Caught in a difficult place.
Cancelled Dad's HMO
but can't find his Medicare card or number.
The pharmacy called and they need to bill his most expensive drugs.
For some reason did not record user name and password for SSA.gov. so am locked out.
But Medicare will send a replacement card in 30 days!!!
He takes 3pages of chemicals. On chemical life support.
My stress level is through the roof.
Can't get anyone on the phone, all answering machines.
I thought to call the HMO we just cancelled with.
They must have his medicare # on file. But will they give it to me over the phone?
Yes. They have it. The young woman on the other end was so understanding.
Yes. She will give it to me.
In great relief I asked, "You believe in God?" She wasn't sure what I
was asking. Maybe another number or something. Then she heard the
question. "Yes. I do"
I could share my realizations with her as
they came flooding in. "What a world we are living in! It is all
intangibles. Numbers and files and information. Categories designations.
None of it real. It is all in the air somewhere. But we live by them.
We accept them as real. So why do people have such a difficult time
accepting that God is real?"
She understood what I was trying to say.
"Maybe this is His way of bringing us to Him. One of His ways. Bringing
us to such a fever pitch of dealing with things that have no real
substance as if they were real. And having it become obvious that that
is what we are doing. So that we can accept Him."
And it is a
fever pitch. The increased technology and information streams are wild.
The sense that we are indeed living in a virtual reality. Something
truly incredible is happening all around us. We have to take advantage
of the telephone and communication to make the most important call...
