It’s Complicated

on August 22, 2011

So my dad is here in Phoenix…10 days earlier than he planned.  If you don’t know my dad he is a homebody and would always rather sleep in his own bed and be home to do his own thing.  I am grateful that he was able and willing to come here and be ‘out of his element’ for much longer than was planned.  My mom is back at home watching our dogs and getting my sister ready and moved in at Pitt.

The real mess with all of this is my insurance.  They will only cover 50% of the costs if I am out of state and they will cover an ER visit but only if it’s life threatening which to them means a heart attack or broken leg (not my example but the insurance lady).  She said delivering a baby would not count and that kidney stones might count as life threatening?!? That means that I need to stay here until I start on Jason’s insurance; incase I would have any more issues.

Well the same day my dad arrived I saw the urologist.  He said I could have more issues with them or none at all and their is not a whole lot they can do for me since I’m pregnant. But either way he scheduled me for another ultrasound to get a better look at what is going on.  I was also able to capture some fragments so those are being analyzed to see if we can get any more information about what kind of stones I have.  They would prefer to do a CT but that’s not really an option for a pregnant person, apparently ultrasounds do not give them the best picture and the size measurements can be off.  He is hoping that the hospital scan is off on the 6mm size because he said that’s on the big side for being able to pass on your own.

Back to the complicated plans…now I am no longer driving with my dad, in fear I go downhill.  My brother Zack is flying out on Saturday the 20th.  On Monday he and my Dad will start the drive back east, the moving truck will get loaded and my Mom will fly out to stay with me in AZ at a hotel.  During the week I have some doctor appointments to get results from the testing.  Then on Friday the 26th my mom and I will fly to Boston.

So here we are waiting for something to happen but hoping that nothing does!
