My story was too long and seemed overwhelming when read. So the bottom line is we are in dire straights and have 5 months to work on making changes so life is more secure both health wise and financially. I know no one can buy a house or a mortgage. I'm not asking for anyone person or persons for that. I am asking for folks to contribute in an ongoing basis so we can reach an amount that gives us space to make the move to a stable living situation and start to wipe out the thousands in bills. To be honest this is a scary situation as we have no resources if something happens. That's why I am reaching out to folks.Shared Pain is LessenedShared Joy is IncreasedHelp where you can.

It's b been a rough and tumble past 3 weeks. On 2-22 I had what docs to often call a procedure. Well there for me severe complications. I had a pain pump installed and had an overnight stay following. Well they managed to severely bang the L3 nerve. I have placed this at #2 on the list of difficulties we have gone through over the last 4+years. Only my initial entry when my shoulder blade was fractured and that pain was worse than the pain following this. Anyone see irony here? Pain was an 11. Pump didn't touch it until adjusted and I did nothing for 7-10 days. The damage not only was painful but I had no strength in either leg so I could barely walk needing something to hold me up. And the lumbar nerves control bodily functions which were terribly compromised. You fill in the rest. I also had to wear a belly brace which tucked my innards into a ball further stopping these functions. One of the bennies of pump was get side effects down. I was especially excited about this cause chemo brain was enough to deal with. After adjustments I was in a new deeper dog than ever. Befuddled. Couldn't think. Unstable on already compromised legs. It was quite scary as I have always said if I have a brain I'll be okay. I may need to reassess. So 3 weeks of this has felt like forever. In often forget how much pain eats into your psyche. Absolutely horrible and pernicious.
If you desire send me your thoughts on this kind of thing and insights if you had surgery and is effects.
Grace and love

Well I just had what turned into a fiasco of a procedure which should have gone a bit more smoothly. So this post is about 2-3 weeks late. In another I'll talk about the procedure. Cancer brings a level of anxiety that is constant and pervasive. One aspect for me is the daily mail and wondering what bills will come through and then deciding who gets paid and when in a way that generally at least as much as possible while we can. Several came this week as beginning of year insurance doesn't cover as much. Got a bill for 1500 the cover our part of the tests to see if we could change treatments. Basically the whole array of MM tests. This post is an all for donations to that s specific bill. So far we have been generally able to keep with bills many with donations. Please donate so we can stay solvent. Thank you.

I've finally decided to make the move. I'm getting a meds pump installed as the pain is to intense and debilitating. I made this decision reluctantly. But after our heavy snow and the little shoveling needed to get car out my back said no more. I've been hopeful things would settle down but that was my own denial about how sick I am. Having nothing to compare it to I thought surely things will get better. They have not. Installing pain pump is an admission of how sick I am. And it sucks. It's been nothing but 4yrs of loss. But as I look ahead it's clear the physical things we need to do are getting harder. I'm not sure how well handle things moving forward. I'm not supposed to lift more than 15 lbs. Raise arm's over shoulders. On top of our crappy money situation, is one more acknowledgement how this Cancer has made life tenuous. We have 3 months to finalize our decision about changing living situation as that's when rent goes up. We also have some car decisions to make as we have aSubaru with 130k. So next 15 years look rather precarious. Please donate if you can. We can sure use it!
