Back On The Medical Treadmill
Looks like we're back on the medical treadmill again.
Thursday my appointment for my semi-annual blood test at the VA Outpatient Clinic in Georgetown. I see my doctor this week on May 1st for the results of that blood test. Always a nervous time because of my past history of prostate cancer. So far since my seed implants a back in 2013 (was it really that long ago?) my PSA score has been down. Hopefully I get the same results this time.
Yesterday I had an appointment with my dermatologist. I had a couple of pre skin cancer spots that had to be burned off. They're scabs now.
I had a little dustup in the office when I was asked to fill out AGAIN a six page form of my medical history. WHAT? I just filled that out the last time I was there eight months ago. I noticed that everyone in the office was new. Guess they threw out all that paper work I filled out last time. I think I've filled out at least four times paper work in that office. And I didn't even get to see my doctor, saw the physician assistant instead.
Monday I get an X-ray to make sure my kidney stones haven't returned.
Tuesday is Bill's appointment with Doogie Howsie to treat his edema.
Today I had additional frustration. I got a notice from my new insurance company that they're cancelling my homeowner's policy because they couldn't do an exterior inspection of my house. WTF? I suspect they couldn't find my house because when I initially changed insurance companies they got my address wrong. My address is 30231. They put it down as 302301. It's been nothing but a nightmare ever since with that old address popping up. I called but the office was closed today. I left a voice mail. I have to say I am concerned. If they can't get my address right what else are they screwing up? I don't know, is it me or do things seem to be, uh screwed up lately? First I have to fill out my whole medical history again then my new insurance (Allstate) can't even get my address right.
At least we finally got a spring like day today. No cold winds and rain, just a nice sunny day. At least something is right.
