The Andy Hardy films with Mickey Rooney and Judy Garland were pretty much crap, but there is something about the concept that I admire. They were problem solvers. Something goes wrong or the town is in need and you could count on Andy Hardy to shout out to his cohorts, " Let's put on a show!!" Every body would join in, "What a great idea!" A stage would be made of something scrounged up by the "kids" and a suitable backdrop would be created. There would be singing and dancing, money would be raised and yet another wacky crisis would be averted.
I have stated before that I am not big on the positive attitude thing. Life takes more then an attitude. You have to put some legs under whatever "positive" work you are trying to achieve. It's easier to get those legs if you have a few Andy Hardys in your life.
I don't have an Andy Hardy. I have people who stand around and say stuff like, "What do you want to do that for?".... "Don't you think you have other stuff to worry about now?"...."I wouldn't want to be responsible for that"
Yesterday, we saw Mac's Dr. This was his regular oncologist. He doesn't want to be responsible for Mac as he still has GVH. However the Iowa City Dr. does nothing to treat the GVH. We simply continue and wait and see how he looks next month... and next month... and next month... and next month.
It is a new year and the next visit to Iowa City will cause us to have to meet a deductible again. That's a thousand .... a thousand that we don't have. Then there is the gas to get there and back. That's another eighty bucks which we also don't have.
I don't need another dumb ass to tell me this is just the way it is and there is nothing we can do about it. I need an Andy Hardy to ride shotgun for me. I need to find a way to change this.
