This afternoon I had a visit with Dr. Harper to discuss the results of my CT scan. He said that the CT scan did not reveal anything wrong with my vertebrae, the fusion or the rods. We discussed other possible alternatives. He ordered a bone scan – not the usual bone density scan – to see whether it will reveal a problem that the CT scan and X-rays have not shown. This probably means another fight with Humana. I think I feel a scream coming on.
I said in jest that maybe he should just take me out to the back pasture and let the vultures get me. He said he didn’t want to do that because it would require too much paperwork. :>)
It took me an hour and a half to get home because of the traffic. This is the first night of the annual Austin City Limits Fest in Zilker Park. ACL will be held all this week end and next week end. Most of our street is closed, so we have few options for getting in and out of our own neighborhood. I wish they would find another venue for the festival.
