Small update

Mayo was a bust. W got up there and her HMO decided to deny the claim while we were at registration. I kid you not. So we came home early. Lawyers are involved now and it's a big mess. Now we have to try for an appointment to the Universtiy of Iowa Medical Clinic. Had our annual jewelry sale in the office today and I made $300. I'll put the remainders up online soon. I'm heading to Colorado to go elk hunting tonight. I'll be back mid next week. I'll go into detail on everything when I return.

Time to set fires. Big ones. Gas-powered ones.

EMAIL ME!!!!!!
PLEASE!!!! Email me everything you can think of about Deb's condition that she doesn't mind sharing. I really think I can help here. I've found out two things throughout my own ordeal and that is this. 1) You can NEVER be too educated or get too many opinions on something like this. 2) Sometimes fellow patients can make better doctors than doctors because we have an understanding and empathy doctors don't.

I really, really think I may be able to help out here, as I've been all around these kinds of issues and I may be able to give you some advice and help. I'm doing so much better myself so don't worry about burdening me. I want to help, really. So, if you can and Deb says it's okay, please send me whatever you can about what's going on and let me see if I can make sense of it.

*hugs* to you and Deb, and I'm so sorry you have to go through this.

Re: EMAIL ME!!!!!!
Thanks love, I will email you with everything. I was going to before and then you were having problems so I didn't. I think I've got it all written up somewhere. We do have an appointment at university of Iowa nuerology now for January 26 so we have our fingers crossed. She has the flu right now so it's hard to tell if she is doing ok or not.

I'll email you soon.

This makes me feel angry on so many levels. You are both in our thoughts and prayers, as always, brother, but especially now.

Don't let that shut door keep you from what you need. Extra big hugs.

Just wanted to say what everyone else has already...

I'm sorry to hear the news, am sending good vibes, and if there is anything I can do just ask. I'm sure many of us out here in the online world would do what we could for ya'll.

That really, really sucks. Insurance can be such a pain in the ass sometimes. Best of luck...

That is unfuckingbelievable. I am so sorry. HMOs are truly evil incarnate. I hope this gets straightened out fast.

Hey old man hadn't dropped you a line in a while and I figured I'd do so now. Hate to hear bout the HMO, how's the rest of life in general?

That is despicable. Mom always told me if I take a job with another company, make sure they have good insurance companies on their side. Well, if these sort of actions are what make an insurance company "good", I can't promise I won't consider some of the bad ones. In all seriousness, I wish nothing but the absolute best for the both of you. Good luck in your hunt, and in health.

Been there, done that, and bought the T-shirt.

Insurance companies are so despicable. Hope the lawyers will be able to help!
