Biography

My wife and I are full-time RVers and have lived on the road since the summer of 2009. This recent hiccup may curtail our continuous road trip for a while. I hope to use this blog as a journal and give encouragement to others as I receive the same.

Dealing with providers of services (such as labs) and the insurance company is a pain in the ptooie! If the referring facility sends inaccurate insurance information to the servicing facility, the insurance company will decline payment. It is all kinds of fun trying to locate a phone number for the lab that did the work. I got notice of a bill being declined because the Insurance company had the wrong id number on the claim. If I can't get that corrected, it is a $5200.00 bill out of my pocket.

Between going to doctors, labs and making tons of phone calls, cancelled and rescheduled appointments, this feels like a crappy part time job. And, I have not even got started on chemo. I am looking forward to getting into a routine.

Port consult tomorrow, and port placement on Friday (day after tomorrow). Did echo yesterday. So, I should be good to go on January 3, 2017 for my first chemo infusion.
