Had a good trip to the doctor. Dr. Clark is a sweet, compassionate young man. He could see the pain I was in.
X-rays showed that my bones are okay. So he believes that I tore a meniscus. So he ordered a MRI. Meanwhile, very gently he froze my skin, injected anesthesia into my knee and drew out fluid and injected me with cortisone. I have the huge hole in my knee to prove it. Today I am almost pain free! So now what am I gonna do? Like the picture says, being crabby is part of my charm.
Well that shoe dropped, the hospital wants $579.00 up front before they will do the MRI. That's with my insurance too!
I told them to cancel the appointment, I don't have it. Let's see $12.00 in my checking and $45.00 in my savings, and 6 more gallons of gas to get me through the week to work and back. Nope it ain't gonna happen. So......
And I'm grateful that I have children who help me. My son Aaron paid for my doctor trip. Bless him, I know he has his own problems.
