Ultrasonic errands 5


Today we had (hopefully!) my last appointment before getting insurance to approve my surgery. I had an ultrasound. Due to insurance inanities, we had to go all the way down to Lancaster to get it done. It was a long drive (40 min), but once we got there, we were completely done in less than 15 minutes!

I lay on the table, while Hestia sat on my neck and upper chest area so the technician could access my abdomen. Hestia was very good! I wanted a picture of us getting the ultrasound, but the lights were very dim in the room so it wouldn’t have turned out well. I also turned in my consent to sterilization form, which my insurance requires. They said the doctor will look at the ultrasound on Monday and then send in the request to insurance again.

On our way home, we stopped by Walmart to get meat for Ollie, grapes, and yogurt. Hestia was excellent in the store! She was heeling nicely, leaving-it every time she was asked, and did a good job of ignoring people. I only gave her about 6 treats the whole time we were in the store, mostly using praise as a motivator. I was so proud! Now if only she could do this when her doggie friends are around!

Brad got a few pictures of us in Walmart getting grapes. I am wearing holiday leggings with Corgis on them and a red shirt. Hestia is wearing her red mesh vest.

Veronica stands next to the grapes and looks down at Hestia.  Hestia is sitting next to her and calmly watching a young boy running across in front of her.

Veronica smiles at the camera while Hestia sits next to her and looks up at her.  You can see the green reflective heart keychain on Hestia's vest very well.

Brad told Veronica to "put one leg up", which in his mind apparently meant to pose like a 50s housewife with one leg cocked.  Veronica didn't know this was his interpretation, so she lifted one leg up at a 90 degree angle and almost fell over!  Hestia stands by looking off to the side.
