Michael’s pediatrician called today and said his PKU (phenylketonurics) test came back a little abnormal, and he wanted us to drive up to Provo and get the test taken again, because apparently they’re very succeptible to errors. The hospital here in Price doesn’t accept my medical insurance, so we pretty much have to go to Provo to get anything done unless it’s an emergency. But my wife decided to call the health department here to see if they could do it, and they said they could, except I had to go to the hospital here and buy a test kit from them for $37. It was better than spending $25 on gas and wasting 4 or 5 hours of my time, so we went ahead and did it here. Poor Michael has so many scabs on his heels from being pricked to draw blood, and now he has two more. But hopefully the results of the test will turn out ok, and even if not, it’s something that’s easily corrected permanently with a special diet for a short period of time.
I heard back from my homeowner’s insurance company yesterday, and they said they can’t cover the damages to my basement because the sewer back-up occurred off my property. So I’m writing a letter to the mayor, basically trying to bully him into settling this without involving the courts, but I’m only giving him 3 or 4 days to settle it, then I’ll file a civil suit against Price City for not only the damages, but attorney fees, lost wages, and possibly emotional damages (hey, I’m going for the balls this time).
I’ve downloaded a lot of good mp3s lately. In the past two days, I’ve gotten some Doobie Brothers, Kiss, Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, and Ratt. I’m glad I decided it was worth my time to download music even on a very slow connection, but I’m running out of ideas of which bands to look for. Anybody have some ideas?
