What's new with you?
Through all this Butchy has been very patient and wonderful. Sure, she gets cranky....but, if she didn't then I'd wonder who had invaded her body. Overall, though, she qualifies for sainthood. I'm working hard at not whining. That's the ONLY work I'm doing. It is pretty hard work....being trapped & crippled is not something I will ever be good at.
My wonderful HMO (I'm saying "wonderful" very facetiously & sarcastically & a whole bunch of other words that mean I don't mean what I'm saying) has finally approved me for a wheelchair! WOO HOO! Only problem is that the vendor they use to provide wheelchairs to their premium-payers SUCKS!!!! For a week they have had the referral....waiting for the approval. Approval arrives, Kat can go back to work....life is good, right?!? WRONG!!! They NEVER HAD THE WHEELCHAIR!!!! The wheelchair they were s'posedly delivering to me last Weds cuz I had said that I would pay for it and get reimbursed by my wonderful HMO. Then the vendor called and said, "Oops, we quoted you the wrong monthly rate, it's actually $100 more!" To which I said I couldn't afford that....isn't it funny how you can't afford much when you're not working?!? Friday, as soon as the HMO from Hell approved my wheelchair I called the vendor.....get that chair to me ASAP! Was told they would have it to me by lunchtime......2pm comes along and I get a phone call.....this is when I find out they DON'T HAVE the chair!!!! Isn't that some wonderful customer service?
So, now the SUCKY vendor has the chair "on order." Supposedly I'll have the chair on Tues or Weds.....this is only costing me an additional $400 in lost wages! I'm seriously considering having a chat with a lawyer.....
There is light at the end of the tunnel, though.....I'm pretty sure it's not a train....I should be back to work in the nearish future. I can't believe how much I miss my job! I miss leaving the house, being out in public, wearing clothes (as opposed to wearing my jammies all day).....I miss having an answer to "what's new with you?"
So, what's new with you?
