Week 30 – On Time!

Yea!  I remembered to update my blog on time this week!  Woo-hoo!  Of course, it helps that I’m sitting at home instead of in some airport terminal or on the road.

Yesterday I received a surprise call from the hospital I was in.  “Will you need financial assistance to pay off your $14,000 balance?”

“HUH?!?!?”

I’m still battling with the insurance and hospital over my second admission back in January.  Anthem says they didn’t do a pre-authorization for my trip to the emergency room, so therefore they’re not going to pay until they get the medical records to review.  I’ve been on the phone with the hospital several times over the last few months to try to get them to do that, and it hasn’t happened yet.

Then when I got home today, there was a bill in the mail from the X-ray service provider marked in big bold “PAST DUE.”  I had spoken with them and they put my account on hold the last time we talked, pending the resolution with the Anthem.

ARGGHHH.

And that’s all that I’ve got to say about that.

BIOLOGY AHEAD
One of the things that happened to me after the surgery was having a near constant irritation or itching in my urethra that gave me the sensation that I had to go to the bathroom nearly all the time. I’d make frequent trips to the bathroom even though my bladder was relatively empty. It got to be a bit annoying to say the least.

In the last week, that sensation has been greatly reduced for whatever reason. As a result, I’m running to the bathroom less and feeling much more confident as I move around. I hope that keeps up.
