I did receive 2 hospital bills for the first hospital I went to. It looks like the total for that plus medication equals over 1/3 of what I have received thus far. But, I still have no idea about surgeon fees. Again, let's keep our fingers crossed.
Everyone has been so generous that I would like to send you a thank you gift. People I know personally or have spoken with will have gifts sent out sooner. People I don't know, I will send you a message checking to make sure you are able to receive gifts. If you have an alternate name or address, please message me just so there is no confusion or mistakes made. I would not want to out anyone for sending an anonymous gift & will be respectful of your privacy.
Tomorrow, I am going to attempt wearing makeup for the first time in weeks. I will take a photo and post it for you.
Thanks to everyone again. I will be closing this account and withdrawing funds next week.
I visited with the surgeon on Friday & he is also pleased. At this point, my nose will have to heal as is. And in a few weeks when the swelling goes down, they will be able to determine if I need further surgery on my nose or scar revisions. Half of my face is still numb & the scabs inside my nose makes me a mouth breather. But, everything is looking up.
I can not thank each and every one of you enough. Your help and support means a lot. While, what I have raised thus far will most likely not fully cover what I need, it will really help out towards the continuously multiplying medical bills. I am going to keep the fundraiser open for another few weeks until my next doctor's appointment when I have more information. And I will be contacting each of you directly & sending you a thank you present.
I am so sorry for your injury and wish you a quick recovery. One lucky aspect is that dogs' mouths are actually clean...it is cat saliva that has a lot of weirdness. Again, good luck and take care!
Mistress Maya Sinstress, Sorry to hear about your incident. Hope you have a speedy recovery with no further problems. As several others have already done, do check with the hospitals, etc. cash paying folks get the short end of the stick and highest prices. Most give insurance companies a discount. If you don't ask they don't offer. Well take a little but try to get something to you. It was my pleasure to meet you here in Columbus at Outland. Wish i was closer to offer more help. Keep up on your rest and rehab. Sincerely georgette.
Being out of work for 2 yrs now, can't financially help, but I am attacking the heavens with prayers attached to your name
I just found out just now. It may take a week or so but you'll get one from me too. No one was as instrumental in rescuing my writing and introducing me to some truly wonderful people about 7yrs ago, as you. Couldn't have ever asked for a better more loyal friend. It was just what I needed to restart something great, after my own traumatic time, alwaus felt like nothing bad could ever happen to me if I was in your company, as you never proved me wrong. I only have good things to say about you. I know we didn't talk as much later on, but hey, when people we care about are in trouble it's best to spring into action and let them they are in our thoughts. There wouldnt be a Wooden Box Theater without you, so make a speedy recovery and you'll be in our thoughts.
I am sorry this happened honey. Here is to a speedy recovery. Please do ask the hospital about allowed charity cases. They do have to accept a certain number every year.Please let us know if there is anything else you might need.
I just had a small procedure done in the unemployed and no insurance predicament. I eventually found out there was a financial aid application through the hospital specifically for people with no insurance that don't qualify for medical state aid. There are many programs out there, but they tend to be hard to find. Ask around the hospital, any organizations affiliated with the hospital, church groups, etc. I just started on this research process so I'll keep you posted with what I find.
Maya does everything for everyone else. It is time we all not just loved and adored her, but reached out to assist her during her time of need. She wouldn't ask, but I sure as fuck will ask for her. If you have the means, please help. The faster the better too!
This made me tear up babe. I'll get some cash together from me and Jim and get it to either you or Jeremy. XOXO
