DH & I were hoping 2017 was going to be a better year then 2016. It sure hasn't started out that way!!!
He's not been feeling good since before Christmas right up till today. New Year's Day, I got sick, so never did make the saurkraut & pork to bring good luck. Who felt like eating when your stomach feels like you just got off the tilt a whirl !!! After about 3-4 day, mine settled down, DH is not so lucky!!! His is due to the chemo pill he's on. ]
We get one of his medical bills which I was going to make the last payment on this month, to find out they said we owe $950.00 !!! What the heck ??? That totally upset us both !!! DH just got hold of the insurance to see why it hadn't been paid, after going over his records they said the Dr.s Office gave the wrong code. To have them resubmit it and they'll pay it !!! Thank you God !!! But, I will believe that when I see it.
Last Monday our furnace went out, they couldn't get here till Tuesday afternoon. Thank God we have a gas fireplace & it actually warmed up the whole house ! Except the basement, which we just didn't go down there. DH thought it was just the thermostat. NOT !!! It was the purge motor, so $900 later, it's fixed ! UGH !
Tue. evening we see on one of our local TV. stations, 2 people we knew died., both on the same day. Calling hrs. were the same nights in different cities.
We were suppose to go out of town that AM to visit some friends in PA., but DH got up & was tossing his cookies ! So I had to call & let them know we couldn't come ! We ended up going to just the one calling hrs. for our friend in town that evening.
I had to call DH"s nurse yesterday at the Cleveland Clinic and she tells me she isn't going to be his nurse anymore cause they have so many patients in trial they had to get some new ones, so had to hand off some of their patients to lessen their load. We are so upset !!! We absolutely love her. She's a great nurse, sweet, funny, compassionate & just good !!! We only pray we get somebody as good as her & nice !
Our little Olivia was in a swimming pool Tues. night and smacks her face right into the side of the pool wall ! Went to ER, CT scan showed everything was ok !!! Thank the Lord. She is brused with 2 black eyes & has swelling between the eyes, but it has improved some. Her head was hurting for awhile. She's fine now. OMG
But today the good news about the $900 bill made us happy & that Olivia is OK, even happier !!! ; }
Were hoping maybe this is a start in an upswing of things to come.
We wish each & everyone of you Sparkers a HAPPY & SAFE NEW YEAR !
Love ya', Flutterfli emoticon

    It's good to see the negative being turned into the positive. Keep the chin and head up!

    On the up side, the money saved from the doctor's bill, paid for the furnace repair. It's so difficult to find a little bit of positive in so much negative. Good news that Olivia didn't have any severe head injuries. It's the same here, it never just one thing, but several all at one time.
