Praying for you too. These are the days of the Summer Solstice, in my Hawaiian Culture, we have 4 of these “set your best intentions days.” Praying all the while. Sticking you into tonight’s prayers as the sun goes down to take it to the Ancestors (yours!) Go Henry, and your other folks, and Mary!!

On edge. The myelogram is tomorrow… had to take two days off for it and it may not happen! And if it doesn’t happen, I will be canceling on short notice, which I don’t feel is right.

Also canceling on the second surgeon, on short notice. Already canceled on the first surgeon on short notice. None of this is my fault, but I wonder now, if anyone wants anything to do with me! I mean, I’m a charity case at this point. 🙁

And I have no (needed) rides to anywhere, seeing as I don’t know when and where I might be going.

The second surgeon’s appt is a FIVE HOUR round trip.

I can’t imagine why I’m pissed… which won’t help at this point.

Back on the first surgeon’s schedule. No Myelogram.
Bad news is I will be delayed!  First available was end of June… no way would I have surgery on that day – it’s a train wreck.

So I will have to wait for a number of weeks… courtesy UHC!

Yes, it’s delayed A LOT but I am settling into it. I can see some advantages, like enjoying my summer, painful as it may be!
And the surgery day is a good one – hard to manage, with the sky the way it is!

Glad you are back with the first surgeon and you’ve got a date you like, even if it is a bit far off! 

Did you turn down the end of June day because of transits or logistics?

I was offered July 27th
sun in leo, moon in scorp, uranus t-square
Mars in aries sq Mecury in Cancer sq Capricorn… t-square

I have to drive (to the city) day of surgery. It’s just too much.

Also, Venus sq Neptune, exact.

LOLOLOL

I said, I would take first available… then I saw the chart.

Really, I was in such peace and it was so disrupted. This will give me a chance to restore my equilibrium. I feel good about it… or better, just as soon as I canceled the awful test and the 5 hour drive appt.

I’ve distinguished myself with this team, at this point. This was not the case, before I was canceled. I liked (and saw) them. They did not see me. Now we’re balanced. They will be sure to take care of me – I left the head of the spine deal to go back to them. It was also good for them to get the story…

They were as baffled as I was. Wondering why they would let me see him in the first place, if they would not allow him to perform the surgery.

This was what I asked the (UHC), over and over. I got so many blow-offs and non-answers, it’s not even funny.

I signed over access to my medical records under total coercion and duress. Like this:

“What records?”
“All your records?”
“You’re not entitled to ALL my records…”

Bottom line, if I don’t give access to my records, I can and will not be covered for surgery. I did UNcheck access to my DNA – I’m serious. I did limit the years going back but the fact is, they made it clear, I could not have surgery unless I applied. I formally appealed this and was denied, virtually instantly.

I don’t think there was a single phone call, where I did not state, there was an error being made. I was quite bitchy, generally speaking, and thought it was in everyone’s best interest.

If you will take one minute to check what I’m saying, you will find out you are wrong and we can all stop suffering…

I don’t know why people think I am a liar and an idiot. I actually got a card in the mail today, thanking me for calling for help. Are you kidding me?

I also think they sent me a BOOK from Amazon, though it might have been someone else. I don’t think so, though. I think my INSURANCE company sent me a book on not having back surgery.

LOLOLOLOLOL

It’s unbelievable, like the rest of my life.

I told, Jilly, the other day, I was going to ask someone close to me, “Hey! Seeing as I’ve never lied to you, not once in your entire life, what in the world, makes you think I am lying about this?”

Damned Neptune is something else. Just make shit up, you know? Make up rules (Saturn) out of vapor (Neptune).

The other thing is, I am really busy right now and *needed*. I feel good about being available to help. Then I will go to surgery, glide in and glide out, as planned!

Gosh, you are not wrong when you describe the situation as unbelievable. What a crazy world we live in 😄. 
Good to hear you’re busy & will be able to glide in & out 😎.

Thanked the nurse today. Had I not run across her…well my policy may have been lost for the rest of my life…my husband too!

Turns out, it’s a true unicorn. For one thing it’s a frito lay policy, not PepsiCo. She said it looks like nothing she’s ever seen.

Pulled from the trash heap. Thanks be to God!

UHC still trying to figure out how this stuff was attached to my policy. Hero nurse waiting for new pre-auth to come through so she can okay it.

I requested the doc’s scheduler do this today. The nurse sends it through and then “medical” will authorize and  we’ll be back on track, fully.

“But this is not my policy.”

“This is your policy…”

It’s like being marched in front of a firing squad and you’re not the guy! Matter of fact, you’re a girl and they simply can’t tell because you can’t tell them, even though your words are succinct and clear.
