Ring around the doctor/insurance/doctor/insurance wheel! Not really so much insurance but the doctor thing, HELL YES. Daddy indeed has a MRSA infection in his hip, although they have him on antibiotics and it is looking better, but surgery is again on the horizon for him. Brother took him last Monday to his regular doctor after the dang thing....BLECH...broke. The doctor sent the referral to see Dr. Hippy again and so yesterday Brother picked him up and I met them at Dr. Hippy's office. X'rays and a lot of waiting and surgery is tentatively set for August 12, tentatively. Remember that we had to cancel the hearts tests, well, I had to get on the stick and reschedule them all because he has to be heart cleared before the surgery. HUGE circle we are in. So I got on the phone and rescheduled and they were able to do the echo-cardiogram and the carotid artery sonogram today. So we wait for those results. We also have to reschedule the heart cath test but they problem is we have a week and the heart doctor is out of the office next week!!!!! We may have to bump the surgery back. Oh gosh, what a vicious circle it is.
