Just when you think you finally might have all your ducks in a row, one of them drowns!
For months now, have been waiting to squeeze in the opportune moment for hubby to have his dental work done. Have kept in contact with oral surgeon regarding all the various setbacks. Last Friday, they called to schedule the surgery and then informed me that my portion would be $2,200, UPFRONT. Now, I realize that everyone has to make a living. I explained that we don't have that kind of money, and offered to make payments, right along with those 5 hospitals, soon to be 6, and countless doctors, but "no go".
So, got our Clinical Navigator(who I discovered is our "go to" person at MDA) to find out who they use for extractions. Unlike, MDA in Houston, the one here does not have a Dental Onc. on staff. Just feel like for every 3 steps forward, there's at least 5 steps back. Don't we all feel that way? LOL
Appt. this afternoon for Pre-Op for Urology surgery to be done this Friday. Fingers crossed that catheter bag will be removed before upcoming radiation.
Luv and good thoughts to each of you,
