Tom, my trusty chauffer, companion, and moral supporter and I have been making frequent trips to medical facilities, especially to Capitol Hill in the city.
We decided Sunday morning was the best time to have an appointment - very light traffic! This time it was for a brain MRI. We are still trying to figure out what's going on with me. In this case, do I have Normal Pressure Hydrocephalies or not. The report was inconclusive again, but since they forget to do the deeper scan my doctor wanted, I was called back in Tuesday morning. That was a quickie. I await a follow up appointment with one of my docs to evaluate the findings.
But the trip was lovely on Sunday morning. We have been enjoying the fall colors along the I-5 corridor, each time deeper than the time before until on the last trip the leaves have begun to fall.The Mountain was out too.
On Monday Jake went with us for a day trip to Whidbey Island to do some repair work in the cabin garden. They had to replant some things after work was done on the septic system. The guys are all about using natives and low water plants now to save on maintenance and water usage.
I took my laptop so I could work on another medical issue. I had just ordered new hearing aids when I got a letter informing me that insurance coverage was going up after the first of the year, which would save me thousands of dollars. I needed advice and then made notification of cancellation of the 2023 order so I could wait for 2024 to reorder. That meant needing a new hearing test and starting all over, but I was able to get that scheduled and the audiology department is hopefully going to help me set of the follow up appointments on a timely manner instead of having to wait months like I did before.
Today our friend Jan got us another free turkey, one for Christmas, since she spends money but doesn't need a turkey.
We worked outside this morning. It was harder for me, but I like being outside and I want to help as much as I can.
It was nice being at the cabin for a day on Monday. The lagoon was full of ducks and two Great Blue Herons were perched on pilings.
No more appointments now until Monday, and then Tuesday. We get time off for Thanksgiving. :-)
