I check the county website daily to see where they are on vaccinating folks. I do hope they get an appointment program up and running soon.
The immunization program is going pretty badly, but at least it's happening.
Gotta go check the pool.

Well, I took the cowardly way out, and emailed Cruella about my situation. This way, I was able to cover the timeline and details of how Kelly contacted COVID, and what I have been doing to prevent getting the virus, and my plan to get tested on Friday. The Dr. took it better than I expected...He sent an email, telling me to get tested tomorrow and Friday. He said he will pay me for the week :eek: :dance:, and to stay well.

I do not understand why some people, have excuses for getting the test...cost too much, couldn't find a place that does it, takes days to get an appointment, my insurance won't pay for it, etc..... I did a google search, picked the first place I found, and made an appointment for a 20 minute test tomorrow morning. It is at a lab near my work. The schedule was wide open. Their website stated it is illegal for any place to charge for the test. They have to accept whatever insurance pays as full payment, and they have to accept out of network insurances...even if they do not receive payment. It is under the Families First Coronavirus Response Act. I made a point to let Kelly know, since she and Aaron made excuses about getting tested in a timely manner.

Anyway, I have developed a persistent dry cough. I wouldn't doubt if I am positive. I feel fine otherwise, and I do not have a fever or other symptoms. I'm pretty confident if I do have it, it will be a mild case. I had all of the severe symptoms a year ago. The persistent dry cough came after being bed ridden and praying for death for a few days. As for Kelly, she is a little better today.

Same reason that people don't go to the doctor in general-- they're afraid of the results.
Their website stated it is illegal for any place to charge for the test. They have to accept whatever insurance pays as full payment, and they have to accept out of network insurances...even if they do not receive payment. It is under the Families First Coronavirus Response Act.
That's weird, because I have never heard that. The requirements of that act are on payors, not providers, and it only applies to medically necessary testing, so people have to pay for testing all the time.
Anyway, I have developed a persistent dry cough. I wouldn't doubt if I am positive. I feel fine otherwise, and I do not have a fever or other symptoms. I'm pretty confident if I do have it, it will be a mild case.
Most cases are mild, so hopefully that's how it will be.
I had all of the severe symptoms a year ago. The persistent dry cough came after being bed ridden and praying for death for a few days.
I'm glad that prayer wasn't answered. :hug:

we are wondering if she should be though we are allotted a certain amount of time to spend with her and it takes longer nearly every time we visit - which is 2 carers 4 times a day. for example our 45 minute slot took over an hour and our 30minute slot took an hour....and thats just yesterday. her care seems to take longer than we are allowed and she really needs constant supervision - she is likley to try to DIY and have an accident.
still nippy - so candle is on - wine for pre-early-lunch drink and on/off computer on/off cleaning going on......

It is somewhat similar to oatmeal, except the bits are ground smaller than grits, so it comes out as a smooth creamy texture, almost a paste. (Probably what most people either love or hate about it.) I think it is sometimes called creamy wheat farina, though there is a chunkier version of farina that is very different. When I was a kid, we got a brand of cream of wheat that called it "bear mush"! :D

Also, if any leftovers get cold, it turns completely solid, like solid polenta, and you could slice it up and fry it! (Though I don't know if many people do that! :lol: )

Good morning!

After my test, I plan to clean the house, and go for a walk. Kelly is still sick, but looks a lot better. She said she forced herself to drink tons of water, yesterday. I guess telling her she needs an IV for dehydration worked.

RJ, here is the statement on the labs website...COVID-19 RAPID TEST COST
Submit your insurance info online before your appointment. After your COVID-19 test(s), you may receive an Explanation of Benefits letter (EOB) from your insurance company – this does NOT mean you owe a balance to GS Labs for your COVID-19 test(s). Your insurance company’s payment will be treated as payment in full by GS Labs, based on current regulations under the CARES Act and FFCRA. You are not responsible for paying any outstanding balance. If you provided us with insurance information when you registered for your appointment, you won’t pay anything out-of-pocket.
.

The link to there website is https://gslabstesting.com/covid-19-testing-information/

Maybe it is due to some of the answers I gave on their questionnaire? Dry cough, and exposed to someone with laboratory confirmed covid-19?

Good afternoon. :hello:

House sitting. RJ, when I check the pool, I check the water level. If it falls below a certain point, I have to add water. Steve always leaves the hose and stuff set up so I don't have to worry about that.

It's a beautiful day. I think I'll take my crocheting and book and sit out on the lanai.

