    Yeah. It's just frustrating when you don't have an idea of what you're really facing.

    Just hang in and stay strong for your mate. I’m sure you will hear soon. Are you in a large or small community? That affects medical practices a lot especially on things like waiting for test results. Keeping a vigil for both of you.

    Smaller community, one major hospital nearby. She's too weak to make it upstairs to go to bed or take a shower right now. She has a hard time just getting out to the garage into the car. Had to call EMTs out more than once to help because if she falls, she's basically dead weight.

    We tried to set up Real Services but our household income is too high and her insurance won't pay for visiting nurses or bath aides. She's not a small woman and I can't just pick her up and carry her around. Wanted to move from this fricking split level to a single floor apartment but she's fricking hardheaded. It is what it is...

    I’m sorry. Maybe something will break for you. That’s what I am hoping.

    Very sorry to hear about this, DLK. Best of luck staying strong and positive.

    This bolded part of the quote just drives me nuts, though, and it seems to affect a lot of us. Make too much money to qualiy for this, but your insurance company refuses to do this...as if going through cancer isn't bad enough.
