Well, definitely not frugal after the Ikea trip and ordering my new glasses yesterday.
The eye doctor is a really nice man and told me my macular pucker looks stable. He also said because of the diagnosis(?) not sure of its term, under Medicare it’ll be covered. So that was a relief. The glasses I have now are called Lindberg, made in Denmark and I love them. They are expensive but since these lasted me 5 years and really I could have just kept them as my prescription hasn’t really changed. But I felt before jumping off the boat into Medicare, I better do all this stuff I can now.
Speaking of which, I was going to go into their office this morning but I’ve just had it with this week so I’ll wait till next. When I called to make the appointment, the person said: “oh, you can’t make appts for that, you just have to go in and take a number”. Great. More waiting. So that’ll be next week.
So, today is a gym day. And then to the store for a few items, cat food, half and half, and some deli stuff.
I talked with the UHC transplant person and unfortunately, the brothers travel and lodging is not covered so that was kinda a bummer and the billing is probably when he comes out of the hospital, so we know that’s going to be June. So we will have the full deductible which ( based on what they said before)is $6,000. So we’ll just ask for payments to be made or use as much as the GFM that will be left after paying for the brother’s flights and lodging. I’m seriously, not going to worry about it. I’m sure there will be enough stress with this whole thing to go around.
Dinner is an order out pizza. Round Table gourmet veggie, I think.
All in all, it’s been a good week. Next week is insanely busy with appts. Another biopsy, pulmonary stress test, and who know what else. But one foot in front of the other and JUST KEEP WALKING!!!
