So this week hasn't been exactly all that we had hoped for...but it's definitely been patience building. Don't get me wrong...we have had some really great days with family and friends...but as far as what we had been planning on...we've had to take a sort of "side step."
As mentioned earlier, we have been really looking forward to going to Neuroworx (the physical rehab center we'd chosen), but apparently it's too soon. Monday we made it up to South Jordan for his first visit! Once there, we found out the prescription that we asked his neurosurgeon for a week previous had not been faxed to the center. This meant without that prescription the therapists couldn't even touch Mike. On top of that, we found out we were still not on the right insurance program. I don't know why it frustrated me so much, but it did. We had busted our tails gathering medical records, filling out long applications, and running a ton of errands to get on the right insurance. There was some kind of confusion with the insurance workers...and what we thought he was supposed to be on. Anyway, we rescheduled for Wednesday and thought we got all the kinks worked out...insurance and prescription! But by Wednesday morning there was still no prescription faxed from the doctors office. That afternoon we were informed that we are still on the wrong insurance! The doctor had to run out on an emergency trip and will be back Tuesday...and hopefully then we can get the prescription....and in the mean time we'll be making phone calls and possibly filling out more applications to switch the insurance again (fourth time)! I'm so confused! But I guess in the grand scheme of things a few extra days of waiting really isn't that big of a deal! I'm just impatient! Mike is handling the delays really well...he knows that everything takes longer then anticipated. When we got back in the car after the first rehab cancellation he said "That's OK...I didn't want to walk that soon anyway!" Gosh I love you Mike! Thank you for handeling these "side steps" so well!
