Paul had his Tuesday appointment with Jaclyn this afternoon. She also gave him a miniscule amount of liquid to swallow and he still couldn't. She is suddenly concerned that his problem may be esophageal. She is planning a swallow study on Thursday after is noon appointment. If it confirms some type of esophageal stricture she said he would be scheduled to have his esophagus dilated asap.
Our insurance nightmare has begun. Johns Hopkins Home Care has not been able to find us a company to transition the once a week nurse. She comes to change Paul's Picc line dressing and check on his well being. They also need to supply us with hydration supplies but that has yet to happen either. Since JHHC could not get the transition completed this week they are sending our nurse over as a courtesy. We will miss them so much!!
This is only one of many other doctors and procedures that need to be switched over. It is stressing me out. The worse part is that we don't have the correct insurance book (one is suppose to be on its way in the mail since last thursday) for the plan we signed up for. When I call the 800 number it all depends on who you get. But no one has yet to give me any kind of detailed information about the flexible choice plan. I will have to sit and check out the website and hope I can find information there!! I just don't have that kind of time....ughhh.
Anyhow, on a brighter note, my parents are on their way home to Florida from their stay in Vernor, Ontario this summer. They will be arriving for a short visit this weekend. We haven't been able to go down to florida to visit since Paul's illness so this will be a very welcomed stay!! The weather is suppose to be beautiful. This will make it even better :-)
