I'm still here! I seriously do not know how two months have passed since my last post, except that life has been moving along at breakneck speed.

What's happened around here lately:

- We hired an attorney who last week sent a letter to DS's lending company detailing how the wire fraud originated on their end because of their lax practices and setting out the expectation that they reimburse DS. Hoping that settles this, but not counting on it.

- Younger DS received the first-ever treatment for his disease. It was supposed to be given via spinal injection, but his spine is fused and there was no opening. The doctor was able to successfully dose him by going in through his neck. DS is already reporting a noticeable increase in energy levels so we are praying he continues to see progress. Unfortunately, the treatment is not a one-time thing. We head back for #2 the week after next. Very thankful insurance is covering it in full. The medicine alone is $125,000 a pop.

- Insurance screwed up payment for his wheelchair so I had to file an appeal. Again. At least we have the chair now.

- DS's optometrist's office filed with the wrong insurance for his last visit. Straightening that out has been more trouble than it should be.

- Between treatments, PT and various specialist visits, we have 13 trips to the hospital scheduled between now and the end of the year.

- I have a cracked tooth. It was determined last week that it can't be saved so I need to have it extracted. Insurance will cover the cost, but the oral surgeon requires payment upfront and then they file insurance for me. Waiting to hear the amount I will have to come up with - even though temporarily. The only bright side of this is that it is the very last tooth in the back of my mouth, so I don't have to run out and get an implant to keep me from scaring small children when I smile.

- My knees are giving out, too. For now, cortisone shots seem to be doing the trick - I had two of them last week. Knee replacement is in my future, but my surgeon wants to wait a few years as long as the shots are giving me relief. Good thing, I sure don't have time for that.

- My granddaughter is 10 months old and keeping me on my toes. I keep her while my daughter works and I now understand why God gives us babies when we are young. I used to think nothing of this when I had 3 little ones. At 54, not so much.

- I have finished Christmas shopping. We only buy for the kids and gift cards for my parents, so it's manageable. All paid in cash.

- I will be hosting 13 for Thanksgiving. I've farmed out most of the dishes and I just saw that the grocery store has turkeys for 37 cents a pound, so I'll be heading over there tomorrow.

- Not much else to talk about on the finance front. I'm close to paying off a Capital One card. It will be done by the end of the year. So yay. DH is planning to retire in 8 years, so it's getting real. We need to get rid of everything before then. Keeping the faith ...



  1. I am so proud of you and still just sick to mu stomach about sons fiasco. You sound chipper. I keep watching your progress and getting excited for you.

  2. I just found your blog. It seems like your son has had a really bad time, from the few posts I read. Hopefully, that will resolve, soon, and that he is enjoying his new home. Honestly, it's awful, but he is young, has a job, and was able to move in. I'm glad he could do that.

    13 hospital visits seems like a lot. Hang in there.

  3. Thanks for update. I often wonder how your journey is going and hope you are doing well. Keep up that positive attitude! I'm rooting and praying for you!

  4. I love when credit cards get paid off, can't wait to read the update when it is officially gone. I hope things work out well for your son and he gets some of his money back.

  5. I'm so happy that DS is getting some relief from his injection. At that price I should hope so!! Hope all the other issues get resolved quickly (wheelchair, optometrist, wire fraud). Those are some heavy duty issues but as usual you keep a stiff upper lip and carry on. I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving with your family!!

  6. Thank you for sharing valuable information nice post,I enjoyed reading this post.

    I am Michelle Huxford from Casper, Wyoming. I was in a very chronic financial issue and terminal health situation some few weeks back. After all my search for assistance from friends and neighbors proved abortive, I feel there was no one who truly cares. I became so emaciated due to lack of good food and my 2 kids age 5 and 8 were not also good looking due to lack of proper care as a result of finance. One faithful morning I saw an old time friend of my late husband and I told him all I have been going through and he said the only way he could help was to direct me to a good loan agency that also helped him, He explained to me on how he was financially down and how he got boosted by this loan agency UPSTART LOAN INC ( ) who grant him 245,000 USD loan at an affordable rate. He further assured me that they were the only legit loan firm he found in the quest of seeking for loan after been scammed by various fake loan lenders online. He gave me their email: or text/call (574) 301-1639, That was how i applied and was also granted a loan and my life changed for the good. CONTACT THE ONLY GENUINE LENDERS( UPSTART LOAN INC) VIA email: or call +1 (574) 301-1639 to resolve your financial mess............
