    Hi, friends. Have you or a loved one been struck by a chicken? Subsequent times? Would you say that you have a chronic disorder as a result of being struck by chickens on numerous occassions?

    Are you worried that your unsurance just won't pay for the medical costs of your pre-existing chicken struckiness?

    Worry no more.. according to the Wall Street Journal.. the federal goverment has recently expanded its list of medical codes used by hospitals and physicians from 18,000 to 140,000 different codes.

    I was rescuing it (I worked at a rehab facility (for sea lions!!!), they are a bit cranky when they are sick and/or injured.
