It could take up to four months…
Twelve days ago I had an MVA. A motor vehicle accident. I still don’t know quite how it happened, though there is no double about what happened. I wrote a lengthy blog post about it. I guess this is a follow-up.
After catching a taxi home yesterday at ACC’s expense – because I am not allowed to drive – I opened a letter. I knew the letter would be regarding a neurologist appointment that would result in answer the question “So when can I drive again?”
The letter didn’t tell me when the appointment would be except to say that while I was given high priority, it could take up to four months before I saw a neurologist.
No Driving for Mr. Ward
All the paper-work, from GP to ACC, says no driving until such time as I have seen a neurologist. That’s a long time in the scheme of things. While I appreciate that the appointment could happen a lot sooner than the “up to four months” the letter promises, this takes me into 2017.
Between now and the end of the business year, there are 73 work days. I am taking taxi’s to and from work. That’s 146 taxi trips; 146 taxi fares. It’s about $40 each way. That’s over $5500 just to get me to and from work. The blow is softened by the fact that this is at ACC’s expense.
That’s all for now.
