When I promised more interesting content a few weeks ago, this is not what I had in mind, believe me!
This is several orders of magnitude more than anything I thought would happen to me in my lifetime.
Because of that, I felt it important to let folks know how incredibly much Karen and I appreciate anything that you have done. we know how tight money and time are to almost everyone and we wanted you to know how grateful we are and how important everything that you give it to us. It doesn't matter whether it's a large amount or whether it's a small amount or even if it's just best wishes, it all helps!
There are good days and bad days involved with the condition like this, but I think what bothers me the most currently is just simply not knowing what the root problem is. They still have absolutely no idea after all these months and all the tests
The big bills are starting to roll in now,as expected. This will be all the stuff that the insurance doesn't cover.
What's really frustrating for both of us, is that we're going to be responsible for a great deal of the non covered bills and we have nothing to show for it we are literally shelling out all the money we have on health expenses and I'm no better than I was when we started.
I see Dr. H, the heart surgeon on Monday. Hopefully then, we'll have some more details about what's going to happen in the immediate future.
The healthcare system in Arizona is such an incredible zoo that it's hard to believe that anybody gets treated and survives. You really have to learn to be your own advocate in so many different ways.
It really gets bizarre when the patient has to learn to read their own charts and medical histories just so they can correct the mistakes doctors have made or points in history that they've overlooked.
As I've observed before, it's all about the almighty dollar. Big problem is that apparently never going to change.
My heart literally breaks for the thousands of people right in our own City of Phoenix they don't have any insurance and they don't have the knowledge to even come close to navigating the healthcare zoo.
Well, it's about two days since I stopped dictating the above. It's Sunday evening and I have a nice bladder bleed started.
The wife and I are actively watching it hoping we will not have to go into the emergency department again.
This condition is so aggravating! It seems to flare up whenever we have important things to do within a short period of time.
The important thing here is how heavy the bleed really is. Is it light enough that we can wait a day, two days or more or is it heavy enough that if we don't go in tonight I could bleed out. That's the kind of crap we deal with all the time.
More updates forthcoming. Have a nice day
