The Dentist Called

Hey boo,

How's it going?

So, the dentist's office left me a voicemail.  Apparently you've been on the cancellation list for a long time and looking for an appointment late in the day.  They've had several and have tried to reach you, but they weren't sure if you changed your phone number or something because they can't reach you.  Sigh... Cancelling your phone was one of the first things I did the week after everything happened...

Well, I obviously had to call them back, and let them know about the situation.

Ugh, what is the right way to tell people?  I kind of thought the dentist office already knew, because it seems like most other places knew.  Your "primary physician's" office, the kids pediatrician's office... C'mon dentist, get with it!

Of course, I said what happened, and she was very surprised and I got the usual "I'm so sorry" response.  And I said my typical "Thank you." 

How many more calls am I going to have to make like that?  When will mail stop coming addressed to you?  The hospital bills finally started coming to "The Estate of" your name instead of just your name.  

Is this all really happening?

  1. Sarah, I don't mean to preach to you, but you should delegate someone else to do things like this for you. A close friend or one of your family members. You have so much else on your plate and this should not have to be one of them.

    I'm so sorry this is happening to you. Still thinking of you....
