Denise Vance Ulery  WESLEY CHAPEL, FL

I am a 36 year old mother of 2 boys ages 3 and 11months. I am a Stay-at-home parent and my husband works two jobs to keep us afloat. In August of 2011 and again in July 2012, I had a stroke. Both times, we were told that my husband made too much money to recieve medicaid and I had no insurance at the time. The medical bills just keep coming and I will be on medication that requires monthly testing indefinitely. My husband recently changed employment with better hours and pay, but since I have a preexisting condition, I am forced to take COBRA insurance which is expensive and pretty much takes all of our money that would be used towards medical bills, and medication.
This situation is very stressful and worrisome as I was told that the doctors have no idea why I keep having strokes and that stress can cause them. I have had every doctor I have seen tell me that it is best that I stay home and not work. I feel guilty because my husband is doing the best he can and I worry constantly about how we will even be able to pay our mortgage most months.
I would really appreciate any help that would alleviate my stress and allow me to enjoy the time I have with my boys as I never know when my time may run out.

Update 19

It has been awhile since we have posted an update, so here it is.

We moved to back to Ohio at the end of October and have been adjusting to the frigid temps and shoveling of snow. We did this to be closer to family in case Denise's health takes a turn for the worse again. No one in thier right mind moves from Florida to Ohio willingly.

Denise has been going weekly/biweekly to a clinic that is quite a bit more expensive than the Florida clinic , however after a year of trying, her Coumadin levels are becoming regulated.

Rob got a job transfer to the Banfield Pet Hospital in Beavercreek and is very happy there.

That is all of the new for now,

Thanks for all of the generosity,

The Ulery's

Today is a big day for me. This marks a year since my second stroke. Tomorrow, I can breathe a little easier. Then to just get through August without another stroke is my next goal.
