Well I wanted surgery this August .BE careful what you want. I am not getting my knee done on the 9th it has been pushed back until Sept 27th. I am having surgery on the 4th. I have to have an Angioplasty with a possible stint and an over night stay in the hospital away from my four legged family.The doctors office got the referral today and got me in immediately. Had another EKG and a echo sonagram.This doctor is nice and did a complete history.
Hubby insisted on driving me.What a disaster. We stopped for gas which I had to pay for and he pulled away from pump while still hooked up. It is gonna cost him to replace gas hose. Owner said he'd install it and for go the huge cost of installation.Of course it is my fault even though I wanted to be calm and go alone. I got screamed at for close to an hour. It was my fault he forgot because I told him to clean HIS cars windows.Male logic! He took wrong turns and almost crashed a few times he was so shaken, but I couldn't drive he was doing me a favor! When we got to the doctors I didn't let him go in with me. He is furious but I was better off without him there. I am trying to call in favors to have anyone else drive me to the hospital next Wednesday. I am hoping to get Bill to go with me. At least he doesn't drive me crazy and he doesn't harp on me.Sometimes quiet is a blessing.
My oldest is again employed. He is doing custom paving jobs in the Monterey area. I hate how beat up his body gets doing construction type work but he has a pay check and it is full time, four days a week.Something for now to cover the rent and pay for food.
After this procedure they may change a lot of my medication. I told the doctor it takes two weeks for my meds to come by mail order. If I fill locally it cost so much more. I suggested just a 2 week supply that I might be able to afford. He told me knee surgery is elective and I told him not according to my neurologist or ortho surgeon, not if they want me to stay up on my feet.If he puts down elective it could mess up my coverage by medicare.
Got a new replacement washer for the one that broke last week. Going to be fun catching up on everything. I gave in and covered half the cost. I out right paid for the other one. Do any of you married ladies have to buy your household items? I think he is just being a jerk.
Really tired but wanted to touch base with all of you.
