We went to Durham last night and were in the VA hospital first think this morning. The Evaluation was positive for both ears, Then we had to talk to the surgeon and get vitals READ, and his personal short physical. That went well, the only problem we ran into was: he said WE needed to schedule an MRI and a C-Scan. (And we didn’t know DOODLE about those, where or how.)
We were sent a long way to Radiology. At Radiology a crotchety old man 150 yrs old told Sherry, basically toughstuff. You need to call xxxx and xyyxx numbers and talk to someone.
Back down to the first place and the guy called one number and gave Sherry the phone. They were booked but ‘my girl’ asked please and he gave her a schedule forafter working hours, 5:30 PM. No luck at the C-Scan #.
SO Back to the Crotchety old man. He was gone and a young girl tried and said the supervisor would be out to talk to us. NADA after a couple hours. Crotchety old man comes back from break and Sherry asked him to call the super and ask. WE waited. Then MY GIRL asked again. Crotchety old man dials and leaves a message Sherry can hear. WE set down and wait.
In the mean time we decided if they did the C-Scans on Saturday, we would get a motel. Sherry sceduled That, it was now 3:00 PM and 5:30 was fast approaching. 3:30 Crotchety old man says Super will try to work me in.
At about 4:20 I was called, and got the Cat Scan.
Then down to find MRI, the hospital is closing down and the halls are empty. Finally a lady was spotted and MY GIRL chased her down and asked. We found MRI.
30 minutes! YEP I better. Then in the tube. I went to sleep. YOU ain’t supposed to move!
I woke up and wondered DID WE GET A MOTEL (I thought). I am undressed and laying down. Then I realized if was MRI’ing. MR. MRI said I did not move so all went well. It was all done in one day, because MY GIRL persevered.(saving us 6hrs drive or a day and the cost of a motel) I LOVE THIS GIRL.
September 9th, is the implant. Then four weeks to heal before Doctor Jennifer turns it on.
WE be tired, but happy.
The 1957 Some folk say the best of design…
Sort of a shame, the mighty Packard shows up in 1957 as a modified Studebaker.
Two ‘57 beauties the Chevy and the port hole Thunderbird.
