Home Again, Home Again. . .
Thank you so much for the kind comments and especially for your prayers.

Lee is doing well this morning. Our trip to the hospital was, as always, interesting. In fact, I tried to write about it last night and realized I was whining. I decided to wait until I was not so tired and was in a more positive mood!

The procedure Lee had yesterday was relatively minor and went off without a hitch. It only took about 30 minutes of actual time with the doctor. However, we left home at 8:30 and did not return until 3:00. And therein lies the tale.

Since I have promised myself I will not whine I will not tell the whole tiring story. I will just say that if you have ever wondered where the high cost of health care comes from, I had a peek at time and money being wasted yesterday! It wasn't in the operating area. The admissions procedure took almost an hour!--At a hospital that already has a large piece of computer space taken up with information about my husband. You would think a couple of clicks would take care of it! My! My! My!

The important thing is that Lee is doing great, we are home, and God is good!

Now we are looking forward to the return of E Girl and L Boy (and their parents, too) from Louisiana. They plan to be here sometime today and will be staying with us a day or two while they get a few things taken care of at their new address. We are looking forward to seeing them!

Have a Wonderful Wednesday!

As you say, the main thing is that Lee is home again and the procedure went well.
However, I do understand how frustrating it can be dealing with the hospital/ insurance issues.
Enjoy those grandbabies!!

Jiggity jig! ;D

I'm glad Lee is doing so well.

I know just what you mean about time wasted in doctor's offices and hospitals. Good grief!

Have a great time with the kids and grandkids. :-)

Love and hugs,

Diane

I'm glad all is well. I know just what you mean. There are days I wish I could get into the administrative offices and get them organized!!! We deal mostly with the VA - talk about wasted time and money!!! But I won't whine either. The bottom line is the very good care we get and the wonderful doctors God has provided for us. We are blessed.

So glad Lee is home and doing well. So sorry about all the wasted time. Too bad we don't get compensated for all the waiting time. We just might break even with the doctor bills!!

I was thinking just like Diane J. with her "jiggety jig!"

I am so glad that Lee is fine and healing and perhaps it will be a long time before you will need to access that road again. I hope.

God bless!

Glad all is well. Have you noticed lately that "service" and
"competence" seem to be a thing of the past?

Glad it went well in spite of the hulabaloo.

So glad everything went well and you are back home again. Luckily we haven't had much experience with hospitals and emergency rooms...knock on wood! We have had our share of insurance battles though...frustrating.

It's good to be home. I'm glad that's over with and you can relax again for a bit. Medical money issues are just the pits!!

I'm so glad that you are back home and the procedure went well. I am always amazed at how much time trips to the doctor/dentist take.
Hugs,

I'm glad you are back home again and that things went well for Lee!!! I know what you mean about the waiting around though doing admissions and all. You'd think they would just have to click a button and all that info would come up on the computer. When I go in they ask me to list my meds before I come in, then when I get there the assistant asks me what meds I am taking,,,,,,,, hummmmmm,,,,,,didn't I do that on the list that I brought in?????? Okay, now I'M whinning but it does seem like a waste of time.

I am glad the procedure went well, and that is the important thing.

It is amazing with such advancement in technology how long simple things can take these days.

Once in college, they kept telling me the computer says you are a senior, so you must be. I kept telling them, no I had a miscarraige dropped out of school and I am a junior!! It took a few days for them to listen to me, and not the computer!! Something about if I was a senior, I would be on probation because my stuff wasn't matching up. Well, that is because I was only a junior:)

Enjoy your family.

Praying for you all,
Trella

I'm so glad Lee is doing well. You both were in my prayers!
I'm sorry about all the delays though...it does sound so frustrating to have to sit through all of that in this day and age!

Have a great visit with your family!

Hi, Myrna,
I just caught up on what's been going on with you and Lee by reading your most recent blogs. I'm so glad the recent hospital visit went well and that Lee's back home and doing well. We leave for Canada in the morning. We'll be in touch when we get back to FL.
We love you both,
Mildred (& Jerry, too)
