I called Medicare to change it and learned that I have to change the information at SSA and it will be updated to Medicare. By the time I got all this done, SSA was closed. That was last Friday, so I had to wait till today. Fortunately, it didn't take long nor was it a crock of red tape. I had a longer wait on the phone (nearly 15 minutes) than it took to change everything (about 8 minutes).
Sometimes, things are just so complicated, and when coupled with daily life .... gah. The year and a half or maybe even two years following my husbands death were chaotic, so many decisions to be made and so much to be accomplished. When you are in that situation, you do what you must do, sometimes guided by others. To be honest, not one of those decisions were not right, I think because people are very compassionate and supportive. The problem is that there was just so much going on for me to consider, make decisions, weigh options and then remember details. (Side note: It is kind to your loved ones to make decisions and get them in writing as much as possible. I don't care if you are 20 years old .... you never know when your time is up, and the more decisions that are already in place, the better it is for them.) I'm glad one more of my "things" is taken care of!
On a lighter note, did all of you see the gorgeous moon on Saturday night? It was the brightest moon per news reports for a long time and for a long time to come. It was beautiful. I was driving home from Capitan, and I saw it coming up over the Capitan Range and it was amazing! I had to drive a little distance before I coudl take a picture, and here are a few. Enjoy!
Once I was home, the moon was high in the sky, and in the early twilight, the landscape was just beautiful.
As always, even in these tough times ....
.... Life is beautiful!!!!
