Looks Like Hubby's Cancer Has Started Growing Again!

It has ben a while since I last wrote anything on my blog and I am sorry. There has been a lot going on since the last time also.

Hubby lost his insurance when it went to over $800 a month where he used to work which would have been half of what he drew in retirement and Social Security. We still owe on the house and car so there was no way that we could keep carrying the insurance, and they would have been dropping us from the plan in four months anyway so it seemed useless to struggle to try and pay for it anymore.

We were able to get him help through the VA center though because he had been in the army from 1972 to 1974, and he does not have to pay anything to see the doctor, and his prescriptions are just $8.00.

I was not able to get any help with my medical care though until just a few days ago which cost us so much for my prescriptions and medical care that it looks like we may be itemizing next year. I know that I have spent $1100 just on prescriptions in the last three months. I was finally able to get help through the Cherokee Healthcare Clinic that is just a few minutes away from our house where I could be seen by the doctor and pay for my prescriptions on a sliding scale.

But then I procrastinate on why I decided to write on this blog at 2:00 AM instead of sleeping.

We took hubby in to Johnson City to have a Pet Scan, and his cancer doctor from there called me Friday saying that hubby's cancer had started growing again, and that he wanted him to go back on chemotherapy. At the moment hubby is saying no to taking chemo again that he would rather just get things over with though. I don't know if I can get him to change his mind, and I am not sure that I should argue with him at this point. I need to talk to someone much wiser then I am, and I plan to take care of this before going to sleep tonight.

I will try to write more later.
