When it POURS

Man Oh Man! What a week. Not only am I exhausted from my family being here (which is a good exhausted) but I am emotionally drained from the week of the stress that has been laid on us. Not only are we officially uninsured as 12:00am but Isaac broke his tibia on Tuesday night. I decided to take him to the ER today since he was still complaining about it and knew that today was my last chance to get him seen with coverage.

I took him into the ER and the doctor knew right away that there was something wrong. I was just hoping they would tell me to "nurse" it for a few days and give him an ace wrap and call it a day. That definitely was not the outcome. Isaac broke his tibia. We now were referred to an Ortho doctor to follow up and see if it needs to be casted, braced or operated on. The doctor said that if its braced and he keeps off of it, we have a great chance of no operation. Isaac just has to be really careful!

We of course face the financial stress of the specialists with Isaac. I'm also in the middle of trying to find a way to get the surgery on the 28th as a self pay, hoping they will bill me.

Because my family is visiting, I honestly have not been processing it all. Each day I think of a new way to support myself and my family but then I get so frustrated at the system and the fact that someone like me can go uninsured. It almost sounds unethical doesn't it?

Anyway, I'm just asking for prayer, prayer, prayer. I know that God will provide, I'm just trying to be still to listen to the best options long term.
