I was sorry she didn't call me and let me know as I would have cancelled my appointment. Instead she picked me up. It was a 1/2 hr to 45 minutes drive depending on traffic. I had a 30 minute wait.
There was alot for me to tell him as I now have an upgrade Humanna/Medicare program. It is specific to Diabeties and Heart related issues, which luckily I do not have. I had rec'd paperwork he had to fill out - which he did immediately and faxed to Humanna. Now I wait to see if they approved the extended coverage. Fingers crossed.
Back to Dr M.... My BP was ok... low # is always in the 60's as I am so tall and skinny and very physical. I do have a bit of cholestrol problem though I am on a med for that anyway. Dr M is adding a smaller med that may help. I am still taking my diabetes med. YEA! 8-(
I am now on amlodipine twice Daily so Charlie and I take our meds at the same time. Luckily I had called his vet and asked about getting one of his pain meds renewed. The vet says that should be good for a couple of years. She said that all I need to do is call them and they will renew. I then told her that it has cost me $100 when I paid for the first order. She was stunned and said "oh no" that shouldn't have cost more then $30.
I am to call them back next week and she will give me the mail order site, etc., so I can mail order it my self. At$30. Whew! Thank goodness.
So I can get Charlies other med from Chewy for $23. I already refilled it three times. Not a big deal at all.
Ok back to what I will have done at the Imaging Center up near my Ds Ofc. Its a list of what Dr M wants done and not in a hurry.
But he says I should be able to get it all done in one visit. So here is the list.
1 - Carotid artery stenosis - if you remember I had my left artery cleaned in 2017. So this is a follow up.
2 - US, Duplex, Arterial, Lower extremity, complete.
3 - MRI Brain Scan for my Multiple Sclerosis.
4 - Mamos both breasts.
5 - Screening for Osteoporosis My entire skeleton.
It seems to be 8 scans. YA! Whoo! ROflol! I can't wait to see the results. I know that my neck is included in one or two. Plus my bones creak and do my jaws. My hands are aging as well.
So, one of my friends at the community ctr is taking me - we are to pick a dayor two then call the Imaging Center to get oky'ed. It may only take one day to get it all done. Wouldn't that be nice.
Well, I guess you won't see this for a while. Thanks OK - maybe by then they will all be done!
Please take care of yourselves. I know you are having a number of difficulties. Prayers, candles lit and thoughts being sent your way all the time
- for all of you!
Let me hear from you as soon as you can. Email if possible.
