Pardon the Interruption 10-05-2011 - 11:10 AM
Yesterday, I didn’t feel like talking to anyone. Cramps started in the afternoon, albeit, I was able to get through a day at the office. Arrived home, cleaned a little more, separated my laundry {I’ll wash today}, unpacked my winter things, washed my hair then made dinner. Cramps became stronger! Since the surgery is Friday, I’m only allowed Tylenol. Although, I tried to sleep I tossed and turned until about 1:00 a.m. not because of the pain just thinking about what’s about to go down.

Cramps woke me up today around 5:30 a.m. I hurried to take some Tylenol, used the bathroom and I laid down until 7 ish, really didn’t want to get up. I made it to work by 9 and instantly started crying, can’t even remember what triggered it. In the ladies room, my colleague noticed and asked what was wrong, I told her it was my surgery and began balling my eyes out. Her words, you’ll be ok. After a few more outbursts I am starting to feel better.

I believe her. Despite the fact that I haven’t told anyone what my surgery is, everyone’s is supportive and I’m starting to realize how much I love the people I work with. It’s amazing how people come together when healing is needed. Or maybe is just because they love me, LOL Perhaps, that’s what triggered my emotions this morning. I’m going to miss everyone.

If I had to describe myself it would be that I’m extremely introverted {until you get to know me}, I’d rather do something than talk about doing it; seeing is believing! I enjoy proving a point for the sake of clarity and will argue both sides simply to expand my own knowledge.

Ok, where was? oh, yeah..yesterday…

The mail included my inpatient admission approval from the insurance company. All was well, approved based on medical necessity. However, I notice the approval is only for a 1 night stay. Well, my doctor told me it would be 3-4 days. Clarity… I called the insurance company to verify the information. Yup, it was correct. Per “Natalie” that is all the Doctor’s office requested, but if the visit is longer all they need to do is call. Emphasis on THEY. There is nothing I had to do; it was the doctor’s office responsibility. I’m cool with that. I’ll remind them again at the hospital. Clarity for everyone.

I contacted those I’m in debt too, {luckily, my home and cars are paid for} to request payment arrangements while I’m out of work. Thus far my debts for this procedure are $375 for the MRI, $235 for the GYN visits. I’ve yet to receive a bill for the UFE consultation. Everyone was glad to help me. I should be good financially receiving short term disability.

That reminds me, this morning I sort of…kind of, flipped out on the receptionist at my doctor’s off. I few weeks back, I contacted them to pick up the disability form rather than having them faxed or mailed to the workplace. {my company is small}.They haven’t called me back. Well tomorrow is my last day I work. I wanted to pick it up today to bring to work tomorrow. The receptionist starting quoting laws and stuff; I told her, if you’re going to charge me $15.00 to fill out the form, the least you all could do is, call me back to tell me when I can pick it up. Yada, yada, yada… I’m picking them up this evening. Then have dinner with my significant other.

**pops Tylenol**

Tomorrow’s enema day…
