Default Medicare annual wellness exam.

Be very careful with this guys. Some elderly say it was what put them in warehoused old folks homes.
It's an inspection, not anything related to your health. And they use EMTs. Not lvn, Rns, or CNPs.

They asked a lot of questions I didn't care to answer. Like what are your favorite outdoor hobbies?

Well now GS. You certainly were not lying to them. I finally told her I was a bird watcher. But I didn't tell her
what I watch them with Then the eye exam, my right eye was 20/20. But she didn't know
what mono vision contacts were so I flunked with my left eye. Duh, honey the left is for reading.

She had to look that one up lol.

Some of the questions were:

How many times have you fallen down in the last three years? Once, I tripped over an electric cord.
Do you cook for yourself and bathe yourself? Yes, my wife is a lousy cook and sometimes we give each
other a bath, kinky lol.
Have you ever contemplated committing suicide? No, driving on NM roads is more than enough for me.
Do you have or own any firearms? No, my arms have never been on fire. Have yours?

I guess I passed,she folded up her laptop then and said I was interesting. Lab crap after that. I still don't understand the local EMT thing with her.

Glad you had fun with it! Thanks for the warning, I prefer being very vague, using "why do you ask?" or "isn't that pretty intrusive?" and such.
Getting on at the VA as a volunteer I had to jump through a bunch of hoops, Dr, Asked about High blood pressure, I answered honestly that I did have it and when the guy who gave it to me retired, it went away, I think he was a carrier for high blood pressure, he laughed. Pretty cool Dr.

Come quickly, Lord Jesus

Volunteering at the VA is getting to be pretty awesome, divine encounters each time, much work being done for the kingdom.
Unction to go into this was received and walked out.
best wishes
