More Medicaid Follies

Today I was supposed to have an appeal hearing about my problem with Medicaid as to why certain medical bills are not being taken care of.

Beef #1: This the reason I still call MapQuest "the internet's compass-with a broken needle": The directions called for me to take a right on E.13th from Superior to get to the Cleveland office on Payne [Bzzzt!] The office is at the intersection of E.17th and Payne!

Beef#2: My appointment was for 8am, but the offices aren't open before 8, they open at8! Couple that with being there for the first time and not knowing where the room was, I ended up being late anyway and I have to reschedule the hearing for a more convenient day/time.
On more pertinent medical news, since I had that protein spike last week and having another off-week from chemo, the oncologist is having me do "The standing (for us guys) yellow" in a jug for the next 24 hours to not only check fore-mentioned levels, but to get an idea of what my output is during that interval of time.
