The other day I posted a frivolus want but now I have a need and I
wish I didn't. :(
I've been very sick the past month with a uti that won't go away.
I've been in the hospital 3 times (for a total of 13 days) &
they think it might be coming from my bladder. I also had upper gi
blockage & also was passing out constantly. Needless to say
besides the hospital, i've been seeing a ton of specialists &
on a ton of medications.
We have insurance but all our money has gone towards $35 specialist
co pays (sometimes 3 a day) & $20 co pays for medications. Plus
the $150 ER co pays (6 so far). We haven't even started paying off
the hospital bills yet.
But with all that we still had $150 put aside for back to school
shopping for our 4 kids. Hannah is going into 8th, Julia is going
into 6th, Ian is going into 3rd & Jack is going into K. I know
$150 wasn't going to go far but thanks to some friends who have 4
girls a little older then my girls, we got some uniforms &
shoes for them.
Today I had to have a cysoscopy done to have my bladder biopsied,
they think it might be cancer. My urologist office is in the
hospital but its an actual office so we figured a $35 co pay for
the procedure. We were wrong, it was the same as an ER copay which
is $150 but because they were an office & not the hospital
themselves, we couldn't just add it to our bill..they had to have
payment up front. So we had no choice but to pay the $150.
My kids desperately need socks, it's our biggest need for school
right now, we don't have a single pair left. Plus the boys only
have one pair of crocs that they have been wearing all summer &
you can't wear crocs to school. Jack is going into K & has
never had a backpack so he needs one now and Ian's backpack was so
nasty, we had to throw it away at the end of the year.
If anyone can be a hero & help us out as such a tough time, I
would be forever grateful and pay it back 10 fold. Thanks so
