34312052_154680761289093_r.jpegDebra Grier is in Spanish Meadows Nursing Home in Katy, Texas since October 12, 2018. She was in ICU at North Cypress Medical Center beginning on September 20, 2018 after cardiac arrest and respiratory failure two days following her feeding tube placement. I am David Grier (Debra’s husband) and along with Margie (Debra’s Mom) we have taken care of her at home since being diagnosed with Primary Progressive Aphasia and Pick’s Disease in May of 2017.  We miss her at home and visit her everyday to show our love and support. She can no longer communicate and being on a ventilator through a tracheostomy tube is painful all the time. Witnessing the ordeal of a loved one in a degenerative disease is life changing. Debra changed my life when I first met her with her unwavering loyalty and unconditional love for me. She inspired me to be a better man and husband and that still continues today, even more.  She is my daily reminder of human resiliency and God’s grace. We need Debra rehabilitated and safe to come back to her home. Margie, myself and our beloved pups Alvin, Jasmine, Zooey and Cuddles need her back safe and secure to make us whole again. Please help if you can or share, I have my hands full everyday dealing with uncooperative insurance and bureaucratic government agencies. Debra deserves all the help she can get. Thank you, David

Debra has been cutoff from United Healthcare and we are having to appeal Medicaid’s denial. Medicaid processed our application incorrectly by filing it separately instead of jointly. I’m probably going to require an attorney. Over 25 % of our household income has gone to pay medical costs including out of pocket, deductible and prescription expenses the last two years. I am anticipating an enormous bill for the remainder of this month from Spanish Meadows. I will probably file for bankruptcy soon to protect what we have. Please help us if you can. If you have already helped, thank you so much.
No pay, no therapy.

Debra’s blood pressure has been very low since Thanksgiving and is requiring medicine to correct it. I just wrote an appeal letter to United Healthcare for Debra’s hysterectomy performed over a year ago. United Healthcare has put so much unwarranted stress and worry into our lives having to battle their asinine decisions. I believe since Debra can not speak for herself they are attempting to take advantage of her. That’s where they are wrong, I’m here. I will defend her forever.

Debra has been denied Medicaid, we have to appeal the decision. So all the institutions set up to help Debra have basically determined she is not worth it. God has forsaken her, Spring Fire Department threw her to the garbage pile and the U.S. and Texas governments could give a rat’s ass. So I appeal to all on Facebook. Why can’t Debra’s story go viral, how do I get it there. Please help or share.

Debra is progressing with all her therapies. She worked very hard today. We are having to fight United Healthcare about her surgery from last year, they have denied paying for her hysterectomy even though they approved it. I believe that UHC is intentionally kicking us when we are down.
Tired but smiling!
