Driving up to Phoenix to the hospital four days out of five is no one's idea of a good time, but that's my schedule this week.
I'm having my Thyrogen trial after being on the LID for two weeks already, so it was blood work and injection today, injection tomorrow, RAI on Wednesday, and more blood work and a WBS on Friday.
I jealously hoard my PTO, though, so all my appointments are after school, which means I'm dashing out the door as soon as the last bell rings and then driving back home in rush hour.
The kids still have to get to & from school, so DS1 is on that this week. DH is doing without a car at all so that can happen, which means I drop him off in the morning and pick him up on the way back from the hospital.
It's too much driving. Then there's my formal observation on Wednesday and parent-teacher conferences on Thursday (8AM-6PM), plus my Tuesday & Thursday classes (which I love, but - work!)
Just hoping my scan is clean -- then I won't have to think about this for another month, when my bloodwork will finally come back.
I won't say how much this is costing us, mostly because the insurance company thinks we're still on last year's plan, even though we switched at the beginning of July, which is, you know, nearly three months ago. DH says they'll figure it out eventually. He is an optimist.
