Chaos, Hectic Chaos

The second appraisal came back at the exact dollar amount that we ha offered. Which isn’t exactly what I wanted, but I’ll definitely take it. It makes me happy to know that we are one step closer to being able to buy the house. I’m really hoping that things work out because although this house is slightly small it’s something that I really like and there’s still enough room that we would be able to add on or at least remodel a little without worrying about space issues too much. On top of that the neighborhood appears to be pretty quiet, which I will value unbelievably.

I get all four of my wisdom teeth removed this coming Tuesday and I’m basically petrified of what it’s going to feel like after. I will be under anesthesia during the surgery, but eventually the medication will wear off. I’m hoping that John will be able to help me pick up my prescription before he leaves for work so that I’m not miserable. He has to work on Tuesday night and I’m concerned that I’m going to need help from him and he won’t be there. I’ve never had any form of dental surgery before, so I’m sure I’m overreacting, but still. I’m just beyond grateful that he’ll be able to take me there and drive me home after. I feel bad that he might not be able to eat lunch at Ponderosa, but at least he got to when we had to go for the surgery consultation.

Aside from that I have exactly seven days until I’m done with my second summer class and I cannot wait until everything is finished up. I want to have the extra time to be able to pack and get things around before we go back to school again. I already started buying a few of the supplies that I’m going to need when we go back, especially since I’ve been off work here and there with my wrist since they have found that there is some form of bone lesion that caused the fracture. I don’t even know where to start with that considering the first specialist I was sent to said he didn’t see the fracture or lesion and the only reason he didn’t cast my wrist was because it’s summer and I can’t effectively wash my wrist if it’s casted. On top of being inconsistent he managed to leave my exam three different times to go deal with other patients, and then when his nurse came in to put a different brace on my wrist she had to go through three different boxes until she found a right handed brace, because almost all of their braces were in the wrong boxes… Needless to say my actual doctor instantly referred me to another specialist, but I can’t see him until the 27th. In the mean time I’m on some random steroids, God only knows what they’re supposed to be for.


One Step Forward, Two Steps Back

Somehow I managed to hairline fracture my right wrist and when my doctor was performing an exam on me he accidentally fractured it the rest of the way. I’m supposed to have a CAT scan performed, but because of the holiday weekend pretty much everything is closed tomorrow and they’re going to make me wait until next week. Most of the waiting is just so they can make sure that my insurance will cover the CAT scan cost. Realistically, all I know is that they gave me pain killers that currently aren’t even working. I’m hoping they can do something quickly so that I can get back to work.

In a way this is really bad timing since I really need to work and I have schoolwork at the same time. Whatever happens though it could have always been a lot worse. On top of all that I have a consultation this coming week because I need to have all four of my wisdom teeth extracted. We also finally received the appraisal back on the house and we are actually going to have it redone because it came in about $11,500 less than the offer we placed, and everyone who we’ve asked about it agreed that the appraisal was done incorrectly. I’d rather pay another $455 than trying to come up with the extra $11,500 that would be expected if we accepted the first appraisal.

Aside from all that things have been good. The marketing class is really paying off in the way of grades. It’s not exactly easy but it’s a manageable level of work. I spent my weekend at my aunt and uncle’s because they were having their 10th anniversary party and they needed a lot of help. They ended up needing a bar tender since their bartender got sick right before the party. Other than that things have been the same John and I have just been working and we rarely get to see each other because our schedules conflict. At least the weather and things have been pretty nice the past couple weeks.
