I knew it wasn't gong to be easy. I just have to trust that it will all work out somehow.
I turned in the application, and documents to the County liaison with MD Anderson. She had been trying to reach them last week to ask about the strictness of their 6 months in TX requirement.
She got through this morning, and the person she talked to said I would have to wait until March 20th, when I will have lived here for 6 months, to turn in the application.
My liaison lady, who has worked at her job 18 years, says that sometimes if the situation is serious enough, and there is a month or 2 to go before the 6 mo., they have relented, so she and my docs at Ben Taub, who had forwarded my medical records already, will keep trying. In the meantime the docs will monitor my medical situation.
Next appointment there will be the 14th.
I checked my test results on my "My Heath" page on the county website, and while most of my blood results were positive, including my Phenytoin level, I received a letter telling me I have mild anemia and will have to have a check-up on that. I called and since my next appointment with the county is the 11th it will be brought up then.
My problem is financial, right now.
I have just $165 in my checking and savings combined.
I don't know if I can get a limit increase on my credit card, and am reluctant to cash in my IRA, but may have to survive.
I have my electric bill, credit card, virgin mobile, and renter’s ins. yet to pay this month, not to mention the doc visit co-pays, Cat food in a couple weeks, and more money on my transit Q-card as needed.
Then my rent is due by the 3rd...
I am still expecting a 2nd job interview, following the first one, and stopped by the store, Sunday, to let them know I was still interested.
I called the local office of the Cancer Society of America and they gave me a list of area resources to look into, so I will check them out and learn more.
I am tired, worried, yet hopeful that somehow everything will work itself out.
As I wrote before, this is no time to be freaking out, and so I am doing my best to not do so.
I took the first step towards spreading my writing wings in Houston, with the start of a series on my visit to the Houston Cat Club's 60th Annual Charity Cat Show (My small admission kindly paid by a local friend who also attended.)
I have set up a Facebook Page for my writing efforts (A Mad Macedonian and 2 Opinionated Pussycats.) separate from my personal Facebook. I am also going to attempt remodels of both
