Wrong Number

After I laid down for a nap earlier, I heard the cellphone in the other room ringing. I only answer it when I'm out somewhere, because the few times it does ring, it's a spam caller. We have given that number to no one important. I looked at the number I "missed" after I woke up, it was from the hospital I get all my treatments at.

They ask for a cell number when I get those dilation procedures, just in CASE mom leaves the hospital during the time I'm having them, and they might need to phone her. I went to the "MyChart" website, apparently they put the cell as our "Primary" number. WRONG. The house phone is our "Primary" number. We only bought the cell in case an emergency crops up when away from the house. 99% of the time, that phone is in a separate room hooked to a charger.

So... while at the website, I deleted the cell number. If it was something important, they will call back on our house phone.

Doctors. Doctors Everywhere!

Got three more doctor appointments before the end of the month. Tomorrow morning, I see my surgery doctor for another "update" visit, no dilation procedure THIS time. Then Tuesday, I have an appointment with my "primary care" doctor at the hospital, who has been treating my high blood pressure. Then a day later, I go back to the dentist who pulled the tooth, so he can see how my healing is progressing. Still having to take a couple Tylenols a couple times a day to deal with the pain I have from the tooth extraction. He said, being a molar tooth, it will probably hurt for some time.

All this is why I've applied for disability. No job that I know of would put up with an employee having to take this much time off to see doctors. Plus, I only know "manual labor" jobs, and since it hurts to lift anything around 30 pounds or more, and have occasional lightheadedness, that would also be a reason.
