ezs note:  Even though you might not have plans to get surgery right away, or you can get it done independently, think about your neighbor who isn't as fortunate.  Please call your Congressperson and urge her/him to fully fund the Affordable Care Act.  If you aren't sure who your Congressperson is, click www.house.gov.  Put your ZIP code in the upper right corner, and you should be directed to the correct Congressperson.
