Trying to stay positive

April 30th, 2018 at 10:25 am

Well, we are now up to 3 ER visits. Multiple prescriptions. Multiple meals out due to sheer exhaustion. My husband hasn't been able to work this last week. And we found out that he may need surgery for an aneurysm that they happened to find while diagnosing his injury. So I need to come up with $650, which is what my account will be negative now at the end of the month. And a good $9K in savings to support us if he has to have surgery. We have to see a specialist and see when and if surgery is necessary.

I'm not looking for pity and I am not giving excuses. I am so exhausted from not sleeping due to stress and worry and my husband. And I have these great ideas to bake and sell items, but I'm so tired. I guess I will just need to power through it some how. I want to fix this. I want to have a savings. I want to be in control. I really do.

Positive Vibes Only.

    It's so good that you know what you want. You will get there! For now take care of you and your husband. Sending prayers!

    Sorry to hear of the troubles. I’ve been there (husband’s cancer diagnosis two years ago). You need to have a plan for meals and stop eating out. Use your crockpot and freeze meals. Pack your snacks and drink for medical appointments. I had some support with meals and I had four kids at home. I admit that my kids ate cereal some nights for dinner. And we have insurance and are still paying two years later. And each scan is still $1,000 to $2,500 dollars depending when in the year and if it’s a CAT or PET scan. What you do now to save money will help you in the long-run. Peace!

    You have my hopes and prayers for a complete and speedy recovery for your husband as well as strength and endurance for you.

    Thank you; he’s recovered now but had to deal a blood clot after surgery. Then post-diagnostic scans every three months, then six months. Last scan came back with a lung nodule, then needed the advanced scan. Thankfully it is normal and non-cancerous. We never had a large EF, still don’t and we’ve been a single income family of six. I hope that your hubby does well and you can plan for surgery.

    You have my sympathies for you and your husband and best wishes for recovery. Is this aneurysm why he was injured?

    I will say a prayer for God's comfort and strength. You will get through this. You have already shown this group how strong you are

    Very sorry for your troubles. Hopefully things will work out for you and your hubby and all the treatment will be successful. I will pray for good health.

    This is just a stumbling block for you -- you will get caught up on your bills and eventually get some savings. You are strong and you have a goal in mind.
