Taking a Step at a Time

In a perfect world, the person whose fault it was would have an insurance company that would gather up all of the medical bills, pay them, and you would have no stress from the incident. As we all know, this is not a perfect world as we were both made aware of two weeks after the accident. No one had called us, sent us anything in the mail, etc. We both had to call and chase down the representative in order to find out what we were suppose to do. Instead of a person, we would get voice mail. Frustration and aggravation has really been a strong suit in this situation. Now the medical bills are rolling in and rolling right onto our doorsteps. In order for us to keep them out of collections, we have to pay while the insurance company drags its feet. Not fair. How do you get blood from a turnip? MORE Stress.

We are both still suffering severe pain and having to see doctors for this incident. With the stress being so bad, my lupus has flared repeatedly causing fever after fever, joint swelling, and just plain sickness. I had to move my lupus appointment up because I just couldn't stand the fevers anymore. The trauma of the accident set off flares. Pain from the accident keeps me awake. It is a cycle. Add worry about the incoming bills we shouldn't have to be concerned about in the first place because it was the other guy's fault.

I'm asking for your prayers....please pray for Sandy and myself and that this situation will be rectified, bills paid and stress gone. Pray for healing. Pray for ways for us to meet the bills until all of this is said and done.

I ask for a special prayer for Sandy. Last week her dad died. He had been sick for awhile, but had still been active. He had a slight heart attack, was taken to the ER, admitted to the hospital. The cardiologist did a heart cath to insert a stent when he threw a blood clot. As you know when someone passes, life becomes chaotic until everyone goes home. It is the quiet after the storm that is the hardest time of all. Please remember her and her family as they grieve the loss of their father.
