re: Medical Admin

I thought everyone should know that my husband passed away a little more than a month ago. He had devoted the last part of his life to his family, but I know that he really appreciated Democratic Underground and often mentioned to me some particularly good argument he had, or some new information that he learned while posting here.

I would like to thank everyone on here for giving him such passion and fun. I appreciate it and I know he did. I only wish he hadn't been taken (and yes, I do mean taken) from us so early. He was truly a renaissance man. In his life he had worked as a social worker, teacher, oil worker, conductor, print and publishing sales, and an officer. His last career was as a medical administrator, a job that he was gravely passionate about.

I miss him more than words can explain. I feel it like a knife twisting in my heart. I wake up in the night and he isn't there. I look for him to come through the door and he doesn't. My phone rings and it isn't him. But my world is a little less empty every day. Maybe someday the scars on my heart will heal over. In the meantime God help the insurance exec that ends up in front of me when I'm driving anywhere.

I wish everyone here good luck. As for myself and the rest of our family, a cousin of his has sponsored us to move to another country where this insurance BS won't be able to happen again to us. And so we are leaving. I would stay and fight with you but I am so tired that I can't see past survival mode right now.

Thanks again for being my husbands online friends.

Lee Ann.

He will not be forgotten. My husband passed away almost 5 years ago. You will never get over it. You will only continue to try to find ways to get through it.

Take care of yourself,

It sounds like what passes for "health insurance" here may be to blame. There is no excuse for that.

My wife passed away too, and it does get "better" with time. Take care of yourself.

MedicalAdmin was so passionate and intelligent in his postings, and our progressive community lost a very good voice with his passing.

And I do not blame you a bit for wanting to get the heck out of here. I would as well if things were just a little bit different. It's so very complicated to be able to do so despite what the "love it or leave it" crowd thinks.

Take care, and may you and your family find a peaceful and supportive community wherever you are headed next.

His last post was the first one I had bookmarked since our site had changed to the new format, but, unfortunately, due to some glitch I was not able to find it.

I was so impressed with his writing & admired him as a DUer. His story really affected me; I was heartbroken to read about his experience with the insurance-for-profit companies.

Take care, Lee Ann, & I wish you the very best in gathering strength & happiness you'll need to build a new life. I hope your new location will help you find happiness & fulfillment.

Good luck to you and your family, and know there are many here who will continue the fight for single payer with your husband in mind.

You are wise to leave and I wish you the best.

59. I'm so sorry... he was a special guy; it's sad that someone so full of life didn't get a longer one

I was both touched and impressed by the way he chose to count his blessings rather than focusing only on the injustices that were done to him. He would have made good use of a longer life, but he got the most out of the time he had, which can't be said of everyone.

Gratitude is a wonderful gift we give ourselves, and he will be a role model for me when I feel aggrieved or ill-treated. And how generous of spirit he was to think about others who are, were, and will be in a similar situation with insurance companies.

I'm so sorry for your loss, and ours. He was a great person.

We'll miss him.



MedicalAdmin was another victim of our for-profit healthcare industry ... Question for you rightwingers lurking: You are usually "Christians" -- So why don't you care about the tens of thousands of yearly deaths of innocent Americans, people who can't get treatment or timely treatment due to the power and greed of the health insurance industry? Who would Jesus deny coverage to, hmm?

Thank you so much for taking the time to post this in the midst of all you are enduring.

Your husband was a brave soul to share with us the criminal - yes criminal and evil and heartless - ways he was treated by the insurance ghouls.

My heart breaks for your family, yet I am glad you have hope for a new beginning. I am crying with you right now - and will for days as I remember his posts.

Please feel free to join in here any time you need to - we are here for you.

May he rest in peace, and may you and your family find new strength to carry on.

It's a real loss to DU, but how much worse it would be if we never knew. Thank you for that and it must have been hard, expressing such personal feelings to a bunch of strangers that you've only heard about, but you did so quite eloquently. As you can see, your husband had many friends and fans here. I always enjoyed his posts. He will be terribly missed, so your message is much appreciated. And, as your husband knew, we're a pretty nice bunch. If you ever need us, feel like talking, we're here. Take care of yourself and know that DU will be thinking of our friend Medical Admin, and of you...

117. Lee Ann....

There are no words sweet enough to comfort you and your loss.

I work as a Nurse and in one post I was ranting about the Health Care/ Insurance/Hospital Administration. Imagine my surprise when your wonderful husband agreed with me. That lead to many wonderful exchanges on DU. He was always on the side of medical staff that were trying to do the best patient care with the awful hand they were dealt. I think he had a special place in his heart for Nurses, and he certainly has a special place in mine. I thank goodness he sent that last e-mail and I was able to say my sad goodbye. I find some comfort in the fact I let him know how much I admired and respected him. I regret that we could not have had more conversations.

I know how hard it is for you and I appreciate you thoughtfulness in letting his extended family know of his passing. The world is a sadder place for his absence.

I hope to channel my anger into positive actions, I know he would have wanted it that way. I wish for you only the best in your new journey. Think of us with kindness and wish us the best as we continue to fight the good fight.

Love and comfort,

Anne D. RN

In the meantime, please know that the well wishes and kind comments here have touched me deeply. I now have a greater understanding of why he loved this place. Thank you all so much for your thoughts and prayers.

His gracious replies to everyone, including me, were very moving. I think that OP should be read over and over again as he was a true advocate for those who were victims of our predatory HC system.

I cannot imagine your pain right now but hope that just knowing the difference he made in the lives of so many people who came to know him, helps just a little.

Take care of yourself
