In an attempt to take charge of my own health care opted not to call “Judy” back and instead called hospital one, and left a message for their scheduling department. Then I called hospital two and spoke with the person in charge of scheduling, who had nothing available until next week, but said that if I was willing to come in without notice she would personally call me if there was a cancellation. That sounded great so I agreed. Then hospital on returned my call, and low and behold they were able to fit me in at 11:30. Yea! As I was getting ready the nice lady from hospital two called back with a cancellation at 12:30. Since hospital two is within walking distance and the weather wasn’t good that was defiantly my first choice, so I told her that I would be in. I called hospital one and left a message thanking her profusely for fitting me in on such short notice and explained that I was on the cancellation list at hospital two which was so much closer to home so unfortunately I needed to cancel. Another phone call from the nice lady at hospital two explaining that she was unable to get the order from “Judy” as it seemed I had an appointment with hospital one at 11:30. I quickly explained that everything had happened very quickly but I was defiantly planning to keep my appointment with her. When I arrived at 12:30 nice lady informed me that she still didn’t have the order. I told her that must be because “Judy” didn’t like me much. I can’t understand why. Geesh.
I was happy that school was canceled today. I only wish I had some way to learn of the cancellations prior to sending my children out to wait for the bus in the rain! I swear, I was watching all three major stations, and nothing was reported for our town until 8. The only reason I kept watching until 8 was the total disbelief that every other town had been cancelled except for ours. Even our neighbor, who happens to be a police officer in town, was out waiting with his kids. Up until 8:15 it had only been reported on one station. I must find an early warning system. Preferably one that doesn’t involve getting out of bed!
