The View From Here.

I'm out of Zofran, the one drug that made my life bearable. I was paying $20.00/ dose. I can't afford that any longer. My next appointment is tomorrow, I'll find out then what my options are. I've lost more weight- I'm down to the 120's. I'm vomiting (out of control) now that I don't have any drugs in me. Lucky for me, I have the home IV's pumping me up, twice a day, every day. This is my second bag of the day, which means I have some freedom for the rest of the afternoon. I say "some freedom" because I need to stay close to the bathroom.

And the bills have started to appear.
Good Christmas.
Even with insurance covering 80%, we're still going to be responsible for thousands of dollars. And we haven't even had the c-section yet. Sigh.
Oh! And we're supposed to be going on a family vaca to Disney World and Daytona Beach, Fl. in May. How the hell am I going to pull this off?

Look into programs that'll help you pay for the bills...they might just be for people without insurance, but it doesn't hurt to ask.

(remembering an old story) Go through hubby's pockets when you do laundry. You might find some money to pay the bills. :)

Take it one day at a time. Don't let the bills stress you out. One day you will pay them but nothing says you have to pay them this year.

Wishing you well for the doctor's appointment.

Oh, my - it sounds really, really rough! I'm thinking positive thoughts for you guys. I hope the doctor has something useful to say...

I'm home with a little stomach bug, but it pales in comparison to what you're going through... yeesh!

Good crap, sweetie.

I wish I had something more to offer. I really just want to give you a big hug. I know I've been quiet, but I'm thinking about you all the time.
