  1. Yes, it is considered paid the year you incur the debt. (Same as if you put a charitable contribution on your credit card on 12/31, that is a deductible contribution for that year.)

    The following quote is from the IRS Pub 502, Medical and Dental Expenses, 2008

    If you use a credit card, include medical expenses you charge to your credit card in the year the charge is made, not when you actually pay the amount charged.

  2. Meant to add... hope your MRSA clears up soon.

    I had a postponement to my surgery too. I was scheduled for mid-June but developed a rash on the back of my leg and in my groin area. Two days before surgery the dermatologist determined the groin rash was a raging yeast-type infection. She did not advise surgery at the time so I had to postpone for a month. While I was disappointed, it all worked out.

  3. I am just going to have to figure out what I need to do to get it to look right. I did something wrong somewhere.

    RobinAnn... any suggestions???

    I assume you mean the rounding and the centering?

    I'd choose all the blue blocks from Laptastic down (shift and mouseclick) and then click on the "align" icon. Choose "center". Keeping those same fields chosen, click on the "123" icon and choose "two decimals".

  4. I should have had my second fill today but had to reschedule due to a conflict with my husband's work travel (I have to travel across the state for my fills).

    I'm rescheduled for next Thursday (the 24th) and I really need it. I had some restriction until three days ago and it was like the floodgates of hunger were released. Struggling mightily this week. Next Thursday can't get here soon enough. I've only lost 16 pounds since surgery, but it's better than gaining, that's for sure.

  5. I am in :thumbup: I just need to update my Halloween ticker to the Turkey Day Challenge. :frown:

    I added my information to the spreadsheet but it did not calculate the information just FYI.

    Looking forward to losing with everyone :seeya:

    I'll take a look at the spreadsheet and fix it.
