Gosh Chart I am unsure how you would go about telling your doctor that you can not see him anymore. I guess tell him flat out about the insurance change. Ask if he could please compile a report and medical file package with cover letter. That you will pick it up later in the week? Hopefully, he will help you with the transition. A lot to deal with just before the holidays.
Grain, SE and South, gosh it sure is good that you all have medium pain. Thank goodness, all three of you have had a hard time with pain the last few weeks (months more like). With a little luck it will hold steady through the holidays
Joann I sure hope your appointment went well today. Be sure to give us an update on your appointments this week when you get a chance.
Joy, goodness, you must be down right exhausted to your very core by now. I too hope the MRI shows what is going on with your shoulder. You have had so much going on and so much extra pain on top of everything you already deal with on a daily basis. I sure hope they can get the MRI results back quickly.
Skeye, I hope you like the other Vet School better. Flying this time of the year is hecktic to say the least! I must admitt I had to re-read your post twice. Did I read that right? Are your pain med PRN now?? If so, oh my gosh darned goodness what a blessing! How awesome is that?!?!
Paula. Girrrrly. You know you can't be doing that kind of cleaning! I can only imagine how sore you are. Well... okay, so next time you get a itch to clean you can come by my house. I will even make you enchillidas and chocolate! My husbands bathroom is... *shiver* Goodness, I sure am sorry you have to find a new doctor. Literally there is 10 of our loving members who need to find a new doctors. I would be scared to death. Still am. My insurance changes next month and I am so worried they will come back and say "Nope! No deal! You need a new doctor!". At the beginning of this year when all of my doctors changed it was easy.. sorta, I was scared. But all my records documents, all of it even cover letters and meetings were all done long before I met the new ones. I think I would be a nervous wreck if I were in your shoes. You will have to give us a update and let us know how it goes.
...my turn I guess....
Well, I got the first batch of gift bags out today. 15 Medium bags. I will get the second batch out on friday (16 Extra large and medium) along with the candy platters for the girls Christmas parties. Then Monday I will mail off green chili, chocolate bags and gifts. Only 9 though. Then it really is complete! I am excited to hear what everyone has to say about the candies this year. I had wanted to do buckeye candy.. but I just couldnt squeeze them in. I did manage to squeeze in cream cheese truffles and I am anxious to hear the reviews I have taken a lot of pictures today and I will take more on friday and monday morning. When I went to put todays pictures on my computer... only my "background" showed up. No Icons for anything So, hopefully my husband can fix my computer when he comes home for lunch tonight.
Pain wise, suprisingly is still rather high a majority of the week. Strange I am doing much less... still it is a tug of war. I will bring it up with my spine specialist when I see her in a few weeks. I get fresh images then to, so we can really see what the heck is going on and how much I have progressed over fall and winter. I have a... feeling. Well, I know I have pogressed quite a bit. As much as I would like to ignore it, physically the signs are obvious. They were VERY evident when I went clothes shopping. !!Not gonna worry about it right now. I will put it out of my mind. No use worrying about it.
Speaking of doctors, normally I would have to do a few "end of the year" appointments this month but one of my husbands family members ran into a ruff patch. So, I had to reschedual them all. There is going to be 2 very hecktic weeks in january and febuary. I would have kept the appointments if it was possible, but 2800 was a bit cut from our finances on such short notice. It is a good thing I plan ahead for Christmas. With a little luck and a lot of prayer our loved family members can realx a little. Its not a loan, so there isnt a worry about anything needing to be paid back. I just hope they dont flip when they see the big deposit in their account. Lord knows they helped my husband and I that first year we were married more times than I can count!
Well... I suppose I should end this here. I am terribly sorry for all the spelling and grammar errors. My daughters computer doesnt have all the cool programs on it that mine does. No spelling checker. On a positive note, I must say I am getting used to the disney fairies theme song.. it is rather tranquil
