Thankful Thursdays – Please Join Me – 7/2/2020 – #4

If anyone wants to join me and post what they are thankful for, please either create a post on your blog and put the link in the comments or just post in the comments.  You can use my logo in your post. If I get some interest in this post I will see about getting a new logo for it.

I am a few days late for this one since I have been busy with my novel for NaNoWriMo.

I am thankful for:

–A roof over my head

–Food in my belly. (One meal a day is provided by Medicaid. So my food budget has decreased).

–Family, Friends, and Neighbors who care what happens to me.

–My 88-year-old dad is now positive for the virus, but he is asymptomatic and showing no symptoms of the disease so far. Thank God! No update on his status as yet.

–Social Security and Medicare are still intact. (There is talk about there not being money to fund Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid due to this pandemic’s financial drain on society.) I don’t even want to think about what would happen to me if something happens to them. You think you are set and something is bound to happen. 

–I have applied for charity care for my hospital bill from the end of January that was 10 days long. Resent new paperwork and copies and a new signed application. I got a phone call that it had been received and should be processed in the next 30 days. I believe she was telling me it had been approved, but it would take a while to take effect. 

–I have received a back brace from my pain management doctor. It doesn’t fit me well since I am short-waisted and have a large bust. It took a while to figure out how to put it together and to put it on, but my back is actually in more pain from wearing it. Don’t know if I am doing something wrong or it just isn’t going to work due to fit. Not to mention I can’t wear my insulin pump the way I had been. I had to put the infusion set on my thigh now rather than my stomach as the tightness of the back brace cuts off the insulin where it was on my stomach. It also means I have to have a pocket to carry the pump in since I can’t clip it on my waistband like I usually do. It is causing me a lot of trouble and not sure if it is a help or not. It has only been one day so I will find out more as the days go by.

–I still have 2 days of physical therapy left. I am in less pain and able to do the exercises now and they have added some new ones.
