Reality

Our first purchase of Diabetic supplies........

$107!!!

That was just for 100 test strips.

That honestly will only last a few days.

Maybe a week.

Bring back the tears that I have spent the last 3 days trying to hide.

Yikes! At least you don't have to wait too long until your new insurance kicks in!

Shannon said...

You would be right Rob about the insurance, but it is only part time insurance. There is a small team trying to figure out how much if any of this it will cover.

We did find some on ebay that my rockin hubby won for half the price last night! That will be helpful!

So sorry to hear about everything you have been going through!! I am sure it's emotionally draining (as well and physically, financially, etc.) You will make it through and will be stronger for it. It's amazing WHAT we will do for our kids... for their health and safety. Your family is in our prayers.

Shannon,
I bet their is something that can help you with the diabetic supplies. I know that when Anthony was diagnosed with MS the MS society helped us. Your family will be in our prayers.

I told a friend of mine about your situation and she brought up this website.

Ryan was reading the Ensign the other night and read me this quote from Elder Wirthlin's talk in October conference, I immediately thought of you!

"The third thing we can do is understand the principle of compensation. The Lord compensates the faithful for every loss. That which is taken away from those who love the Lord will be added unto them in His own way. While it may not come at the time we desire, the faithful will know that every tear today will eventually be returned a hundredfold with tears of rejoicing and gratitude."

:( What about CHIP? Praying here that something works soon for you. Not fun at all.
