and it's only Wednesday!

It's been a rough week ( I know!  It's only Wednesday!).  I just feel myself getting very impatient and frustrated with tiny day-to-day things.  For example, just looking at my pile of laundry gets my blood pressure up.  Or the dishes, vacuuming, mopping, errands, etc.  Ay yi yi!

So, in an effort to maintain sanity around here, my dear hubby stayed home from work today to help me out and take care of me and my brain (and the kids too).  I am so grateful for his help and willingness to take care of us.  I don't even want to imagine what it would be like without him here.

Anyway, we finally worked out our insurance situation so I scheduled my first post-surgery MRI.  It will be on the morning of November 20th.  I'm looking forward to the MRI because I feel like we'll have some answers once it's done.  Also, we will be getting the results immediately after the MRI is complete, so no waiting around either.  It will be nice to have it behind us with either a positive ("see ya in 3 months for your next MRI") or negative ("we should begin radiation immediately") response because with so many unknowns, it's helpful to have at least one solid known.

I'll keep you all posted on how the MRI goes and the insurance hoops we have to jump through in regard to that.  Did you know that going to the hospital for an MRI is more expensive than going to a freestanding radiology office?  Therefore, I have to go to this freestanding place, then go to the hospital to have my results read.

Well nap time is almost up, so adios for now!  :)

I love your blogs. You will publish a book someday. I'll be keeping my fingers crossed for good news on the 20th!

How do the insurance hoops work? Are they on fire or at ridiculously tall heights? Did you have to go through the hoop and then through a pool filled with crocodiles? Was there any boat? I love the blog and I hope you keep it up.
