Subject: good use for $2000
Date: Tue, 19 Nov 2002 20:19:52 -0500

This summer I had to decide quick on whether or not to join the company's
new medical savings account plan. Since I'd wanted Lasik, I set the fund
amount fairly high... only to find I wasn't a candidate. Amazingly healthy
eyes that correct to 20-15 with glasses, (Very unusual for somebody who's
nearsighted enough to focus on their own nose, I was told.) but my corneas
are too thin.

So here I am, approaching the end of the year, and I've got $2000 that turns
into a pumpkin in a month and a half, if I don't spend it on something
medical, NOT plastic surgery, that my insurance doesn't cover. I can blow a
couple hundred on new glasses, but any suggestions for the rest, keeping in
mind I don't have long? I'm thinking some kind of cardiovascular test would
be a good idea. A Thallium scan, maybe? Nuclear stress test?
