why I have been away

Tuesday, June 15, 2010

ok, no excuses - just an update on where I have been.

started when we went to visit relatives on May 21, got home and found out our trailer was broken into, then DH had serious respiratory & I found out I have TMJ, then niece was here with hubby and baby for memorial day, then I get the respiratory crap for two weeks, trailer is not getting fixed and I have to raise holy heck plus on a soft food diet for 4 weeks now. going to get a biplane mouth piece only now my dh has a piece of wire from his hip replacement coming out and it is poking him in his side. really creepy & yucky if you think about it too mcuh. So his surgery is a week away and no more travel until he gets better.

trailer is getting fixed $400. under deductible
TMJ mouthpiece $550 not covered by dental insuarance
need new glasses for both of us $600-800 not covered by insurance
hip surgery - 80% covered by insurance unless we have met deductible or his worker's comp from when he got hurt 17 years ago actually pays for it! so who knows how much???

So am trying to juggle the dollars, emotions, stress and it is taking over life at the moment. By the time I get home I can't, and don't want to think. I want to click on fantasy and fall into it head long for a couple hours.

God will provide I know but I really thought I was old enough to avoid some hard times for a couple years - ah thank you for what I have, I will learn another lesson, may I learn the ultimate one soon.

thoughts of good will for all..

oh yeah anniversary of my Mom's dying is in 15 days too! love ya Mom

    Jann, my prayers and thoughts go out to ya. I am going through some of the same things, not exactly, but camper needing to be fixed, TB testing, DD school, finances, and yes, I have been feeling very similar to ya as to not wanting to think, go into fantasy land.

    Holy smokes, Jann - that's a lot to have on your plate. Health stuff is so stressful and hard, and if your trailer is your 'escape hatch' that's really gotta hurt. Big hugs to you and your DH, with prayers for better times to come very soon.

    Ohhhhhhhhhh my......I knew the anniversary of your mom was coming up or at least it was this month so have had you in my prayers since June 1 for that! Consider yourself hugged and that I"m sitting next to you, talking, listening, holding youro hand and just let it all out...what's the saying - when it rains it pours -- well you're in the middle of it figuratively and prob. literally if your weather is anything like ours! I know you don't see or feel it now but you can't have the sunshine -- or the rainbow -- without the rain. Cliche, perhaps but also very true....God is holding on to you tight telling you - if I brought you to it, I'll bring you through it!! Hugs dear friend!!

    So sorry to hear all that is going on in your life now :-(

    Always believe you will get through all this! "Footprints in the Sand" by Mary Stevenson is a great reminder that you're not alone.

    Prayers that things get better for you and your family very very soon.

    Jann - sorry to hear about all of your STRESS! I hope that you & your DH are on the mend soon. I have a glasses tip for you - I got mine at Costco for $150 this spring. Maybe you guys could look into that? It might even justify buying a 1 year membership for $50 just to get the deal. I had the eye dr give me a copy of the prescription & just walked into Costco & picked out my glasses.

    Hugs to you!!!
