Well, it is after 6p and the pharmacy is closed. So, apparently, the Thursday in question is MAY 15TH!
I called the doctor’s office and the receptionist put me through to the doctor who said, “Is this Miss Emmett?” I said, “Yes.” “Please hold” (How much you wanna bet he charges the insurance company for that?) Anyway, his NURSE…and I emphasize that as Debbie is an office manager who hates me…, Susie, says, “Hi, Miss Emmett. We have you scheduled for May 15th, that is a Thursday.” “I thought it was this Thursday.” “Oh, no, there aren’t any openings until May, but we will have you in and out and you will be enjoying your birthday on the 18th. Now, we will send you a Prep package in the mail and it will tell you everything you have to do the day before. And there will be a consent form for you to sign and mail back.” I said “fine” and then added, “I caun’t do an enema.” Susie said, “Oh, my, we don’t do that! Not really good for you. It is just something for you to drink and keep a liquid diet. We realize there is a leak, but it is very slow and you should be fine until then. If it isn’t in these two places, then someone else will have to start searching. But we are hopeful we will find it and fix it.”
I called Debbie. She was furious! She said she would talk to the doctor and make SURE it was THIS Thursday. I waited about an hour and then thought about the fact that I am almost all out of food (went to the store last month) and money to pay for it (more money for my driver). So, I called Debbie and said I wanted the May 15th one. She was unhappy but said, “If that is what you want, but I still think it is wrong. I will still talk to the doctor about it and if I call back, you will be going on this Thursday.” I said, “Okay.”
Well, too late now, Debbie! So, I have made out my grocery list and am going to the store tomorrow morning on the Senior bus, if all goes well.
