Dh seen the Neurologist in June. Dh has MS. So he goes twice a year to monitor his meds and the MS itself. So at each appointment we schedule the next one. So I make the next one for December 26th. Day after Christmas. Figuring I don't work that day. He won't go alone I help dh unload his scooter or a walker so he can get to the appointment. Today I get a letter saying they changed the appointment to 3:15 on December 3rd. That is a Tuesday. I will be working. I can't take off. We need every penny of my pay checks to help with living expenses. I only get like 2 paid personal days a year to use and 2 paid sick days. I was saving them for if I really get sick. Who is to know when I might get the flue or something and need time off. I always schedule appointments on my time off from work. It says if this is not ok. Call some woman back at the listed number. Ok I do that. The woman says Oh so that date is not ok? Yeah. That why didn't someone call first? I was thinking. Don't assume something is ok. You know what that makes. A ass out of you and me. As the expression goes. So we are picking a new appointment time. I said what is the latest time you take appointments. She said 3:15. I said I'll be just getting home from work at that time. That if he could be seen at 4pm. Then that day would be fine. But since not. I need a new time. I took one January 7th. I think I don't work that day. That will be holiday/semester break still. During that time work is by sign up. I guess I will just say I can work all the days but January 7th.
