One of the many requirements for getting a bed at the shelter is a TB test. Well, one thing led to another this morning at the clinic and I’ve had blood work done, and I’m now on a high blood pressure medication and a diuretic to hopefully reduce the swelling in my legs. This afternoon I will also get a chest Xray. California’s state medical insurance is a million times better than Tennessee’s, which is nearly none existent. That’s probably the best reason for me to stay here in San Diego for a while.
