Welcome To The Bitchery

Welp.

Finally on my way back home after twelve days or so visiting my dad and trying to get all his stuff in order. The first week was absolutely insane. I won’t go in to details because I would doxx myself if I did, but there were several things I had to remedy immediately. We visited both of his main doctors and everyone should all be on the same page now. Found out he didn’t have Medicare Part D for prescriptions. Found it out the hard way, in fact, when the pharmacy called to say his newly prescribed Alzheimer’s medication would cost over $400 for the month. Damn near had a panic attack over that, but we went to see his primary care doctor the next day at the local non-profit clinic and he prescribed us the generic and gave us the clinic’s discount card which came out to less than $20 for the month. Hallelujah. Just when I thought we had all the loose ends tied up we discovered some financial fraud, and so I figured I’d better stay a few more days to sort that all out. So I did. Thankfully, nearly every single person we interacted with was compassionate, kind, sympathetic, and beyond helpful. Almost every single person we interacted with on a professional level went above and beyond in helping us get things straightened out. I have over a dozen thank you notes/letters to write.

I’m about to land for a layover and I will be heading straight for the airport spa. I slept on a greyhound bus last night and had been sleeping on my dad’s couch before that, I’ve earned a massage.
