Moving to a New Site






Friends, I've been blogging here for almost eight years, but it's time to move on. I'm not going away, but simply changing my address and refocusing a bit. I've started a new blog at An Ordinary Woman Pursuing Splendor. There I focus on "Practical Biblical Problem-Solving Strategies Amid Life's Disappointments, Challenges, and Crashes." Of course, that includes a lot of GenSandwich issues. I hope you'll visit the new blog and follow for updates. And THANKS for your support over the...

Are You Aware Of The Two Midnight Medicare Rule?




One of the changes in the 2014Medicare proposed prospective payment regulations is the two-midnight rule. This rule requires that inpatients must remain in the hospital over two midnights in order to qualify for inpatient reimbursement. Any stay shorter is considered outpatient, which has a much lower reimbursement rate.

Caring for the Caregiver: This Year I’m Taking Care of Me

It seems that Mom has become more difficult this year. Not really sicker, but more needy, more clingy, and worst of all, more unkind. Meanwhile, hubby has had a back injury and almost needed surgery. But he didn’t pass the cardiac clearance, so we are re-thinking that. But for the past...

Related by Chance; Family by Choice: the Critical Mother-in-Law/Daughter-in-Law Relationship
