This has been a great week for me. Most of my followers know the past few weeks have been rough. I’d been waiting for news regarding Speech Therapy and Medicare. My Rehabilitation doctor deemed the Speech Therapy medically necessary, so Medicare will extend my treatment.
For those who aren’t aware, Speech and Physical Therapies are COMBINED per Medicare regulations. Since I’ve had zero Speech this year, I’m eligible. I had my first evaluation on APRIL 22 with a facility because their specialty is Speech only. After I waited six weeks for that evaluation, I find out that I’m on a standby patient only, meaning I can only get in if someone cancels an appointment. They called me one time and by the time I called back, the slot was filled. My doc wasn’t happy when I went to see him on Monday, JUNE 1.
So here’s what I’m celebrating:
- My Rehabilitation doctor referred me to the original outpatient rehab organization I previously went to. It’s a different office, but still closer to my house than the original place he sent me.
- He referred me on Monday and I already had my initial evaluation TODAY! Even better? I have the same Speech Therapist I had when I first came out of inpatient rehab. She even remembers me. ** Blushing **
- I did a little bit of spring cleaning around the house this past week (mostly paper shredding), but what a difference it made.
- Going to see Melissa Etheridge live in concert on the 13th in Mount Pocono. So stoked!
Best of all, I’m still ON THE RIGHT SIDE OF THE GRASS and blessed with some very special people in my life.
What have you celebrated this week?
