I have a surgery scheduled…finally. He will go in and see what it is and go from there. Once I find out what it is and if he needs to remove anything, fix anything, etc…then my daughter will be there. My husband will be a phone call away. We can’t afford for him to take a day of work off. Our health insurance is through his employer and is based off of how many hours he works. If he has less than 80 hours (in two weeks) then they end up taking more out of the check than normal for the insurance premium. The premium is high enough as it is and to take anymore out…we just can’t afford it. Since he hasn’t been there quite a year he isn’t eligible for vacation pay, sick pay or any of the extra benefits.
I truly wish he could be there but I know it just isn’t possible right now. We will know more soon enough. I am praying this is some simple fix and all my symptoms will be gone. On a side note, don’t you hate it when you get a doctor who may be a good doctor but their bedside manner isn’t what it needs to be. The surgery had to point out that I was a ”bigger” girl. Thanks Captain Obvious for pointing that out to me since I really never knew that. I mean after having a spinal surgery that managed to mess up things more and ended up with diabetes as a result…well lets just say being a bigger girl is the least of my worries. I am asking for your prayers. So the next time you pray, include me and my family. We would do the same for you and yours. God Bless.
