Daughter calls home, she's sick. Goes to the emergency room, where she gets a CAT scan and Xray. They tell her that she needs surgery. Bring her home a week early, wait two days to see the surgeon. Who then says I can't read this CAT scan, she needs another. But I see on this report that she has a different problem that's going to need surgical intervention, too. They want to do the CAT next Monday, after the insurance people say OK. The daughter says Its okay if insurance won't cover an immediate one, we'll pay for it. CAT gets scheduled for today. But she still has to wait a week to see the surgeon again. He's booked in surgery Monday and Tuesday, he'll be coming in on Wednesday just to see you. Which helps her mood not at all.
And now she's cranky, nervous, and bored.
