I made it to Tuesday....OK..so that may not seem like a big achievement, since we still have 3 days to go this week, but hey...everyday I wake up and get though it is a good one, right?
No a lot happening here today. I called to make a Dr appt for hubby. His shoulder is really hurting. He was suppose to have surgery on it a few yrs ago and never did. Now he's paying for it. He was going to call and make the appt, but I told him I would. I called the Dr office about 11 this morning, waited 20 mins on hold only to be told our PCP didn't have an opening until March 20th! REALLY?? 3 friggin' MONTHS? But wait....since hubby was in pain...he could see another Dr in the office on Feb 19th! Only a month away.
OK, so what part of "he's in PAIN" did they NOT understand? I think she (the appt lady) could tell I wasn't happy. She then said we could always go to Urgent Care or a Take Care Clinic. I told her I'd talk to hubby about it. I called hubby and talked to him, he was pissed and taking it out on me (left over grouchiness from the not smoking maybe?). I told him to hold on...I was on HIS side. Anyway...we decide to make a appt at a Take Care Clinic for tomorrow afternoon, these are in a couple of Wal-Marts here in Vegas. We've used them before and didn't have a problem with doing so (for my sinus infection, hubby's cold, etc). They are staffed with Drs and PAs, although the couple of times we've gone we have been seen by a Dr. We can also do an E-Visit, where we e-mail our PCP and she's suppose to answer back in 24 hrs. However I'm not sure what she can do via e-mail. We may try that tonight too. Hubby can then express how he feels about this. Esp since he did have a talk with our PCP about this same issue last time he did get to see her.
And then tonight we'll talk about maybe looking for another Dr. I hate doing that. It's a pain in the butt and, like this situation, you don't what you're getting until you have signed up.
Eating last night was OK and so far today too. I didn't get to use an elliptical at lunch, they were all occupied. So I used a treadmill instead. Worked out the same. The ladies in the locker room were trying to talk me into joining a 7 Am yoga class. HA! I'm lucky to be out of the house by 7 each morning, and besides...I'm fat and uncoordinated, no yoga for me!
That's here from where I set in my cube...in the vast cube farm of work! Have a great Tuesday everyone!
