4 Calls and the Sickie Ickies

After making 4 calls to check and see if my Medical Records were sent to this Surgeon Specialist for Consultation, I finally got a YES. Records were just sent yesterday, two weeks after they should have been. -Sigh-

Still waiting. Still wondering how this surgery is gonna happen when I have two kids to drive to and from school. Even more complicated is a husband who works 14 hour days and can't take time off. Maddison's agility classes, Hannah's Volleyball Practice and tournaments. Our days are packed full, and I don't have the time to be down for a week or more. Then there is the stress of what this will all cost in the end, how many months will it take us to pay off these new medical bills?

The kids have been home with the Sickie Ickies, like everyone else out there I hear. Throats on fire. No strep though, weird how that happens. Cough, headaches, muscle aches. The whole thing. Maddison's blood sugar runs low at night when she is sick, and high during the day. WEIRD. As of yesterday the ickies finally caught up to me, this really IS a throat on fire! I thought the kids were just dramatic. I've got the fever, headache. And low blood sugar to top it all off. When I'm sick I run low. I hate that.

So, 4 calls and the sickie ickies has me worn down when we are supposed to be outside enjoying the 80's weather! Next week is Spring break and we better all be feeling better!!

So sorry to hear about everything you're going through. Wish we all lived closer to each other so we could help out.

We all have that exact virus you're talking about. UGH... it SUCKS! Hope everyone feels better soon!

Get Well SOON! I am in the same boat right now all I got.

We'll figure it out. I'll come get her and keep her with us for a few days. Don't worry about this stuff. Hopefully your mom will help you take care of YOU -- Hannah can find a friend to bunk with for a few days -- and we'll take Maddison.

We'll figure it out.
