Lots of excitement going here in Omaha. I started the month off with taking care of my mom before, during & after surgery. She was able to go back home last Thursday, and is doing well. She has never been sick, doesn’t take medications and hasn’t had to have surgery since 1972, so the whole hospital experience was new for her (by the way, she just turned 76 last month)! I’ve now realized how often we forget to update important documents, like wills and advance directives. My mom hadn’t updated anything since before my dad died in 1996. I was a little bit worried since my brother was listed as the only Medical Guardian, but I was the one handling all of the medical things with my mom. I also realized that my will has not been updated since BEFORE my son was born (he is now 21)! Whoops…

So, just a reminder to everyone out there – remember to update your wills/advance directives, or at least review them once a year (like at Benefit Election or Tax time). Or for individuals in service, at annual planning time. Better to be safe than sorry!

On the Therap home front, we are now beginning Health Homes in Kansas. Are any other states out there with Health Homes who use Therap?
