I was looking over my blog today, and I realized I had not written an update on my situation since the last part of January!
So for those of you who are interested, my wife had agreed to make an appointment with a gynecologist by February 7. That was a Sunday. The day before, on 2/7, Saturday, she told me that she had NOT made an appointment, but she really would be making one the next week. The next week would have been 2/8-2/12. Well guess what? I am writing this on February 19, 2016, and she has still NOT MADE AN APPOINTMENT!! She has had a full list of all the gynecologists on our network since 1/25/16.
What she did was tell me that she had heard of a doctor she thinks she would like, but he has a six month waiting list for new patients. So she did NOT make an appointment. Wow, sounds like she really tried, huh?
No, I didn’t think so either. After she told me that, which was around 2/3/16, I printed out a list of gynecologists on our network and started making calls. She was correct that the particular doctor she called has a six month waiting list for new patients, HOWEVER, he is the only gynecologist in town with a waiting list that long. I found three doctors who could get her in the week of 2/8-2/12, four who could get her in by the end of February, and 7 who could get her in the first week of March.
So it is very clear that she deliberately made a choice to forgo making an appointment when she had 14 other choices of doctors. It is like she is DARING me to do something about it.
So if you read this and want to comment, please do. What do you do when someone says she is going to do something this critical, and defiantly refuses to do what she agreed to do?
