(This morning at about 11:15 I got a call from a girl in the billing department at the hospital. She told me that Blue Cross has turned down the major medical claim for Jane, to their surprise. I was surprised and not surprised, mostly not, I guess. The girl sounded embarrassed to tell me the news. I said I’d see Andrew Fife after 2:30 this afternoon. The girl said something about Jane and “skilled nursing care,” but I didn’t really understand her, and let that go. At once I thought of an appeal through Pete Harpending, of course, and a possible lawsuit.

(Jane ate well this noon, though. At 2:30 I cleaned our glasses and called billing. Andrew was out but the girl would have him call back. We watched In Search Of, and I read to Jane the short newspaper article about the death of Newell Mullin, who is Sue Watkins’ father. She started to read yesterday’s session when Andrew Fife called at 3:12.

(Andrew Fife said Blue Cross wouldn’t want the publicity of a suit in a case like ours, but I said they must go through this all the time. “You sound like me,” he said. My news upon returning to 330 didn’t help Jane any, but I thought she was taking it very well, everything considered.

(I don’t know what I’ll be doing tomorrow morning, I told her. I plan to call Pete at 9:00 AM, and will take it from there. I’d told Andrew Fife that Pete would be calling him, probably requesting records, and that Fred Kardon may be called or asked for a statement, and so forth. We’ll see. I may have to spend time getting our own records together.
