Put On your Dancin Shoes Prims, I'll pick ya up @ 7 were gona celebrate the power of Prayer!

A Happy Good Morning...Time to celebrate!! I got the best news in the mail this morning...!!
And I can only say one thing...well make that two things...there is much to be said about a circle of friends & Family joining in prayer for another and there is even more to be said about the power of prayer..

Last night I went into pack my Ebay shipment and found my mail on my packing table. there were 4 envelopes from Ohio State University Hospital... At first I didn't open them because I didn't want to bumm my happy mood. I figured they were just more bills to add to the already mounting bill that was at $14,000 plus as of Friday...I'm sure you can all relate to that..hehe..

But me being the Leo filled with Cat Curiosity I finally gave in and started to open them... One at a time..but I was already jumping up and down yelling at the top of my lungs, Thank You God, Thank you, thank You Thank, you as I read the letter in envelope #1.....
ARE you ready for this.. I'm serious get your dancin shoes on we are going celebrating...

Another of my/ours/your prayers has been answered....Praise God!!
One more stressful burden has been lifted.. The pain isn't gone, the shakes aren't gone, the muscle cramps aren't gone & my eyes are still messed up. & I still have to work threw surgery but I can now focus on getting well rather then focusing on how to pay for some/all these medical bills that are piling up on my desk.

The first letter read:
We have made our determineation regarding your eligibility for Finanical Assistance for services incurred at the Ohio State Medical Center.
You have been approved for Finanicial Assistance and the remaining balance on your above account above referred account is $0.00..

Envelope # 2, 3, and 4 were all the same. One for each account opened so far.
Each one has a $0.00 balance.
Two are for bills I haven't even received yet...

Its my understanding that approval last for 6 months from the date of my first visit to OSU hospital, then I would have to reapply. But God willing within 6 months the thyroid will be removed and all of this or at least anything related to the Thyroid will be resolved and I will be well on my way to recovery.

This doesn't cover Financial Assistance for Doctor bills I'm still waiting to hear from them. Ohio State has two assistance programs one for all medical, surgery, Lab & hospital expenses and one for Doctors. So I had to apply for both..

This may sound really silly but for the first time in my life I'm glad I'm poor...Gezz that sounds awful Ok I'm glad I'm not monetarily Rich... 
I'm a hard worker but I love my work it keeps me young and for the most part healthy but I have never made enough to buy any kind of Insurance and even if I did they would never accept my existing conditions, so there was never any point in trying to obtain Insurance...
5 years ago I lost everything but my house & Van because of Medical bills accumulated when I got really sick when my saliva gland filled with stones and plugged the duct, which caused a severe infection and finally the removal of the Saliva Gland.
Since I got really sick in July all I could think about was what is left to take away from me but my house and van..?
Thank God for hearing my prayers and your prayers, the light at the end of the tunnel is getting brighter and brighter...Knowing that the cost of surgery will be covered is such a relief...

I'm on the road to recovery and my vow is not to let anything keep me down..And I have God and all of your to Thank!
So my dear precious friends here in Blogland..put on those dancin shoes and do the two step..Say 7 tonight ...think of me and all of our friends here that we are praying for and celebrate in the power of prayer as we dance and Thank God for all the Blessings he has bestowed on each of us no matter how big or small..

I must leave you and go to the post office and ship out my Ebay sales for the week..and make a stop at the Pharmacy and grocery...sun is shinning so it will be a a good trip...

Until we meet again may God Bless your day with sunshine and happy moments!!

Blessings & Hugs to all

  13. So glad to hear that! You certainly can focus now on just getting better. He is watching over you. Blessings, Sandy

  14. Oh Tonya...this is awesome news!!
    God is good and prayers have been answered!!

  15. Tonya this is great news. Our state hospital also has a program like this. Over the years they assisted Ray a lot with bills and his meds. Like you I was ever so thankful for such a program. Your right insurances don't like to cover you with pre existing conditions and if they do you can't afford it. Trust me when I say I was thankful to be poor a lot of times.


  16. Oh Tonya - so happy to read of this wonderful news. What an amazing blessing.....God truly is good....Now don't go getting anything else out of whack doing that happy dance of yours! ;o) Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin

  17. Wow. What WONDERFUL news Tonya. I am so happy for you. Praise be to God. Keep believing, more great things will happen.



I'm so Blessed that you stopped by & shared your thoughts with me today! Reading your comments always makes me Smile!
