I am recovering with alot of therapy and help from alot of people. I passed my driving evaluation and can now start to drive again. I am still on 13 meds (Aprox.$1025.00/month) for now, I hope they will be starting next month to cut back on the 2 alzhiemers medications( which are quite expensive) and have me off of those 2 by October.
I am also still waiting on the heart catherization (which they can not do for 2 months following a stroke or major trauma) the Heart surgeon will be doing in Sept. , also hopefully what ever they have to do to my heart at that time they will also be able to take me off the extended release nitroglycerine I am currently taking (it is also quite expensive).
So for now we are taking it 1 day at a time and hoping all will work out in the end to a full recovery!
Also we do have some insurance but we have no income at this time and the insurance has not come close to touching the mounding bills which are expected to rise over $35,000.00 over the next few months which is enough to give anybody a heart attack! :shock:
Although we continue to struggle, I can say that it has softened the blow when we have friends like you Roy and all the Nachi family that has helped us out. At least this way we have been able to put a little food on the table for us and our 2 children!
If I can give any advice it would be:
"ATTENTION ALL HOME INSPECTORS BUY MAJOR MEDICAL AND DISABILITY INSURANCE!"
AND remember to always have a yearly health checkup and go to the doctor as soon as you feel somthing is wrong, it does not matter how old you are as, I am only 43 and thought I was to young for a stroke but it can happen to anyone!
I hope that answered all your questions Roy?
Thanks to all,
