Greetings from Utah Valley Imaging

Originally uploaded by Fat Cyclist.

You know, you can get good at anything if you practice a lot. This is
true even of scheduling doctor appointments and tests. And that’s why
even though Susan was scheduled to see a vascular specialist on August
15, I got her in to see him yesterday. And that’s why Susan’s getting
a bunch of MRIs right now instead of a week from now.

I’ve learned to navigate the medical beauracracy.


With any luck we’ll soon have a plan fir how to help Susan overcome
the increasing numbness and immobility in her legs.

    I congratulate you on your cat-like maneuvering through the labyrinth that is the modern health care system.
    Here’s hoping for good news!

    From the picture of Utah Valley Imaging in it’s strip-mall-ish setting I thought maybe you were getting custom printed T-shirts.

    Nice moves on the appointment. Navigating bureaucracy is a life skill that it’d be nice not to need so often but is usually very very useful. Hope the scans prove useful. Best wishes to you and Susan.

    Now there is something that you could write a best seller on. “How to navigate the Medical Bureaucracy”. Seriously! When we were first married my wife got Hodgekins. I didn’t know what to do or how to react. Luckily Hodgekins in relatively easily cured because I didn’t have a clue about how to shuffle through the bureaucracy. It was all I could do to keep the insurance and hospital bills correlated. Hang in there Elden! WIN SUSAN!
