The orders have been updated. My CT scan for my legs is first, the spinal and head CT needs more work with scheduling and clarification with the radiologist on some variables. I forgot to CREATE my Urology visit for the 7th. I have added times and dates for the CT scan of my knees, the urology visit, the OT eval, and FINALLY my wheelchair evaluation and ordering! The urodynamics order might get dropped.

  • CT knees w/o contrast and with contrast? <ACTIVE> (1:00 PM Monday July 6)
  • Urology visit <ACTIVE> (2:30 PM Tuesday July 7th)
  • Occupational Therapy eval (monitor disease progression) <ACTIVE> (1:00 PM Tuesday July 14th)
  • New wheelchair (evaluation / ordering) <ACTIVE> (2:00 PM Thursday July 16th)
  • CT head & spine w/o contrast and with contrast (repeat due to 1 year passing since last CT series) (IP/OP) <WAIT SCHEDULING>
  • Pulse Oximeter (ordered by pulmonary) <INACTIVE> [WAIT FOR BETTER INSURANCE]
  • ETCO2 monitor (ordered by pulmonary) <INACTIVE>[WAIT FOR BETTER INSURANCE]
  • Muscle Biopsy – See if there is a muscular dystrophy or other disease directly affecting the muscle such as progressive rhabdmyolysis. (Live – To be scheduled) (OP / IP at doctors discretion)<WAIT SCHEDULING>
  • Toxicology panels (drug & standard) – See if disease caused by toxic mutagenic agent (OP) <INACTIVE>[WAIT FOR BETTER INSURANCE]
  • Urodynamics study (under anesthesia or neuromuscular blockade) (repeat due to question of suprapubic catheter) (IP)<MAY BE DROPPED>
  • Echocardiogram (repeat due to 1 year passing since last ECHO) (IP)<WAIT SCHEDULING>

are also waiting on a few other things to be ordered after the completion of these, the next order batch is. All of the below are considered dead until converted to live orders.

  • Tracheostomy & Ventilator, earlier the better. (IP) <PENDING CONFIRMATION>
  • Deep Brain Stimulator insertion surgery talk (new surgery in talks) (IP, Duh!) <DROPPED>
