Fax U

>> Friday, July 9, 2010

Why can't it be easy to get medical records? I must qualify, when I went to Henry Mayo Hospital in Santa Clarita and asked for Bug's records they smiled, and said: Have a seat. And 35 minutes later I had a CD with EVERYTHING on it. Wow.

So I did the same thing to UCLA and to EVERY Neurologist he has had and I got: K, we will copy them, for 40 bucks, and you'll have them in 6 to 8 weeks. That's confusing, I didn't think I was ordering the Fushigi. Huh.

And I am back at it again. No matter really since I need them anyway, but OMG, why does it have to be such a PITA?

We are attempting to get an appointment at the Barrow Neurological Institute in Arizona and they need his records FIRST. So, I am getting them and then I am getting him an appointment. But first I have to either download, or be emailed the records release form. THIS is where it's a PITA...the form is NOT easy to find online and when I left a message two hours ago to have it emailed...well let's just say I used my search engine prowess and found it myself. Thanks for the...ya. So I have to fill it out, fax it to the PCMC and then they will fax it to The Barrow. Mmm...K. That's a bit of faxing.

He is refusing to eat and just looks different. He wouldn't go to sleep last night, at least not easily, so maybe he is tired. Only 7 hours of sleep is unusual for him now. I feel like we are back in the days of Bug at 4 years old. I hope not.

Our previous dr tried to make us pay $25 for each record. How ridiculous is that??? My niece was his nurse and got them for me. ;p
I'm sorry you're having such a hard time with this. ((HUGS))

Thanks Holly..I will get them ...OH I WILL! AND I have to go to UofU today so maybe I will stop by the records department and hand deliver it! Can't ignore that, can they?
