We've been "fighting" with Medicare to continue paying for Pat's therapies. This week was our 4th appeal. The previous ones were granted, but our appeal was NOT granted this time. We are appealing to a "higher power" & of course, to God -- Who has all things in His hands. After today, all therapies cease (except for a couple of times a week). She's been getting intensive physical, occupation & speech therapy 5 days a week & has made great progress. It's sad that that may have to stop permanently. It can take up to 2 weeks to hear back about our appeal. Our biggest concern was eating, but Pat has been eating pretty well. We're hoping she gets the feeding tube out in a couple of months. She has some good days, when we can understand most of what she's saying & some bad days where after an hour we understand maybe 5 words. I don't think she can read right now & she can't write. Thankfully, she can understand everything we're saying. Thanks for your prayers. We are truly blessed to have so many people praying for Pat & for us. This has been so incredibly difficult.
So I got up this morning, coffee cup in hand & sat down at my computer. While I drink my coffee each morning, I Spark, read my email & say a quick hello on Facebook.
My email wasn't working. Long story short, my husband made a change to our account last night & I wasn't awake to verify my email address, so it booted me. Yikes!! I wasn't laughing!! But all is well now. I have my email back & I'm a happy camper.
So it's not even 5:00 a.m. & I've had a rough day already. You guys probably think I'm nuts, but my email is my connection with my family & friends.
