Did you manage to get your test results?


Were they clear, or are you going to have to more tests??

No not yet, they said they'd call when they weren't so busy, so far nothing, if they haven't called in 75 minutes I'll call them again.

I think I'd be "camped on the doctor's lawn" until I got to see him.


(In the past I've found reception the hardest obstacle to overcome, and they don't like having their nice tidy reception area cluttered up with people waiting to see a doctor...)

I'm about out of minutes on the Virgin Mobile Paylo plan and that's another 16 minutes out of 400 for $20(384 minutes argon, phone is now off, for emergencies only now), after that no phone service until the 1st. Otherwise I'd have to drive 12 miles just to find out what's going on. Right now I'm coughing up phlegm and blowing My nose so that I can breathe again.

Get a Magic Jack so you'll have a landline in the house. $20 to buy the one that plugs into a computer or $40 for the stand alone, and $20 a year for service. Works great as long as you have internet.

Right now I'm coughing up phlegm and blowing My nose so that I can breathe again.

I know the feeling. Ugh. You may not believe me, but my breathing really has gotten better as I've lost weight. And I'm not exercising for the weight loss, just eating a *little bit* healthier. Nothing major, just a single cheeseburger instead of a double, skip the fries most of the time, etc.

Can't get Magic Jack right now(No DSL), I'm not loaded, $866.40 only goes so far, in any case even if I plugged it in there is no connection, the phone line was last used as dry loop, which is now disconnected, I'm trying to keep costs down and right now is just not the right time. I'm on TWC cable.

I can breathe again, I just had to blow My nose and cough some, yesterday it started to flow. I'm having eggs and sausage and coffee.

They only jump in when you open the door.

Have you been in contact with the doctor to see if your results are in?
If so have you found out what they mean?

If you haven't then got in contact with them, and find out.

Get yourself to the doctors, we are getting fed up with your excuses. All your symptoms can be attributed to an infection resulting from an anal bleed, the whole lot, so for your own sake, and Grace's sake get down there and find out what's wrong with you. Every day you delay could be making matters worse, and I'd hate to hear that you had been found unconscious (or worse) on the floor of your home, having been lying there for several days.

Which only happened once recently and once before, I just called, they do not have any results in, now I have less than 14 minutes on My phone.

Why do people think I'm loaded????

Loaded with excuses - yes
Loaded with cash - no

Not in yet - "Oh ****t" is all I can say about that, after we are now well past the "two days" you were told at the end of last week. I think I'd be dancing on someone's head about that delay.

In all honesty rob its not our decision.
You all gave good advice.
Nothing more that you can do.

Sorry my logic part is talking to me.

Sadly I think Vic has been dealt a rough hand by the medics - At the end of last week it was "results in two days", and now its how many more days before they get him the results - and he had to chase them down to get that bit of none-news...

Ok I do have something to report, I'm going to the Doctor to discuss the tests I had done as they won't discuss this on the phone, this has to do with patient privacy. It seems while the phone was off the test results came in, wonderful timing.

Also I'm going to the dentist soon. I found out that Denti-Cal will allow a tooth to be pulled(extracted), but not filled, nor are dentures covered anymore, those two would have to come out of My pocket, I fired off an email to Governor Brown on that, don't know if He'll see that or not, but it was worth a shot.

I've got one Dentist picked out too, Fridays and Mondays are busy days, that's why I said Tuesday. One in the Stater Bros Plaza ought to do, at least I know where the place is at. The Dentist has an appointment open at 2pm, so it's Tuesday at 2pm. I may have to see the Doc on Wednesday.

Oh and something been going around that has flu like symptoms, no wonder I felt like I was half dead, I probably gave it to the manager or maybe not, that's hard to tell.

Thanks Julie, Yeah I hope so too, but like I said a lot of people here in the park are sick or have been sick, right now the manager is sick and so was some kid, but this is a family park.

It's that annoying time of year now isn't it? Soon be Spring though Vic. That brief period that you will be able to enjoy the sunshine, before it becomes searing desert heat!
