The Good, The Sad and the Ugly...

The Good...


Road Trip!  We are off this week to Sacramento, CA so that Miss Irish Dancer Girl can compete in the Western Region Oireachtas (pronounced O-Rock-tus)! This is a regional competition that requires an invitation from your dance instructor to qualify for attending!  All good luck wishes welcome here!


The Sad... 

Chilly lost his health insurance without any warning on Thursday.  As you might imagine this is seriously devastating to our family.  For those of you not familiar with my blog, Chilly (my husband) is terminally ill.  Without insurance, his health care needs are extremely expensive.  He needs very expensive medications and multiple monthly doctor visits (that are only affordable through insurance) to survive...literally. (and I'm not talking only "long term"...he needs it for his short term survival.) I can't really say much more without sobbing all over my computer monitor.  


The Ugly...


All I can say here is that when you are going to directly change the quality or length of someone's life by a choice that you are making, it's nice (not to mention the "right thing to do") to give them a head's up prior to making this decision so that they can have an opportunity to save themselves...While I realize this economy seriously sucks, good old fashioned open communication is always appreciated..."here endeth the lesson..."

(sorry to be so cryptic here...someday I will explain in more detail...)

Dawn, I am going to respond to your email, which literally made me cry, but I just wanted to tell you how upset I am for you.

I am praying for your family.

Good luck to your sweet daughter, and God bless all of you.

Oh dawn...You are ALL in my thoughts and Prayers...this is awful news....I just can not imagine...

blueviolet said...

I can't even imagine how much of an impact that will have and I am so horribly sorry! There should be a law that requires some advance notice!

Jenners said...

Yay for Irish Dancer Girl ... but any joy from that is so overshadowed by the horror of what was done to Chilly. It sounds criminal to me what they did ... I don't care what the bottom line is ... you just don't withdraw that kind of help like that. Thinking of you guys ... I hope you can catch a break with this somehow. Hugs.

Annie said...

Any chance you can appeal? This is just rotten!!!!! Ugh! I am so sorry!

aurora said...

I just don't even know what to say... I am SO sorry...

theUngourmet said...

I can't imagine what you and you're family must be feeling now. I will be praying.

LT said...

Still just kind of speechless here, I cannot believe how unfair that is!! Hugs and prayers to you all!
Good luck Irish Dancer Girl, I know you can do it!!

SHELLY said...

Here is what I say....This is illegal. I grew up in a family business. Time for you to get an attorney and sue them! YOU WILL WIN! I promise!

yonca said...

I'm so sorry that you're going through this.I will pray for you!

Alyssa said...

Oh Dawn that's terrible! =( I'll be thinking of you.

So sorry to have lost touch for so long! My Google Reader got so out of control but I'm now subscribed by email!

I HATE insurance companies. They do not care about the patient one bit, it is all about the $$. While our situation is different here in Ontario, I do feel your pain for having to battle insurance and the government.

Hugs to you!

I am so sorry... you and your family are in my thoughts. I hope they reverse that decision.

Dapoppins said...

Oye Sweety...was there a Why in this? Can they do that...oh my. And hey, while we cry together, we just got notice that the moratorium for our house payments have been canceled, and no, we cant pay the mortgage...woot woot.


Lord. CAN YOU HEAR US NOW?

Mrs4444 said...

Oh, Honey, I'm so sorry to hear that; my heart breaks for you. Wish I could do something to help.

How did the competition go?

The Mrs. said...

That is awful and heartless! Are they kidding?!!! I hope this can be resolved asap.

Eve said...

Oh no. I am so sorry to hear about the insurance! I hope and pray that there is some sort of positive action that can be taken to resolve this!!

babyrocasmama said...

They aren't allowed to do that. Seriously, they aren't. Contact your insurance commissioner for your state. What insurance company is it?

Dawn said...

I'm so sorry. It's not right or fair.

My husband just came in today saying that if his job ends in January (like we are expecting it might) our health ins. will be $2100 a month. It just jumped 27.8% this week. Obama can kiss my a$$!
