Uncle Ron Saves the Day
After many days of arguing with the Insurance Company over non-emergency transportation and having it be denied... Dad's brother, Ron Beaton, came to the rescue.
Kathi had just gotten off another frustrating phone call with the insurance company when Ron called and offered to help. It was perfect timing and Dad said that "the cavalry had just arrived".
Kathi and I have been performing (daily) the difficult task of lifting Dad up and down, shoving him into the car, and lifting him onto the radiation table. Because Dad is not able to support himself in a standing position, I have to really grip him in order to lift. This has caused a lot of pain for Dad. A few days ago we heard a loud cracking noise when I lifted him. It sounded like it was coming from his ribs. Ever since that time, it has been very painful for Dad to be lifted. Now, thanks to Ron and his family, we can get non-emergency transportation for Dad and he can be transported properly (and I won't feel like I'm hurting my Dad anymore).
Thanks for sending the cavalry uncle Ron!
