The good thing about the laptop (among many things)....is that I can recline in bed with the laptop propped against the wall on it's side and doze off if I want...Netflix will let me watch it again if I fall asleep. Although there was no danger of dozing off last night. Last night was actually a big TV/movie night. I was having a hard time breathing, so I was plopped in the couch with the O2 tank for a while. I watched episode 2 of "The Big C". It's so strange to watch someone deal with cancer and not tell anyone. I did that for a short time....but now I tell everyone. Then I watched "Criminal Minds". Finally, I moved to bed and watched the movie.
Got a call about a medical bill at 8:46 am. So four hours of sleep. I explained the whole insurance situation and it's Tuesday resolution. The woman asked for the name of the person I spoke with at Blue Cross. I told her I didn't remember, but all she needed to do was resubmit the bills. You see, after fourteen years working on billing medical equipment, I know how this works. She said she needed the name of the person and a reason to resubmit. I patiently explained that I had just given her the reason. We went through it two more times before I lost my temper and told her that I knew that wasn't necessary because of my work experience. I also explained that they needed to get a move on because Blue Cross has a 90 day billing window and they better be in it. I further explained that I was in active chemotherapy and had only fallen asleep at 4:25 and now I was hanging up on her and going back to sleep.
And I hung up. She has called back twice, but I am not answering. Re-tahd!
But of course there was no going back to sleep, so I got up and drove Jen to work. I still have no car due to another stupid insurance problem that I almost have worked out.
As I left I remembered that besides the rose oil, I needed grape seed oil as well. There is another health food store across from Home Depot so I popped in there. They had the rose abolute, so it was a good stop.
I made my bed, cleaned my room, called Kate, my nurse practitioner (who let me off the hook on drinking the icky tomato juice - turns out there is too much sodium in that) made French toast from stale bread (with 2 eggs at 75 mg potassium each) and powdered sugar on top, sectioned an orange (326 mg potassium), poured a glass of whole milk (325 mg of potassium), washed my dishes, unloaded the dishwasher, cleaned the kitchen, made my body scrub....it smells fantastic!
After I clean up breakfast, I will head up the hill for my last day of cleaning out the old house.
Still bummed out that I couldn't be in DC for this -
