|Telephone Wires Being Replaced|
Craig, who came out first, in the morning, around 9:00 a.m., to assess the damage, told me I was a sweetheart and, after asking me permission to do so, gave me a hug before he left! LOL. Anthony, who was the last to leave, confided his wife had made him chicken marsala for dinner, when I expressed concern about him working till nearly 9:00 p.m. without dinner. I was still without internet service and TV, when they left, because they hadn't been able to finish splicing the cables and doing their repairs.
In the afternoon, I went to my dental appointment. They took X-rays and the dentist told me all what was wrong with my teeth and what he recommended I did! Unfortunately, hardly any of it is covered under my current dental insurance plan! When I received the estimate for all the recommended treatment, I nearly had a heart attack! I walked out of the dental clinic in a daze!
For now, the dentist prescribed antibiotics for the inflammation and told me, that due to all my medical conditions, I needed to get a medical authorization for treatment from my doctor before he can do anything. I have a form I need to take to my doctor for her to sign. and fax back to him.
Once they receive the signed form, they will schedule another appointment for treatment. I will talk to the dentist and have the necessary immediate treatments done and ask if we can wait for the rest to be done later. I am hoping that I would be able to switch my insurance to a different plan (if available) when open enrollment takes place in October. It won't go into effect until January 2018, but, if they cover at least some of the procedures, then, I'm thinking it'll be worth the wait.
After the dental appointment, I went to the pharmacy to have my prescription filled. Then, came home and spent a quiet evening reading and listening to the radio (I have a favorite oldies station). It reminded me of when I was a teenager, since I didn't have TV or internet, back then, and evenings were spent reading and listening to the same music! Only, back then, the songs weren't considered as oldies, but current pop songs! LOL.
Once again, I couldn't video chat with my daughter, but we texted and phoned. She told me the good news that she'll be able to visit me next weekend for Mother's Day! I wasn't expecting her to come down until end of June, so that was a very pleasant surprise!
On Thursday, I was grateful for:
- At least some insurance coverage!
- Daughter will visit for Mother's Day
- Library books
- Radio stations that play oldies music!
