Well i know I have not been on here for a long time. I have been busy. First is first I went last monday for what I thought was my last chemo treatment but the doc said no you have one more. I just wanted to cry. But whats one more. And I finally got insurance. I applied for Access Medicare) I call and the man was so mean to me. He told me I was not accepted and I started to cry and told him how I really needed insurance so I could get my chemo and he just kept blabbing saying how I did not get it. Then he asked me if I had any Medical bills and I told him I did and how much. He said he would talk to someone and call me back. Would'nt you know he called me 2 hours later and said he got me insurance they felt with my bills and medical condition I was medicall needy. (lol ya think) And he said how sorry he was for his attitude that they are swamped with work and not enough of workers. And he wants to try to get disablity for me. I am just happy I got insurance. And now I have home nurses that come to the house. They come in on mondays and hook me to my pump and wed unplug and thursday for the shot and monday just to check on me. They are going to do all my blood work for me also. Now I can let my poor dad rest,( he was the one who took me to all my appointments.) So on the 21 will be my last treatment.Yeah I made it.. I have a cat scan set up at the end on March. (praying for good new on that) I have been reading what everyone has been posting. And praying for you all. Cancer is really hard to deal with all around.

    I Remember.....
    ...when you first started your treatments - "you've come a long way, baby!"

    Here's hoping that the scan is clear and I'm glad good fortune shined on you and you got insurance - I keep tellin' my wife, "a woman's tears..." they can do something to a person. I'm sure after he thought about it, he felt badly. The whole system is overloaded so you run into mean people sometimes, especially with insurance. I had a go with mine and they make it extra difficult.

    so glad that you have insurance!
    The man you talked with is probably so unhappy with his life and his job that he takes it out on his clients! Just imagine telling people bad news all the time! Sorry that you had to go thru that bit of stress. Will be thinking of you at the end of the month and sending good positive thoughts for a clean scan.
