Nothing much to update today. Kitty has been up since 6:30 and non-stop playing and mischief. He won't take a nap, but I need one now. Dh is feeling ok today. Not super energetic and his voice is a little hoarse, but he's heading out to get the lawn mowed today. This might be a good time for me to put kitty in his crate and go take a nap, haha!
I'm glad I decided to take today off work. I have a call into the GI doctors office. I missed the part (if it was even clarified) that said if it was his office that would be setting up the referral for a consult with a surgeon or if we are supposed to have his primary care dr do that. The discharge paperwork they sent home didn't say. It's kind of strange. The paperwork even has color pictures from the scope done and the results and "recommendations", but nothing in the paperwork says about needing the gallbladder out.
We're feeling a bit nervous about currently having only one working vehicle. Before dh got sick and went into the hospital he tried calling this transmission place he wants to have put in the new transmission in his truck, but they never called back. He called there twice and left messages. My car is now 11 years old and over 130,000 miles. While it runs fine (knock on wood), you never know at this point. If I broke down, he couldn't even come and get me, or if we had to put my car in the shop, we have no other vehicle to use. So, we are contemplating this situation. We are the folks, that unless we plan ahead and make sure all our bases our covered, crap always goes wrong. So, I just know that most likely, while his truck is down, my car will decide to break down. It's just the way our life has always worked out.
I just received a medical bill in the mail from some imaging company for the ct scans and xrays dh had while in the hospital. I'm not sure exactly what service they performed, as the hospital billing already has these scans listed and charged. Maybe to read them? It's for 3 CT scans and 2 xrays for a total of $765. It says insurance was billed but shows no adjustment or payment by insurance, and when I log into the insurance it doesn't show any claims from this company or this amount. I tried to call them, but they are closed at noon on Fridays, so I'll have to wait. It appears they billed insurance, didn't receive anything back from insurance, so just billed me in full. So many details to stay on top of with all this. Everything else I've been billed for, so far, I can see the claim on the insurance log in and the patient balance is matching what they are billing me. This claim doesn't even exist on insurance list of claims, not even as an "In process" claim. Ok, I looked up this company and it is apparently for a radiologist to read the scans. I'm not paying until I see that insurance has processed a claim, so I'll call them Monday morning.
Ok, I'm going to take a nap.
