Both of our genetic tests came back clean, as we suspected they would. Now we’re just bracing for the two $1,000ish bills that insurance probably will refuse to pay. Who needs a savings account, anyway? Certainly not people trying to have a baby!
So I guess we’ll go back to trying. It’s probably a little late this month, but hey practice makes perfect, right? I’m sure Tim would make that argument.
Beyond that, not much to report. It’ll get up to 111 by 4 p.m. But it’ll feel like 108 so… score! I may start consider the Safeway offer of a free first delivery, like Kat suggested.
Next week, Tim’s going in for an evaluation for his ADD to see if he can get medication. We’ll be out there (it’s in Mesa) for several hours, since the evaluation takes 2-3 by itself, and then it’ll be two hours until the psychiatrist can see him. At least they’re thorough.
Meanwhile, I have an appointment with a rheumatologist the next week. Maybe that guy will be able to actually prescribe something for my chronic fatigue. But I’m nervous about getting my hopes up at this point.
And finally we got an appointment for Tim to see a dentist. My hairdresser at the beauty school worked for a few dentists, apparently. She said this was the only guy she completely trusted to not sell unnecessary services and such. Plus he offers a discount for those who don’t have insurance and he brings in an oral surgeon for this sort of thing. Sold!
So we’ll get an idea of what kind of cost we’re looking at and how urgent it is, exactly. Worst case scenario, we take out a loan. I know there are companies that deal specifically with loans for dental care, but we’d also check out a few banks.
I guess the point of all this is that we’re kinda sorta getting our house in order.Including some cleaning, since we’re trapped inside anyway. Unfortunately, we do have to leave the house to mail Netflix DVDs and the mortgage payment.
I guess some things are unavoidable, like death, taxes and sweating to death in a car in the AZ sun.
