Our granddaughter will live.

We have a nine-year-old granddaughter with a very complex set of medical problems: cerebral palsy, dystonia, immune deficiency, etc. She's an angelic, bright child. Last year she ended up at the top of her third-grade class despite missing over half the school days because of her illnesses and hospitalizations. She is a mighty soul who someday will make a meaningful contribution to her society--if she is allowed to survive. Thanks to the healthcare reform, we no longer have to worry about her outrunning the lifetime cap on her benefits; we can see that she'll be able to stay on her parents' insurance until she gets launched on her own career; we can see that she won't have her career start preempted by an employer's fearing a crushing bill for employee medical insurance. Thank God for this president and this Congress for their courage in passing this healthcare reform!
