...and this is Friday

Up for no good reason at 0600; couldn't get back to sleep, so I got up and did the breakfast thing. Blood sugar was very good, down to 144. You'd think I'd had a full night's sleep or something. Also, the legs are continuing to heal up nicely. At this rate I may be able to hit the pool soon, which would be a Good Thing.

I guess today I'll go out and get the paperwork started to transfer my medical records from Kaiser to the VA. It's pretty annoying. If I want a copy, it's about $25 for the first 50 pages and $0.25/page after that, and of course it's not available in electronic format, even though that's they way they store it. Bastards. On the other hand, if my doctor asks for it, it doesn't cost anything. This is the sort of horseshit that makes people wonder how things could possibly be worse if the Feds were running the system.

Also on the agenda today is refueling the Sportage, filing my unemployment forms for this week, checking in with my agencies, and staying dry, which is going to be an achievement since it was raining when I woke up and is expected to keep raining all day. No idea yet what I'm doing this weekend; hopefully getting the Failbox whipped into shape will be part of the goings-on.

Okay dude....My first advice, it to get those records to you, you copy them then you give the copy to the VA....Or, the VA can get them from Kaiser once you sign a Release of Information form..then once they get scanned in our system, then ask for a copy of them. Unless the rules have changed, if you do it the second way I told you, you shouldn't have to pay for them...

Goof ball, ask me young grasshopper about VA stuff and I usually can direct you to the correct department...friend who has 21 years of knowledge.

I don't really need a personal copy, and as it worked out, I did exactly what you suggested: got the release form from Kaiser, filled all the parts out I could, and gave it to the VA clinic.

So far the local clinic has been very helpful & cooperative, but if I run into something off the wall I'll definitely drop you a line.
