update on me - great news!!!

Hello ladies. I haven?t been here for a while as life got crazy, but I wanted to update you all.

In the fall we met with Rob?s oncologist and he is clear of the cancer. Yay!!!! He isn?t going to be able to go back to work though. (I am ok with this as long as disability comes through.) Then in November he was at the Cancer Clinic for an appointment and his crutch broke and he fell and broke his leg. :banghead: The same bone that he had cancer in. I will say that if you are going to break yourself, do it at the hospital! We have never had such fast care before! But it did put him back about 6 weeks of physio. He has just been able to start again.

The best thing happened today though! We got a call from his insurance and they are going to cover 90% of the costs of a scooter, crutches and a few other things. Yay!!!! And then we got another call that the appeal for his long term disability (that was denied last summer) was approved and we will get his benefits and back pay till LAST JUNE!!!!

I don?t know what to do with myself, I am so happy. I never in a million years thought that it would go through. I am shaky from loss of stress!


Things are looking up. Life is getting better. Yay!