I have a grocery delivery tomorrow morning and Wednesday I need to go for blood work. I have a Dr appt next week, and thank goodness I put it in my calendar last July when I made the appointment, because I can't find where it was written down. :blush:

Hope you all have a nice day. :thumbsup:

That's interesting. It's definitely a valid reason to get tested, but as far as I know the legislation requires the insurance company to swallow the cost, not the providers. Of course, they might be just trying to look good by saying they'll waive a cost they won't have. The "If you gave your insurance info" part might be a loophole, too-- they might not accept insurance for anything they feel is administrative or convenience.

creamy wheat farina
sounds like what we call semolina...i used to cook that up for my son when he was young - but i tend to lower my wheat consumption these days and not eat much cereal at al.l
Presumably the schedulers know this. Are they likely to schedule more time for her, or are they limited in what they can do?
we dont actually have schedulaers... we HAD an office manager, we got an office junior and the office manager too a 5 week sickie...the office is currently run by the boss who doesnt listen to anyone and expets us to fit the client into the time slot given, th area manager who tries to please the boss but does listen to us - sometimes, and the office junior who has no idea what shes doing and tries to pease the boss and doesnt know thing about the cients needs, the driving time, the whole thing but tries her best...

i wont be cleaning for \J til the latest lockdown ends as she needs to isolate as best she can. her husband is staying hom more ad she is only having 2 visits from carers instead of three a day....but no cleaner viit .

so i have another free day and may trot to the famr store. yesterday i popped to the plot breifly.

Quiet day. Read some of the continuing saga of the insanity caused by the idiot in office, decided not to read too much so I could sleep tonight. Yet, here I am, 1am, wide awake. :lol: I'm probably awake because I have to go to the lawyer's today, sign some more papers. I thought I signed everything two months ago! And with all the delays this lawyer caused, he had the nerve to note in his letter, that he really wants this to be over. I plan on reading everything he hands me to sign, not feeling any trust with this guy.

Well, I took the cowardly way out, and emailed Cruella about my situation.
Cowardly, or safest way? ;)

I do not understand why some people, have excuses for getting the test...cost too much, couldn't find a place that does it, takes days to get an appointment, my insurance won't pay for it, etc.....
We have a testing site 25 miles away, but it's only open about 4 hours at a time, and the days of the week keep changing. Luckily we have become hermits and constantly disinfecting everything. :yes: So far, no exposure that we are aware of, so I don't have to worry about figuring the place out. :lol:

Anyway, I have developed a persistent dry cough. I wouldn't doubt if I am positive. I feel fine otherwise, and I do not have a fever or other symptoms. I'm pretty confident if I do have it, it will be a mild case. I had all of the severe symptoms a year ago. The persistent dry cough came after being bed ridden and praying for death for a few days. As for Kelly, she is a little better today.
Hopefully it's just a cold.

Good morning, everyone. :hello:

Hopefully today will be somewhat less psychotic than yesterday.

Since I like oatmeal, I'm very much in favor of eating cream-colored paste in the morning :lol: I'll give Cream of Wheat a try, assuming they make a microwavable version that can be cooked in 1 minute like my oatmeal.
I don't know about that. Mine comes in little packets. I'll have to check next time I go to the store.
I'm glad I'm not the only one who is clueless about what a lanai is. Could it be a screened porch?
That would be good. I love screened porches, screenhouses, and gazebos and stuff.
Wow, a map of America that's all red. The Donald will take that as a show of support. :lol:

we dont actually have schedulaers... we HAD an office manager, we got an office junior and the office manager too a 5 week sickie...the office is currently run by the boss who doesnt listen to anyone and expets us to fit the client into the time slot given, th area manager who tries to please the boss but does listen to us - sometimes, and the office junior who has no idea what shes doing and tries to pease the boss and doesnt know thing about the cients needs, the driving time, the whole thing but tries her best...
Total chaos, and the patients pay the price.

Read some of the continuing saga of the insanity caused by the idiot in office, decided not to read too much so I could sleep tonight. Yet, here I am, 1am, wide awake. :lol:
I suspect a lot of people are losing sleep.
I thought I signed everything two months ago!
There are always more papers to sign.

Whew! Common ground.

What are they doing with vaccines in your area?

Happy Chewsday, all :hello:

Today I'm prepping for Fall classes plus two Zoom meetings about the encyclopedia and another writing project.

People are beginning to be concerned here about the FBI warning that all 50 US state capitols may attract armed protests starting this weekend. We live six miles from the capitol building so we'll be safe. But it's still disconcerting.

Well now you've introduced grits into the Cream of Wheat vs Oatmeal debate. Being a southerner, my wife LOVES grits, which is cream of corn, basically. And she loves adding poached egg with her grits.

I'm glad they have you to make situations less psychotic.... or at least psychotic in a different way :lol:

I've been following that map since last spring. It's never been all red before. Until November, it was mostly yellow and orange with some red splotches here and there.
