Before I tell you guys what is going on, I thought I’d give you a little background on my husband and my mom. In 2005 my husband was rushed to the emergency room on Easter morning and was later diagnosed with a degenerative disease called “ankylosing spondylitis”. Our life was totally about to change. Since there is no cure for this disease we have spent lots of hours in and out of the hospital, several surgeries and more meds than I can count on my fingers.The Remicade infusions that he takes are $8,000 every 6 weeks. This is just one of his many meds .Without insurance it would be a scary situation.
My mom has has Klippel-Feil Syndrome which she has had from birth. Basically she has fusion of the last 2 cervical and all of the thoracic vertebrae which causes Scoliosis. The last 3 ribs in front are also fused. She also has a splitting of the Spinal Cord in the cervical area about 1 to 2 cm.They told my mom she would never walk, but grandmother put my mom in a snow suit and stuffed towels down the back and taught her how to walk. My mom could have been on disability since birth , but my mom is a strong woman and would not let this disease get the best of her. She went to college and became a Labor & Delivery Nurse.In 2009 my mom got very sick because a patient who was selfish and checked herself into Labor & Delivery because she had Pneumonia and didn’t want to wait in the ER. (The Hospital is not supposed to take those kinds of patients on that floor due to the babies) and mom had to go on disability due to her lungs.
In Jan. of 2010 we made the decision to have my mom move in with us. Because of the situation of being on disability with no insurance because it is the law that you must be on disability for 2 years to get insurance it was hard for my mom to financially stay in her house. Not only that someone tried to break into her house twice while she was at home! Many of you have wondered why I haven’t been as active lately so I just wanted to give you some answers to what was going on!
We got good news today! We found a house, they accepted our offer and we got the loan! So now all we have to do is get our house ready to put on the market! I am so excited! My mom is going to be such a big help! I will no longer have to worry about Daniel being at home now that I have a registered Nurse living with us. She is a great couponer and does a ton of behind the scenes work here on CQ so I hope to be saving even more money! She will be able to also take the kids to school until Taylor starts driving. Did I mention she is also a good cook?
