Although some may complain about the Canadian Medical System, I want you to know that I have NO complaints about it at all.
None. Zero. Zilch.
Currently, my family is reaping the benefits of a medical system that will help the poor guy down the road or the rich guy up the street. It is saving my life. It is giving my sons a mother for many more years and I pray to God a grandfather too. I dont have to worry about paying for A-N-Y-T-H-I-N-G. My house isn't in jeopardy, only my health, and that's just the way it should be. I will happily, HAPPILY pay my taxes this month and realize that I love my Country and I love our Universal Medical Program. I LOVE IT.
Now, for an example of how they aren't saving any money, the doctor sent me a copy of my CT Scan and a computer program to read it. And for your reading pleasure, I am about to share more of myself than I ever thought I would.
Ladies and Gentlemen .... I present to you my skeletan.
Don't get all excited, I am wearing a gown!
And then, finally - IT. Or at least what I think it is because, well I am not a doctor nor do I pretend to be on in real life. And you now, CT scans are really, really difficult to read when you don't know what you are doing or what you are looking for. But, if I remember correctly, that's the cancer there at the end of my left kidney. Its about the size of a grape. I am one very, very lucky woman. I talked to a lady today who had a kidney tumor removed from her that was the size of a human head! A HUMAN HEAD. She was asymptomatic except for flank pain. I am very, very lucky.
Whole lot of fuss for something so tiny, eh?
