Just a couple quick updates

My newest gal showed up yesterday. She's the pretty one on the right. The Geppeddo one I mentioned before is the little one in front of her with the pink hat.

On the medical front: Yesterday hubby called the dr in the morning. Damned if it wasnt afternoon before they called. He was told to report to the radiology department at the dr's office for a CT scan of his belly. We get there and are informed that the insurance wont cover a scan from there but to take our paperwork to the hospital (which is merely the next building over) and get the scan there. Ummm, these people are in the same "group" so why cover the one office and not the other? At least the dr's office worked with us and found a loophole so the scan would be covered (stupid insurance companies and their damn friggin hoops ya gotta jump through). So we go to the hospital and get the scan done and we're informed that it'd be 30 minutes before it's ready to go on home and the dr would call. We figure 30 minutes is going to be after the dr's office closes so we swung by the Wendy's around the corner from our house to pick up something to bring home for dinner. We arrived home at 10 minutes until 5pm. The dr office had already called not 5 minutes before we arrived home (10-15 minutes after the scan was done). Called them right back and ended up on hold for over 20 minutes and said :P~~ on that. They called this morning (early too, @ 830am...) and said to watch for fever and extreme pain. If he had either to go straight to the emergency room. Looks like he's not going to pass this on his own as it's a whopper at 12 millimeters in size. They said they're going to "try" to get him in to thurologist today. Try??? This man's been on meds since MONDAY! I think if someone comes in with that amount of pain you should just automatically send them for a scan the same day. Then he wouldnt be off work for as long... mind you hubby is paid by the hour and makes a substantial amount per hour so every day lost is a HUGE bite out of the check. He worked only 1 day this week... 14 hours maximum. My luck they wont call until Im in my PT appointment. Lord I need a drink.....

The phone just rang, it's the dr office. He has a 2pm at the urologist.

Oh and Alice, that post option thingy....I never noticed. Thanks for the heads up!

Are they gonna try that shock treatment thing where they try to break up the kidney stone without surgery? Sure do hope they find a quick solution for Ranger either way. It's not easy being off work with no sick days to compensate. I end up using my vacation days when I'm sick. Nice vacation, eh? :(

And you're welcome. I just happened to notice that this morning, so tried it out and it worked.

Thanks, that's only part of them. I'll post the other pix in another blog.

Will be writing another blog in a few with today's results but yes, they're going to try to do a noninvasive method first.
