|A Place To Vent-To Just Let Go|
Well, as you all know, I have been batteling this MRSA crap. I had ANOTHER outbreak!!! They keep getting worse and worse. And, of course the doctors get more pessimistic. If I hear one more doctortell me that they are surprised that I am still living and breathing without any complications or permanent disabilities yet, I am gonna scream! I recently wrote my will, got lots of life insurance, and started making the kids build a stronger relationship with my family so that when it comes time, I know they will be taken care of. I never stop hoping that I will find a way to pay for the treatment, though.
In the midst of it all, we found out that Laynee has a hole in her heart. WOW! Guess I should have been a little more prepared with as sick as she has been all her life.
I thought that if I got insurance through the company, we would come out all right. Yea, well the insurance for me and the kids is about $486 per month... AND it doesn't even cover my MRSA or Laynee's heart because they are pre-existing conditions.
Needless to say, another Christmas was going to be too hard. All the overtime I have been working has been going to paying medical bills. What money I did have left I was having that mommy struggle of buying the kids new clothes or giving Joshua a Birthday Party.
This is where the Christmas Wish came into play.
For several weeks, I have been beyond stressed out. With the virus and Laynee's heart, my job, my living situation, my finances, well you get the picture. But I haven't given up. I have held tight to my faith. At night I just kept praying that God would hit me upside the head with a brick. I feel so lost and alone. Being back in Texas is somewhat hard. I used to have SO many friends, but they were my party buds. I know I could call any one of them up and have every free night filled, but that is not a road I want to go back down. So, I just kept asking God to show me that he had not left me, he was still here with me.
God has a funny way of answering our prayers in ways that we never expect them to be answered. I am going to copy and paste an email that was read to me. It was a letter that my son wrote. He has asked his teacher to mail it for him.
My Mommy is sik agin. She wuss in the hosspitul. She is sad becuss she said she cant give me and sissy the things we need. My mommy says that we can ask you four what is in are harts.

Well, his teacher sent it to 94.9 KLTY, the local radio station. The first I heard of it was when the radio station called me and told me about it. They do this thing called "Christmas Wish" and they wanted to grant joshua's wish. On the phone was the Sr Pastor at Highland Meadows Church of Christ. He told me that they wanted to pay my medical insurance for an entire year. In addition to that, they were going to cover the treatment that I need for my MRSA and Laynee's Cardiologist Bills that are piling up. In ADDITION they bought the kids AND me bicycles and me a new bed, they replaced my couch (like my doctor suggested all those months ago) they bought a freezer and stocked it full of meat and they got me a spa package, bought art easles and play-do, movies, and board games. Truck loads of things for us!!!
I was, and still am, so overwhelmed... Just wanted to share real quick.
