Mixed blessings  
The Bad: a storm damaged some shingles on my roof and the roof dude from my insurance says I need a new roof.
The Good: I needed to replace the roof sometime in the next five years or so anyway and now the insurance will pay for it, excepting the deductible.

The Bad: my brother has a several health issues, some similar to mine but more severe, plus some degenerative knee issues that make it hard for him to work, much less find a job with health insurance to cover his issues.
The Good: he got accepted for disability this week - on the first try! So now he can see the doctor appropriately and hopefully get through school successfully. He's actually been making great strides to that end already - his other big news was that he'd made the Dean's List! This is HUGE for him as he never was a scholastically inclined fellow. :)

As they say, all's well that ends well...

I remember my free roof - years ago - always nice when that happens!
Health related - I can so totally feel for you. Got my blood tests in the mail today. I'll be posting on it shortly.
