Made It To Tuesday!

Tuesday, January 22, 2013

emoticon 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? emoticon

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. emoticon 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. emoticon

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!

    Boy that cartoon nailed it, didn't it? Our insurance company turned down one of the 'scripts' that the PA gave Arn. They told Arn he had 180 days to challenge their decision. So we went to see the PA to get a letter from him to send with Arn's letter to the insurance company. We picked it up at the front desk, brought it home and read it. Well, tried to read it... It was obvious he had recorded it and one of the girls had transcribed and printed it out. He didn't bother to read it apparently. There were grammatical errors, punctuation errors, she even referred to Arn as "her" in one part.

    I nearly died. I've been a secretary since 1972 and I have NEVER seen anything like that leave an office. It looked like the janitor filched a piece of letterhead and wrote Arn's letter. Don't they teach these people how to read and write proper English anymore? Hangs right up there with deciding we don't need to teach writing in school now. It's ok to print. (Pet peeve of mine.)

    Anyway, yesterday Arn mailed the letter BACK to the PA with CORRECTIONS and told him he could NOT send it to the insurance company that way, that it was totally unprofessional. Who knows what the PA will think or do. Sigh...

    So I get where you're coming from about docs. I'm just waiting for the Star Trek technology to kick in where they can diagnose you with a tricorder and then fix you asap!
