Up Close and Personal

All of a sudden, all my future appointments with the Veteran’s Administration are coming due. For those of you who possibly don’t know, I am a transgender vet and I get my health care through the VA. Plus, I am nearly 70 years old.

Let me see now if I can remember everything they (VA) want to do. Sometime next week I need to have my ankle X-rayed and go through a colonoscopy pre screening on the telephone. The people setting up the appointment had no sense of humor when I asked if I could go through the whole thing on the phone. 

Following all of that, the week of Labor Day, I have approximately four appointments. The first of which is a heart sonar test. Then I have three appointments up in Dayton, Ohio. One of which is in hematology blood work checkup and two mental health appointments. 

To add insult to possible injury, I am still waiting to hear from the pulmonary lab who want to schedule another test on my lungs.

Hopefully, after all of this, nothing will be wrong.

But at the least, I am having it checked.
