Medical Update - January 2016

         Well, the New Year started off not so good.  That is concerning our health insurance, thanks to our wonderful president.  I had my appointments scheduled at M. D. Anderson for January 5.  My first appointment, as always is for blood work.  Made that appointment with no hitches.  Next appointment was for my mammogram, go to sign in and they inform me that my account has been been blocked.  Due to change in insurance the beginning of the year.  Long story short, I was not able to have my mammogram or see my doctor.  So we went upstairs to cancel my appointment with my doctor and the receptionist said, "wait just a minute while I check to see if there is a charge for cancelling your appointment."  I tell Scott, "if there are any charges, they can send them to Obama."  Because of our wonderful insurance program, I can no longer keep my doctor at M.D. Anderson unless I can get a referral.

          When we got home from M.D. Anderson I sent a message to the nurse at my doctor's office to inquire about my blood work.  I wasn't sure they would give me the information for my CA-125, but they did and it was 9.7.  So at least, that is good.  Praise the Lord!

         Scott, has spent many hours searching for an insurance plan that we can afford and that will work for us.  He has spent many hours on the phone talking to many people who in the end have been of no help.  Today, (Feb. 10) he finally found us a PCP in Texas so we can have a doctor who will refill our prescriptions.  He has been working on this since the beginning of January.  We are not happy campers!!  I am sure there are many of you out there in the same boat.  We have an appointment the first week of March.  We will see how that turns out.
