I had to email a photo of it for billing purposes at the hospital, so I thought I'd go ahead & share it here too. Just to be a show off. 😜 Women don't show off their accomplishments as much as we should. I would love to see an #accomplishedwomen hashtag blow up with all the amazing stuff we've done.
I spent more than 2 hours signing papers in the hospital yesterday. I wrote my name so many times it started to look funny. I had to fill out applications for billing in 4 or 5 different systems so that no matter what insurance someone has, the hospital can bill that insurance for my services. I did Medicare/Medicaid, Missouri Medicare/Medicaid, Humana, Sharp, Tricare, and I think one or 2 others I can't remember the names of. The Sharp application is a 2-part; they send the first part in and then I have to come back and sign MORE papers. Sharp is the one that wanted this image of my diploma, as well as a copy of my ANCC certificate AND a more detailed version of my CV, with month/year dates on everything I'd ever done: experience and education.
Today at 12:30 we have an actual APPOINTMENT WITH UROLOGY! Bryan has either become a total BAMF and gotten accustomed to the pain of a kidney stone or something has happened, because he hasn't been in excruciating pain for a little more than a week. He's got my least favorite of the urologists, but seriously at this point I don't really even care. I just want to know what these stones are made of so we can alter his diet, put him on medication, or whatever else needs to happen. I also want to know if the 7mm one is still hanging around so we know if we need to do something about that.
You may or may not be a Pokémon Go trainer, but I'm so excited that I gotta say it: I got my first 10K egg! For those who don't play, the game will give you eggs every so often. The eggs each require a certain distance to be walked in-game in order to hatch: some are 2K, some are 5K, and some are 10K. The more distance the egg requires, the cooler the Pokémon that will hatch from it! Everyone I know has had a 10K egg at some point except me! Another thing that has me excited: the Apple Watch is getting a Pokémon Go app! According to yesterday's Apple announcement, they're also going to try for better (read: ANY) integration with the step counter on the phone!! That is TREMENDOUS. Up until then, the distance you cover in-game relies on GPS signal, which has some flaws. GPS paints in broad strokes, not steps. You have to move so many yards for GPS to have registered any movement at all. If you walk a straight line, that's all well and good, but the minute you start adding turns, GPS gets less accurate because it's counting when you move out of a certain radius, not the number of steps you took. Also: GPS doesn't work indoors, so I was just expecting that none of the steps I took at work would count toward my eggs hatching. Step tracking would be a wonderful addition to the game.
