Another PET scan tomorrow, with the results given to me by Dr. Dax next Monday. I’m not sure what to expect. There’s no pain associated with the lymph nodes so I can’t “feel” what the cancer may or may not be doing, at least at this stage.
What I am aware of is the mounting pile of medical bills. The insurance company of the lady who hit me has not responded to the claim letter sent last May, so I’ve had my attorney notify them that we will file suit to get payment.
Insurance is a two-sided game. When you are a client paying the premiums companies go out of their way to meet your every need. But if you become a claimant, things slow down and the relationship can become adversarial. Litigation sometimes becomes necessary, not to get an inordinate sum but just to collect the face value of the policy to cover expenses.
I’m not looking forward to the protracted process, and in the mean time I have to pay all the medical expenses out of pocket. And my pockets have never been very deep.
