Insurance Approval Delays and Walking - October 24 2012

Still do not have insurance approval for Carfilzomib and Revlimid. I called St. Luke's in Twin Falls and they are still waiting on the approval. I called my insurance Case Manager (she is in Ohio) and had to leave a message. No one seems to realize I need these medicines sooner than later. I lost my patience a bit. Today was a hard day to forget I have relapsed x 2 high risk multiple myeloma.

So, I walked Kemmer 0.68 miles on the Mine Hill today - always calming for me. Our summer route was covered with snow and slick, so we walked the steeper Mine Hill road today beginning at 6,232 feet with a gain in elevation of 132 feet or the equivalent of a 11 story building to 6,364 feet. Cold at 37 degrees, but no wind and mostly blue skies.

My left foot and leg neuropathy continue to burn, but during the day when I'm active it isn't too bad. However, during the night, it interferes with my sleep.

  1. It's ok to be impatient with your insurance company. "cage rattling" works!
    Glad to see you on the mine hill again. You encourage me!
    Clark and I are in Ketchum for a few days. Dutch went to Dog Heaven yesterday:(
