I started to title this post Expletive Deleted LOL. When I went to that new doc the other day, he changed on of my meds. Well, deleted one because he didn't feel it was working right and replaced it with another. He did give me some samples to take to make sure I tolerated it. LOL I thought he had given me a month's worth as had happened with other docs..but no, he gave me 6 days worth. I had no problems with it and turned in the Rx on Monday to get it filled. Geez, when I went to pick it up I almost tumped over. $125.90! Do you realize how much yarn that would buy?!?!?! The one he replaced? Baby Aspirin...98 cents for over a month's worth! LOL The only saving thing is that I get my meds where I work and I don't have to pay for them from just one paycheck.
Today I *get* to have another MRI. Now I'm not scared of spiders or mice or things like that but I HATE MRIs. I know it is a foolish thing, it's not really gonna squash me and/or suck all my air out LOL but I get really panicky. Fortunately, I have some Valium that I am to take 30 min before it happens. Hey, maybe I'll dream up a new knitting pattern! Even this dang thing is becoming a problem. I can have it done where I work, but the doc doesn't trust theirs. So somehow I have to convince my insurance that it's necessary to have it done in the City. I asked that he write a letter with a medical reason why, and the letter said something like "Ours is better than yours" If the insurance doesn't buy this, it's another $500 out of my nonexistant yarn budget! Ack!
It could be worse. In this country, if you don't have money or kids your just up a creek without a paddle as far as medical care goes. Even with insurance, the bills I see people get are just incredible.
OK, in the knitting world. I spent part of yesterday working on the girl's hat. I don't think the 2x2 ribbing is going to work. I'm using Cascade 220 superwash that I had in my stash. I can't decide whether I want to use this yarn or something thinner. I have until Christmas to figure this out. I took it with me to the 4th burger/hot dog thing just so she would know I was working on it. I think she told everyone there that "Thats MY hat!" It's nice that the process is making her happy!
Other than that, I watched a bazillion hours of "The First 24" and something called "Beach Cops" or something. Both were rather interesting!
And I ate...a lot! It started raining just when we started to eat, so we didn't go to our friends' home in the country for fireworks but in this water-starved place, watching rain is even better!!
What did y'all do yesterday? Whatcha gonna do today? Me, I have to get ready for work!
