I don't know how to even say this without crying...
There's a possibility Scott's surgery may get cancelled or postponed. He's supposed to have the surgery a week from today.
The doctor assured him last Friday that Scott's high blood sugar was caused by a side-effect from a blood pressure medicine he's taking. A simple change of meds should fix him right up... but they did a blood work-up to find out for sure.
He has type 2 diabetes and his triglycerides were TEN TIMES the normal limit. This is very dangerous and long term damage could result in pancreatitis. These problems can be controlled through diet modifications & MORE medicine. If the surgeon believes Scott's health is a risk - he may cancel surgery. We won't know any more until Scott meets with the surgeon in the next few days.
Scott went to fill his new prescriptions for the diabetes & triglycerides and was notified our insurance has been cancelled - cost us $150 for the pills. Ummmm.... according to the insurance company the COBRA insurance would continue with no problems (surgery was fine, prescriptions fine, appointments fine...) & the paperwork should arrive anyday now. The insurance co. sent the paperwork TODAY by mail (my last day of employment was Feb. 29 - Seventeen days ago!). What the heck?!? Why would they wait so long?
They said they should have gotten the papers to us sooner & they would gladly reimburse us any expenses we've incurred. Right. Do you think they'll question a $130,000 back surgery?
My eye is not better.
Linda leaves tomorrow.
Don't even get me started on the kids.
We need some good luck. Soon. Like the lottery or something.
