Hi friends! Thanks for all your help, messages, and prayers! You’re the best!
If you haven’t heard I have cancer – you can read my story with updates here.
I have been feeling pretty good – still some random pains here and there in my abdomen, tiredness, and aches and pains from my osteoarthritis exasperated by chemo. I wonder if I’ll ever get rid of my creaky, crackly knees?!
I was supposed to have a scan a few weeks ago and my insurance denied me – not the entire scan but the lung portion – the scan is multiple prescriptions – the abdomen is one and the lungs are another. They approved the abdomen but not the lungs.
My doctor has to appeal and try again to get approval. If not, I’ll have to pay the entire portion for the lungs. Sigh, sigh, sigh. . . to say I’m mad is an understatement. I want my doctor making my medical decisions for me, NOT an insurance company.
Before I was sick I heard the medical system in our country was messed up and I didn’t understand how. Now I know. Yet I’m still grateful to have insurance, being sick is way worse without it, although I want to rip my hair out at times.
In other sad news, my cat, Moon has been sick with kidney failure. He spent 4 days last week at the vet’s office being treated but didn’t improve. The vet sent him home saying she couldn’t do anything more for him.
Me being stubborn wouldn’t accept that as his fate and after doing some research started treating him myself. He’s made a complete turnaround in the past 3 days and gone from eating two nibbles of food a day to eating almost as much as he ate before he was sick.
Please pray for him to recover! I know you are all capable of miracles being I’m living proof. He’s the love of my life and I’d give up one of my own kidneys for him if I could.
Thank you all for your continued support! Big hugs! XOXO You can donate to My Go Fund Me here.
