So... we weren't able to sort out insurance in time for the established surgery date.
Yeah... there's lots to be said about that, none of it good.
It IS being sorted out, it WILL be authorized, and I will be on everyone's case until it is. Once it's authorized we'll get a new date.
Unless we can pay the $40,760 to the hospital before the surgery, which seems highly unlikely.
The okay news is that while Chris is in pain and the lymphedema is really bad, it doesn't seem to be getting worse. We still need to get him a pool and a hot tub for hydrotherapy and exercise equipment, and that's a high priority in order to prevent further muscle loss.
The good news is Chris most likely has a contract that will work with his appointments and time off for surgery and radiation so maybe we can start digging out of this whole.
The bad is we can't make rent and we need to wait even longer for surgery.
But there's a few lights at the end of the tunnel at least.
So we still need help, rather desperately. Anything would help.
I've still got a GoFundMe set up, and PayPal to firstname.lastname@example.org always works.
