my wife makes substantially more than I did before I retired
I am on HER health plan
the dominant creature in our household is Elsa, who is actually the smallest of our four cats.
But what made me really realize this was considering my medical care professionals
physician of record - female
nurse practitioner who is my primary care physician - female
orthopedist treating me for a wrist problem - female
dermatologist - female
dentist - female
i grew up in a time where having a mother who was a professional (mine was an assistant AG of NY State) was unusual, and there were few female professionals as models for my classmates
what a different - and at least in this one way much improved - nation I now find myself.
