I woke up Thursday morning, fully prepared for a 5 hour Stress Test at the hospital. I had a very small bowl of cereal with a little milk and a 6 oz glass of juice which I was allowed as my test was not until 10:00 a.m. Drove to the hospital, signed in and sat down. Then they called me up to the window and said “You do not have an appointment today for a stress test” I got the paper that had been given me out of my purse and said “oh yes I do” Well it seems that there was a computer glitch and my appointment did not get entered on the computer, therefore the approval for the test had not been gotten from my health insurance company. One of the receptionists tried to call my insurance company but could not get through. So they had no choice but to reschedule my test for Monday the 7th of May. Now my surgery is Wednesday the 9th of May. This now gave me a lot to get stressed out over. The heart doctor could not approve my surgery with out the stress test.
Then when I called my doctor’s office to let them know what was happening they told me they could not find any paper work on the blood test I had taken April 11th. So since I was off from work anyway, I then left the hospital, went to the doctors office and had my blood taken again.
I debated about going into work, said no way went home and paid my bills for the month of May. Needless to say by the end of the day I was not a happy camper.
At this point I will really be surprised if I go to the hospital on Wednesday May 9th. I am beginning to think I am jinxed. There is a song “Oh Happy Days” , I wish I could have a few of them.
So anyway I did get a voice message today that said I had been approved by the insurance company for the test on Monday. Also got a call that they wanted me there at 9:00 a.m. instead of the 10:30 time on my slip.
Anyway the weekend will be better as the doctors offices are all closed. You all have a wonderful weekend also. Marge
