Bad News

Mama gotted some furry furry bad news. She gotted letters from the county now terminating her medical plan and her EBT card as of September 1. They say she makes too much money on unemployment to be covered for medicines and to get food! The limit they give is $613 total income a month, and she does make more on unemployment than that, but we can pay the rent and most of the utilities, but not anything else. Her medicines alone total much more than $600 a month without insurants! That means no medicines. No food. Including my food( I have at least a month's worth, don't worry, mama said). We is scared, now. More than ever. Mama's face has been furry furry wet.

And this comes the day before her interview. She really needs to get hired now, and she needs to be as upbeat as possible tomorrow. And she needs them to let her know by next week that she can start right away. Oh, help, efurry one. Please pray furry furry hard.

Mean bad old job to do this to her. It is not fair. My mama is a nice lady. She worked very hard for them and loved her job.

Please help pray hard.

{I am so sorry this blog has been about my drama instead of my sweet lady cat. But thank you all for being here for me. When I get that job and life gets back to normal, brandi will once again be able to just be loved, and take naps, and visit with the squirrels, and not have to worry about her mama and if we will be okay and healthy. This will be a much happier blog, as it was meant to be.}

Brandi, tell your mama she needs to get in touch with those places I gave her links and phone #'s to. Call the doctor, they should have all the forms and stuff and be able to help her fill them out to get her medications free or very low cost. Keep your chin up, we're all praying very hard for her to get a job.

That is absolute BS. Diabetes if one of the most expensive chronic diseases a person can have. My son is diabetic and even with a good copay in effect we spend several thousand a year. Can you confide in your dr and let him/her know what is going on and that is is temporary but you are in a bad situation diabetes-wise? They gets lots of stuff from drug reps and samples from drug companies that they use in the office and give away to new patients and they should be able to help you out with this. It is worth a try. Just be completely honest where you are in this and they shopuld be able to come through for you with a couple months donation of supplies. My heart goes out to you dear and I am praying for a quick resolution to all of this. Am stopping by church this afternoon and will light a candle for you. Lynne

Miss Brandi,

We're sorry things is so tough for your mom bean and we hope they gets better real soon. Please tell her to check the websites of the medsins she takes, sometimes they have a foundation or speshul programs to help peoples who don't have enuff moneys for the medsins. And if yore mom has a speshul kind of sicky, there may be an or-ga-ni-zay-shun to help her. If she wants to email us for help, we can do some web checking.

Hugs & purrs,
Finny & Buddy

Brandi's mom: I'm putting a goodie in the mail tomorrow (Sat). I verified your address with Oreos mom. I figured since we live in the same town it made no sense for me to send it Virginia so she could send it 30 miles down the road! xxxooo
and break a leg at the job interview!! (Figuratively, of course....you don't need broken bones on top of everything else! Lynne

Don't worry about what you end up writing about on this blog. This is your outlet, and if it is the only thing helping you deal with all of the issues around you at the moment, then by all means, vent, scream, kick, cry, and shout it all out right here so that you can do what you need to do when you walk away from the computer.
