On Friday morning I take Jessica to see her doctor, just to make certain that everything is ok. Her blood sugar levels are still too high, so I think that we have to adjust her insulin. That's ok, we knew that this could happen. Once she started gaining her weight back and being more active, she probably wasn't getting enough. I am hopeful that her doctor will tell us that she has gained back even more weight, and that she is out of the woods. She must have gained back SOME weight, because she is now wearing 'fat' jeans.

Size one.

I swear, I still have a hard time talking about it. I haven't been this scared since she was 1st diagnosed, 9+ years ago.

Next week Shawn and I are going to the Tribunal (court for landlord tenant issues). I think that this is the end of the line for us. We owe too much money. We will probably be given about 2 weeks to move. I am scared shitless.

The good news is that our debt is now PAID to Shawns boss. Whoo Hoo! Of course, now there is a work slow down, and he will be scrounging for work over the winter. Keep your fingers crossed that it all works out, would you? If you are the praying kind, I'll some more of those too. You all did such a wonderful job with Jessie last week.

I got word back about my disability, too. I was turned down. I am so disappointed, but I knew that this would happen. I was warned by everyone that most people are turned down the 1st time that they apply. I will fight it, and keep trying. I am not looking for money, just the health benefits. That's all. I just want to be healthy enough to work. That's all. I want to be a part of the 'real' world again.

So, that's it. That's what has been on my mind for the past few days. I keep thinking that things have to get better.
They HAVE to. We have been in a slump for a year. Our time to shine must be right around the corner.
Has to be :)

Just catching up... That sounds like some good news about Jessie. So glad that worked out. Can't help with the costumes, though, since I hate fancy dress! Dogs love to escape, right?!

how'd the appointment go?
I don't even know how to comment on the rest...

Jessie didn't gain any weight. She hasn't lost any, either, so that is a bonus. Her hair is growing back,and she LOOKS healthier.
Her insulin was adjusted, again, and I have to take her back in another week. It'll be like this until she is out of the woods.
I feel good about it, though. It seems as though she is on the right track :)

Good luck & keep up the good thoughts!

You'll be in my thoughts and prayers. Things will get better.

I'll keep you and your family in my prayers, Biddie! Good to hear the news about Jessie not losing weight. Once the insulin gets leveled out, she should start to rebound faster.

We lived on the corner of Elm Ridge Drive (one street over from Westmount) and Queens Blvd. It was on the bus route and the buses just roared up and down that street. She had no fear then. Now she's a regular 'fraidy cat!

I have a good feeling that things will turn out right. I'm sending good vibrations your way. {{{{{

I got turned down by insurance first time. Great West Life is notorious for that. I fought like hell which made me even more stressed out than I already was. They finally did accept my claim and also gave me back pay.

Good luck with those insurance buggers. Keep in mind they do not care about you and it's not personal. They'll say and do whatever they can to not pay. So you do the same right back at them.

Fingers are crossed for you over here too!

Please know that we are here praying for you and your family. Something will work out I am sure. Hang in there and keep the faith. I will pray hard that something works out somehow.
