Yesterday I had seen my Gastro, He walked in the room and told me I didn't look good. I told him I was very tired and didn't sleep much the night before, not to worry I wasn't worried about coming in. And that I was in the car since 9:00 this morning and I had got home ate a bowl of cereal and left to come down to see him.

My blood work was great and I don't have to see him for another year. We did schedule an EDG for the 23rd of this month. No colonacopy YAY!!! I hate those things.

Well I do need to call my chiro I am out of adjustment and I hurt all over. My fingers are giving me some problems to, it's the knuckle areas. I try to keep my fingers moving as much as possible. Need to chat with the rheumatologist maybe I will email him this morning.

Found out yesterday that my husband the company he workd for sold it to another company and they are not sure if they will keep it going or not. I do worry about this alot because I need my medicine for all my problems. The jobs around here are not great paying jobs anymore. And most of them don't give you any medical. Another thing I am worried about. Well I will deal with that when the time comes.

Well I need to get going I need to call my lawyer still havent heard anything about disability yet. Need to make other calls to. Take care Sam

Sam,
Thanks for the update. It's always good to hear a doctor say "See you next year!" Congratulations. I hope things work out in the others area - hubby's job and your disability. Just let us know.
Big Hugs,
Janey

Hi Sam,

I do know what you mean about not wanting to lose insurance because of all the meds we can be on! I'm glad to hear that you don't need to see your Gastro for another year anyway, and hope that the chiro brings some quick relief to you.

I was wondering about other insurance options for you in Ohio since there are quite a few here in NY, many of which work on a sliding scale fee based on both income and medical expenses. There are programs such as Child Health or Family Health Plus, Value Med, etc. for those that don't qualify for Medicaid or Medicare, and they have great coverage, especially for prescriptions.

I got a list of different providers from the Social Services office, but don't know anything about OH, and was wondering if you might have some other options in case something happens to your husband's company. Having some other options might take a load off your mind, even if you can't change the employment situation. I hope you do have something available like NY'ers do!

Best wishes to you,
Elehos
