I’m sitting at my desk attempting to put out another random post. I am using the blog as a reward system for doing a certain number of notes at a whack!
Conversation with my friend Rita:
Rita: You got me a coffee! And you didn’t even pour it in your lap today!
Me: Cripe, Rita! Give me some credit! I got a carrier! I went to college!
It strikes me that being per diem, my job is such that it is not far off of the old-time piecemeal workers in the factories. I am just paid by the head.
I am addicted to wild animal cam sites. This one has an African watering hole with all kinds of large and small animals. At the bottom of the page are other ones to click on… I highly recommend the long-eared owl and the hummingbird one (there are two of these …one is lousy the other is great!)http://explore.org/live-cams/player/african-watering-hole-animal-camera
So many people ascribe meaning to dreams, as do I on occasion, but sometimes I think they are just pure malarkey. I mean what kind of obscure message am I to take from my father’s sister eating a turkey sandwich? Yeah, see? That was the whole dream.
While doing notes today I am lamenting that I don’t really have any bizarre codes to use. Those readers with any connection to the medical/insurance profession will know what I’m talking about. No matter how distant your relationship is to the system, you will have been touched by ICD-10. It is a coding system for diagnosis to use when you’re looking for insurance coverage of your services. Last year it was increased from ICD-9 which had about 13,000 codes to ICD-10 that now has in one year’s time gone up to 68,000 codes. Why you may ask? Well, I guess it’s because they need to cover every possibility… and I mean EVERY possibility….
code V97.33XD: Sucked into jet engine, subsequent encounter. This means you survived the first time, and got sucked in again?!
W61.62XD: Struck by duck, subsequent encounter. Again. Too stupid to avoid stupid.
W55.41XA: Bitten by pig, initial encounter. It doesn’t even rhyme. No duck. No insurance coverage.
W220.2XD: Walked into lamppost, subsequent encounter. My thought is if this is the second occurence, there is a larger problem at work here.
Y93.D: V91.07XD: Burn due to water-skis on fire, subsequent encounter. My personal favorite next to Struck by an Orca (yup, its a real code.)
I may add after the next batch of notes, or I may just get the Hell outta here.
