Not Copying ER Records
I'm really unhappy with Kaiser today. They insisted that I get the ER records and send the records to them so they would pay for the helicopter ambulance. It cost me $60 to get the records, and after the rain stopped yesterday and I got the mail, it turned out that they've paid their share of the helicopter. I owe $10 copay, which I'll pay when the ambulance bills me. At least I don't have the additional $100 for copying and I'm back to having Thursday free, but I'm not happy. I'll save the records, of course.
We continued to have rain, lightning, and thunder at least through 3am when I turned out the light and went to sleep, but I was awake 5-7am. I read, had something to eat, watched some TV, but nothing worked. When I finally got sleepy, I turned the alarm off and slept until 2pm.
I'm changing and washing sheets, as usual on Sunday. When I went out to get the paper, it was really humid. This is one of the reasons Congress (and many restaurants, etc.) recess during August. I wish my car could still have air conditioning!
