Endocrinologist Appt 2-morrow-God willing it goes well-Prayers For Carmen Please
I always wake up at the puter reading bloggs and what do I see this morning first thing but Carmen saying she's in the hospital... Talk about panic mode... then I read on to see what was going on. Ok getting Appendix removed been there done that so I know the routine..Doesn't stop a mother from worrying especially since her health isn't the greatest. Finally got ahold of & talked to her Dad as he was on his way to the hospital. Fund out that the surgery went well and she was lucky they did the laproscopic surgery unlike mine where they actually cut me open...I was so relieved..Her recovery time will go so much easier for her and for that I'm Thankful!
But please do Pray that she gets out of the hospital tomorrow & for her speedy recover with no further complications from her other health issues..
Finally December 30th is here and I have my first appointment with the Endocrinologist. It has been the longest month in respect to waiting for this appointment to roll around.. I've done my best to try to enjoy the holidays and not think or worry about the three nodules they found on my Thyroid & how lousy I feel.
I've done a pretty good job of it most of the time with all of the Holiday going on's...but on those days that I was feeling really bad and at night when I would try to go to sleep it wasn't so easy.
I'm not sure what worries me more what they will find, if they will have to remove the thyroid, will I ever feel good again or the cost of everything.... Maybe all of it I suppose..
I got my Hospital Bills & all those other bills that come with a hospital stay and it's up to $8,000.00 so far.
I've applied for assistance for everything I can and god willing most of it will be covered cause I'd have to rob a bank to pay that bill off ..then tomorrow I go to another appointment that's gona cost up to $300.00 Holly Molly medical expenses are rediculous... I mean $8,000 for less then 48 hours in the hospital and all they did was an ultra sound on my thyroid, blood work & let me sleep in there bed...LOL...Oh yea they gave me some pill to make my body stop jerking all over the place.... That's it the pills cost $5000..
Oh well I guess ya got to do what ya got to do... All I want is to feel better so at least keep creating my crafts if nothing else...
I've been going crazy just sitting around feeling like crap....
So wish me luck with this Endocrinologist appt tomorrow...
I did get a call from Social Securty Disability today..All my paper work is in and then the guy who called me also filled out all the paper work over the phone and applied for SSI..suplimental Income for me. he said I should know within a week if I got denied or not... of course we discussed that most people are turned down/denied at least once..so if that were to happen he says you make sure you appeal it immediately so that you don't lose the time you applied/don't reapply just appeal...well of course I will..
But my prayer is that I'm not going to be denied and I'll be able to receive it at least for a few months until I can get my health back on track...Help with all these medial bills...
Then he tells me that I qualify for Social Security in July so I should apply for it in May so that It will all be done by July..
Lord have mercy but I feel old and broken down and I'm not old at all.. it seems so hard to beleive that one day not so long ago I was feeling ready to tackle the summer cleaning houses and then with the snap of a finger my whole body just fell apart and turned on me...
To darned bad we can't just trade our bodies in for a new one like we do our cars and vans...LOL..
On a lighter side I have been able to get out in the shop over the past week and have actually created 6 beautiful gatherings.. I'll save those to share with later..
While you are praying for Carmen could you put in a few good words for me too...I want to beleive that I'm due for some really good news and better days ahead so a few extra prayers can only help.!!
God Bless you all for being such great friends!!
New Year Blessings
