    I hate making phone calls. So of course despite being told the assistant would call to set up an appointment for this test, I got no call. I had to call today. And no one told me the test couldn't be done at the same location. Now I have to call yet another person, to maybe finally make this appointment. Kind of expecting to be told they just aren't open on the days that I need to schedule for. Then I'll get to make another call to the closer but more annoying location. Not a fan of going downtown hate going to hospital and not sure if they lifted the ban on kids on the upper floors. I hate phone calls. Debating just being in pain forever at this point.
    Another one real quick. I hate calling a number getting the "this office is currently closed our hours are usually" and then the hours cover the time that your calling so there isn't a clear reason why they are closed right now. Of course they aren't giving me days they are open.

    Who collects co-pays and deductibles up front? There is a chance I'd need a payment plan just to pay for this test after I got the bill, but this office's policy to get everything upfront. So I guess I won't be going there.

    RM some of ours do, too. I went in for surgery a few years ago and had to pay my whole deductible and whatever they charged after that 20% blah blah blah. Yeah. They didn't do that when I went in for babies, though. Rotten.

    Awe ML so sorry to see that. Losing a pet is never easy.

    Thanks guys. The absurd thing about all of this is that his (the dog) best friend was a duck. Seriously. They slept together in the dogs house and spent the day patrolling the property together. You can't make this crap up.

    The duck is circling the van (the last place dog was seen by duck) and house quacking. It's been going on for hours and it will get dark soon.....poor duck.

    I feel as bad for the duck as I do for myself....sweet and sad, all in one.

    So sorry, ML. I hope you find comfort and peace.

    I hate that our family is suffering. We have been reveling in being homeschoolers this week as all the back to school craziness abounds around us, and looking forward to leaving on our annual vacation this weekend where we unplug, decompress, and reconnect before we jump into our busy fall "school year."

    But today was such a long harrowing day. MIL had a stroke. While traveling. So we drove quite a few hours to get to the hospital she's in. She's in pretty good shape, considering, but will be in the ICU for at least the next 3+ days, and I have no idea what the future holds after that. FIL has a history of serious heart trouble, so now we're concerned about him. This has been a massive stress on him. And he doesn't have a clue how to cook, do laundry, anything like that. And to top it off, SIL who has MS showed up at hospital with her DH and DD, and we hadn't seen her in a few months. She is in a very rapid decline and no longer able to work, drive, barely walking and talking. Her body can't handle her meds anymore and was hospitalized a few weeks ago. She is wasting away, and turning yellow. We've been awake for 20+ hours, driving with mad truckers through the middle of nowhere to sad and worrisome family situations. I hate how one phone call can change everything and leave your reeling.

    ejsmom, I am so sorry. It just all seems too much. Thankfully you and your husband have each other to lean on. It sounds like this will be a lot for him to process, especially.

    Comfort to your in-laws, and keep loving on the children (your son and niece).
