United Healthcare

For those who've been following the neverending story that is the United Healthcare saga I am pleased to report what I hope is the end:  they paid.

I started getting shots again Tuesday, and fortunately didn't have to start over again.  Instead we started at the lowest dose on my current vial.  So far so good; here's hoping I'm on maintenance dose by December.

There's not much else to report right now.  I weigh the same as I have (upper-mid 130's), I eat the same, I exercise (although I managed to do something to my hips last Sunday that I'm still not over because I refuse to recognize that my body is ridiculously injury-prone), I work.

The boys are doing well.  The Gum Zombie continues with his parkour madness and is entering 5th grade in a week.  The Elder is surgically attached to his computer and starts at the IB high school as a freshman in that same week's time.  I am absolutely verklempt, and although I am more than aware of my age I just don't feel old enough to have a child in high school.

The animals continue to thrive.  We haven't added any new members to the family since Charlie, thank goodness.  I think I'm at my upper limit with all the fauna in the home.

Choreboy remains the love of my life :)

I think at this point it would be appropriate to say I'm taking a bit of a hiatus from this blog.  I'm not going private, and I'm not saying I'll never be back because lord knows I have trouble shutting up.  But I've been at this thing for seven years.  I'm tired, and I think it's time to give this a rest at least for a bit.

If you want to contact me, please feel free to leave a comment or email me -- my address is in the sidebar beneath the "Cast of Characters"  And oh what characters they are!  I should be updating the herpetological blog here and there if you absolutely can't live without my writing.  I'm not holding my breath on that ;) In the meantime:


That's really all that matters.  Take care, folks.

Yes! I'm not sure what did it, but 3 physician appeals, 1 patient appeal, and 1 report to the Florida Department of Financial Services later, and somehow they were able to see their way clear to pay it, LOL

I'm personally crediting the report to the state combined with the doctor's final appeal, which they then had no choice but to properly file and review. Teamwork rocks :D
