They've had their vaccinations, they will often be nudered already and very often the shelter will do a behavior assessment, so that they can help you find the perfect match.

Vitamin C Rich Healthy Food For You

Hey guys, summer is here. How are you staying cool this summer The rising mercury levels are leaving all of us feeling dehydrated. Are you guzzling gallons of water Well, being properly hydrated is one thing, but you also need to combine that with a proper summer diet. Now when it's so scorching hot outside, just about any fruit is refreshing. But the combination of kiwi, papaya and raspberry is particularly great. You see they contain a great combination of cancer fighting vitamins and minerals, like vitamin C and Beta Carotene.

In fact, kiwi and papayas contain more vitamin C than oranges which is great for regulating blood pressure. Kiwi and papayas also contain vitamin K which leaves you feeling hydrated and regulates your blood pressure, your nerves as well as your heartbeat. In addition, papaya also has vitamin K which helps with normal blood clotting and helps you absorb calcium. And if you want more fiber and even more vitamin C, throw in some raspberries. And on top of that if you also want to add some protein to the mix, throw in some cheese.

Obamacare, Medicare How will ACA affect seniors

Hi, I'm Michael Wilhelm, Partner, Trusted Senior Specialists. We have been helping thousands of seniors over the last twelve years make great choices regarding their Medicare Healthcare plans. I want to let you know that I, too, am turning 65 in the month of May. And just like many of you, I was concerned about how the Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare, will affect my Medicare benefits. In a recent publication, Julie Bataille, spokesperson for Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, stated, We want to reassure Medicare beneficiaries that they are already covered, their benefits aren't changing, and the marketplace doesn't.

Require them to do anything different. And there's more good news, some of your benefits are getting better. You should be able to pay less for prescriptions. And we know how important that is as the older we get, and the more health challenges that we have. You'll see an increase in savings as the donut hole closes. The donut hole will close completely by 2020. Then, you'll pay just 25 for all your prescriptions Your option to choose a doctor will not change. Medicare recipients will now receive a free wellness exam every year. Your doctor will.

Be able to create a personalized preventive care program to keep you healthier, longer. And we know we want to stay out of the emergency room, and we know that we want to stay out of the hospital. So we like the direction that this is headed. Most screenings will now be free like your mammograms and colonoscopies. Checking for diabetes, high blood pressure and high cholesterol is also included as well as immunizations and diet counseling. If you're a smoker, get free counseling to kick the habit. This is good news for all of us as we enter or continue to be part of the Medicare family.

For more information, feel free to contact us at TrustedSeniorSpecialists or call us directly at 18006866199 and one of our trusted agents will be more than happy to assist you with all your Medicare questions and Medicare needs.

Myringotomy Insertion of Tube Surgery PreOp Patient Education

The human ear is made up of two chambers. The inner ear and the middle ear. The middle ear is sealed off from the outside environment by the tympanic membrane or eardrum. In a healthy ear, this membrane acts to protect the delicate interior of the ear from contamination. Occasionally, however, allergy, infection, or other irritation can cause a buildup of pus, blood and other fluids within the middle ear. In these cases, the seal created by the eardrum acts to prevent proper drainage and can actually pose a health risk.

Symptoms can include pain caused by the buildup of pressure and even hearing loss. If left untreated the buildup of fluid can damage the delicate structures located behind the eardrum leading to temporary or even permanent hearing loss. A myringotomy is a simple procedure in which a small tube is inserted into the eardrum in order to allow fluids to drain out of the middle, reducing pressure and allowing any infection to be treated with antibiotics. Your Procedure On the day of your operation, you will be asked to put on a surgical gown.

You may receive a sedative by mouth and an intravenous line may be put in. You will then be transferred to the operating table. The surgeon will apply an antiseptic solution to the skin on the interior of the ear canal and will then swab the area around the eardrum with a local anesthetic. While the anesthetic is taking effect, the surgeon will position a microscope in front of the ear. When the operative field is numb, the surgeon will use the microscope to help make a very small incision in the lower part.
