Back to the HA Dr

Well I have made a follow up appt with the hearing aid dr on Dec 5th to find out the sticker shock for the 2 hearing aids I need. I really don't know how we are going to pay for them, but I guess we'll try to figure something out. I may only get 1 for my really bad ear and go from there until its paid off and then get the other one.

I am so frustrated with the government and insurance companies. All of these places to do grants, supply hearing aids or help cover the ha's are for kids, elderly or low income people. So if you are like me just middle class America and can't afford to pay for it you are screwed. Lovely. I can't believe theres not a foundation out there to help EVERYONE in need regardless if they are low income or whatever.

I don't live extravagantly, we do not live in a fancy large house or drive new expensive cars but yet we can't afford the hearing aids. We have 2 kids, and I stay home in order to be with my kids. If I had the way and time I would start a foundation that helps people get hearing aids without the "typical" rules that apply every where else.

I'll be sure to post when I find out the results of the cost.

November Has Arrived!

I guess I should say that Fall/Winter weather anyways! We had such a record breaking heat record this past summer that went on thru most of Oct that I am having a time adjusting to this um Fall weather? I guess you could say it's Fall but it's feeling more Winter like. The high today was supposed to be around 54, not sure it got there or not. It was breezy all day and quite cool out, I believe it's gonna be in the umm high 20's tonight?? Does that sound like Fall in the South? LOL I think not!

So Turkey Day is around the bend and I have no clue what we are going to do. I am to stressed right now trying to figure a way to come up with the $$ to cover my hearing aids. I think we are going to have to take a loan out and go that route. :( I am not looking forward to that, been putting off calling the H/A dr back and finding out the next step.

Hailey was sick over the weekend and gosh on Sun night she went to bed at 10 pm and slept til Noon and then ate 2 pieces of toast and drifted to sleep at the table lol. She then slept on the couch til 3. I was in complete utter shock! She's never slept that much even when she was sick prior. I am guessing it was just a stomach bug, she's all better and typical toddler today.

Jess is doing well in school, got her report card a few weeks ago. She had all A's and 1 B, so not to terrible. Oh and her 3rd tooth came out this past Friday night while we were at dinner no less. She's been complaining and complaining how it hurt and hubby even tried to pull it on Thurs night. He couldn't get a tight enough grip though, but she bit into a ROLL and it came out LOL. He must have gotten it pretty dang loose though!

Well that's about it in a nutshell for now, will be back soon with more!
