Medical Fun and Games…..

After calling and calling the VA at Sepulveda about my CT Scan that I had on May 8th, the neurology called back and wants me to make an appointment…….

I can’t fathom why they just won’t send me the information. But after all the bullshit, I guess this is a step in the right direction. I still have to find out if my regular doctor who is my primary provider under the Veteran’s Choice Program has the results as well. After work this morning, it’s phone tag part whatever as I quit counting.

The colonoscopy is to be done on Friday the 28th, two days from now. I won’t get a check in time until I talk to the nurse on Thursday. I told this clinic that I need to know ASAP on Thursday so I can get some sleep before the preparation begins……….I think I actually got through.

It has been an aggravating and stressful three months…….

To all of my friends and followers on Facebook, I humbly apologize for the hasty departure. I may fire it up again but in a more compact manner with Neptunus Lex first and foremost.

I haven’t been the most pleasant person to be around. Maybe Missus ORPO and I should split for the Central Coast for a long weekend just to get a change of scenery.

I will be purchasing the upgrade here at WordPress to keep the blog going for quite some time I hope……….

 

Still Here

Fear not, dear readers! I haven’t gone anywhere. It has just been one of those weeks.

I am still adjusting to the graveyard shift hours, specifically the four ten hour ones I am currently working. Add in a wicked head and upper chest cold from Hades…………and the three foot and lower leg issues. The amiltriptyline is handling the neuropathy fairly well but the capsulitis and plantar faciitis are not a lot fun. It hurts like hell when I get up out of the rack and do something simple, like walking to the bathroom.

I should be back in harness fairly soon with some rather unique beer posts to start.

The Los Angeles County Air Show will be happening at Fox Field in Lancaster in March. I think I will attend and pay the rather stiff admission so the Nikon will get a work out. The Blue Angels Number 7 was in town this past week to let the Antelope and Fremont Valleys know they will be the headliners.
