Well I finally got an answer from the insurance on if they were going to cover my medication for the ms. They will pay 50% so that still leaves me to pay over $1,000 a month. Thankfully there is this group called ms lifelines and they have an assistance program, and they automatically put all newly diagnosed ms paitents on the program for the first year. So they put my on it and I'm only going to have to pay $50 a month. I will have to apply for assistance again in a year. And they can't guarantee that I will get it or not, but at least I will have it for a year. So they are sending my meds tomorrow and then I have to wait for a nurse to come and train me on it. I'm just glad that we are getting help with the cost I was really stressing it. God does answer prayers!!!!
Today has been an awful day I have been in so much pain and having a hard time getting around all I have been able to do today is cry. My dad, Kenyon and Parley gave me a blessing today and I know that the lord knows how I feel and that he is there for me but I get so frustrated at times. I feel like I have had so many trials in my life and now this and I can't help but feel sorry for myself and I know I shouldn't. I just keep thinking why me? What do I need to learn from this? I know we have trials to make us stronger and to learn lessons but sometimes I don't understand. I need to work on my faith I guess and stop feeling bad for myself.
I want to let my parents know how much I love them and tell thankyou for always being there to help me especially my mom I LOVE YOU!! And I would be lost without you. And my husband Bo he puts up with so much crap with me I know that all my problems has to wear on him but he never complains. I do the complaining and he says it is what it is and we will deal with it. He is such a wonderful husband and father and I LOVE HIM SOOO MUCH!
I know its been forever since I have posted anything I need to get on the ball. Well for a little up date I went to see a new neuroligist on may 21st and had 4 different MRI's done on the 26th and a spinal tap on the 27th. The DR. called me on June 3rd and told me I have relapse and remitting MS. I was upset, but at the same time I was glad to finally know what was wrong with me. I have been dealing with this for 3 years now. I went back to see the Dr. on the 8th and figured out a treatment plan. I have to give myself injections 3 days a week for the rest of my life. The shots are very expensive its going to cost me 15 thousand a year. Hopefully my insurance will cover some of it. I haven't started the shots yet I have to wait for a nurse to come to my house and train me. The Dr. says I will have to repeat the MRI's and the spinal tap every 6 months for the next 2 years. I'm trying to have a positive attitude about the whole thing but sometimes its hard.
Well the only kid I have home right now is Kaysha. Toby, Boady and Riley are visiting Bob and Leann in Virginia and Dillan and Stevie are visiting their dad in Utah. They all come home July 2nd. The break from kids is nice but at the same time we sure do miss them. They all seem to be having a good time though.
Bo and I try to go to this every year we love it. We get a weekend away from kids and we have tons of fun. We love the old muscle cars. We wish we had tons of money to restore our charger the way we wanted to. As you can tell from the following pictures this police car is my favorite. He is there every year and he halls butt!!! I love the burn outs thats the best.
I'm married to Bo and we have been married for 3 years. Between the 2 of us we have 7 kids. There are 5 boys and 2 girls. They are Tony 19, Toby 16, Boady 14, Riley 12, Dillan 9, Stevie 7, and Kaysha 5.
