I would be glad that I have a long weekend now but I’m on call for the first time in awhile. And wouldn’t you know I got a call from an independent review entity at 9am yesterday? Someone from a member’s family wants to appeal something. Our company is supposed to operate from 8-8 every day but we're only physically in the office Mon-Fri from 9-5. The rest of the time we're on call. The care management department usually emails the department a list of people and materials for any possible appeals that we may get over the weekend and they didn’t send us anything whatsoever for this particular person. So I had no idea why this member would appeal anything as she wasn’t on any list. After speaking with my supervisor on the phone, it turns out we had gotten an appeal from her family last week. She was inpatient at a hospital and they wanted to discharge and transfer her into a skilled nursing facility. They never did so as the member’s condition worsened. Now the facility wants to discharge this member again and the family isn’t having it. The thing is, the facility never told the plan that they intend to discharge her. I had to call the Supervisor of Care Management for more information. That person stated that the last thing that the hospital told the plan was that the member had a fever on Friday. The plan usually doesn’t want the member going anywhere with a fever but we didn't know what the facility was doing because now they want the member discharged. Does the member not have a fever now? We didn't know, because no one was able to get a hold of anyone at the hospital yesterday for more info. This morning, the Care Management Supervisor finally got a hold of someone at the hospital who said the member is stable and is ready to be discharged but the family wants her to stay there (why I have no idea). We're now waiting for the hospital to send some documentation to the CM supervisor so she could issue a notice to this review entity that will actually be handling the appeal. But as of now, the hospital hasn't sent anything. I should not be this stressed on a Sunday.

Wow. How long of a flight is it between GB and Aus? Do you fly over Asia or the Americas?

Ed will go via Singapore. It's about 22 hours not including stops at airports. That's the short route. It's about 28 hours via the US.

I didn't read them either until W_S mentioned them. All I can say to the men who are getting all fired up about how not all nice guys are "nice guys": "Me thinks the lady doth protest too much"

Yeah, that's some Shakespeare slapping the fedora of your douchey head. How's it feel?

NC is so much nicer to be on since they got rid of those horrid in-line ads/links. No more errors, no more freezing up the computer, no more pages jumping around, etc.
Thanks to the powers that be.

Rumor has it that Harrison Ford is considering reprising his role as Hans Solo. What the what? Just say NO!! Give it up already. And I love Harrison Ford.

Long flight! Do they let him out at all? Will you be on a separate flight?

No but he will have a pretty big transport crate. They're bigger than standard cat carriers. I'd like to be on the same flight but it depends what the transport company puts him on. I could book his ticket first and then try to book myself on the same flight. I won't be allowed to see him at the other end for a few days either, and after that only twice a week for his quarantine period. I feel so mean planning this. Actually going through with it is going to be heartbreaking for both of us.

I love creepy hallways.

I half expected the little girls from the Shining to be at the end. "Come play with us, Danny"

That is exactly what I said. I sent the pic to my friend and said it was the perfect place for two little ghost girls to play.

Or someone to get axe murdered

I read about this when I was considering moving overseas. A big part of not looking into it further was the animal quarantine requirements. I'd be heartbroken too. I'm sure he (and you) will be ok though!

Thankfully Ed's quarantine will be 30 days rather than 6 months like it used to be.

I want to pamper her while she heals, but I want her to buck up, too. At the moment, I'm not even sure she'd try to steal butter off the counter, one of her all time favorite acts of mischief and gluttony.
They'll all adjust faster than you realize. She just had major surgery and her body feels different and her balance is off. That will make her act insecure until she gets sure footing. She probably smells different because of the scents and odors she was expose to at the Vet's. She'll be up and running in no time and they'll be best buds again. Pamper her and love her but you also have to let her stretch out and test her new - don't want to say limitations - body changes.
Just keep an eye on them and follow their body signals.
