Ugh... I just found out that the PET scan I am getting next week will cost me about 1k out of pocket. I do have that amount on my flex-spending card--but that's most of the money I put on it this year.
That means no new glasses this year... and if I need any other surgery, it will be a challenge paying the rest of my max out of pocket.
Also, I have been trying to mentally not question the doctor's "oh, it's probably nothing, we just need to be sure" line about this scan, but that's not working today. (They did a CT scan of my torso, and found a cluster of extra lymph nodes. Not enlarged, but extra. I wasn't able to find any info online. The doctor said it could be cancer, but is probably not. If it were, usually they can tell from the CT alone.)
Oh, crap. I've now broken the mental covenant to not think about it too much and am thinking about it muchly.
