My husband and I drove over to the imaging place where I had the duplex scan of BOTH legs. I thought it was in May, but it actually was in February, so I probably will have to have another one of those fun tests. I think they are good for only six months. And luckily I kept in that filter that catches blood clots before they reach my heart and lungs. Speaking of lungs, I'll have to get a referral for a pulmonologist, too!!! Aye Carumba! All this stuff, I better be approved for the surgery!!!
When we got back home, my doctor's office called and they said my medical record is ready for pick-up on Monday. Yay! And here the doctor doesn't like giving records out to her patients. But if her office doesn't do the faxing they need to do, then something needs to be done! I'm glad they have the records for ME to transport over to Gilbert for the bariatric surgeon, which we will do on Monday. My next project is getting an authorization number from the insurance for the psychological exam that I will have the end of November. Guess who has to do that? You got it.....my primary care doctor!!! At least I see her in person on November 1st and I can tell her in person how important this surgery is for me and I need that code ASAP.
I'm very overwhelmed, but I know things will get done if I just calm down and relax. I've still got plenty of time in which to get things done. OK, to help me calm down, I'll think back to the times when Mom, Granny and I went to the beach. I've got pictures on top of pictures!! Today I'll show you the ones I took of downtown San Diego.
We actually where in San Diego over my birthday in June, 2002. Best birthday gift, because as you know, I LOVE San Diego!! We went downtown and I just went crazy taking random pictures of places I didn't even know what they were called!!
It sure was pretty downtown, though. We were hoping to go through the gas lamp section, but it wasn't in the cards for us that day to visit there.
Now we were heading towards La Jolla, California. If you've never been there, you have to go there! It's the "Beverly Hills" of San Diego, in my humble opinion. All the posh ocean front homes are here, along with the most expensive shops!! You could be driving around, at anytime, and see people in convertibles with their cell phones to their ears (I thought they out-lawed that practice!) and tops down on their cars. It's quite the experience!!
Here is Mom in front of a La Jolla shop.
Mom and Grandma in front of a shop, BIG dreamers!!! :0)
Back in our territory of Pacific Beach! Here is Grandma, giving me a dirty look because I've taken her picture ONCE again!
Mom and Grandma standing on the shore, watching the waves wash in. We could NEVER go to San Diego and NOT watch the waves at least for a while!!
And last, but not least, my mamma enjoying her lil' stroll among the surf.
We had to cram in everything in two days, then it was back to life in Yuma until our next rheumatologist appointment. I so looked forward to our "Girl's Get-Away" every two months!!
Alrighty, that'll do for this post. Hope you are having a happy Friday. Be sure to join in on the blog hop going on down towards the end of my page. Everyone is welcome and there are give-aways galore. So come try your luck and enter a few. You never know....the next winner could be YOU!
