The neurologist's office called today to confirm next Wednesday's appointment. Imagine my surprise when I asked the person who called if he would be having a sleep-deprivation or routine EEG and they said "Neither, this is just a followup appointment."

I went to call back this afternoon once he popped out around the corner to get a soda and learned the office stops answering their phones at 3 PM on Fridays.

I am starting to think that the hospital has a wildly unrealistic idea how long it takes to get an EEG as an outpatient when they told us we should be able to schedule one this (now over) week. The soonest appointment we were able to get calling this past Monday was ten days out -- and it turned out to be for a followup, not the test we were told to schedule.

Experience has taught me that the right hand doesn't know what the left hand is doing, and in medicine that can be very dangerous.

I'm sorry they're asshats.

Indeed.

With the VogonDad going with us on Wednesday, I think we can get things straightened out with a minimum of fuss. (His presence will be very helpful since Vogon has been very easily frustrated this past week. This morning he told me I might as well cancel the neuro appt, but I have no intention of doing that.)
