So would you say your massage had a happy ending?

Last month I had a tele-visit with my GP Dr. Had some minor but lingering issues that through the course of the visit determined were caused by some cheap cool-air humidifiers we had just started using, so I was breathing in mold and bacteria and junk. Call lasted no more than 15 or 20 minutes.

I was just given a bill for that visit. $858.00, of which I am on the hook for $307.95.

wtf

That's insane. Their billing has been normal heretofore?

I would call and dodint. Say that you'll be taking it to facebook and making a big stink if they don't reduce it to the copay.

Telemedicine is in a weird discovery mode and because of that, costs are wildly inconsistent. This is by the far the highest I’ve heard. You also live in a garbage state

Same insurance? Is he with the same network?

Yes, nothing has changed with my insurance coverage in years, and the Dr is still part of the UCLA Health System.

I need to do some digging, because this sounds hinky.

I would check and see if the encounter was properly coded. This smells to me like a billing error.
