I have had an outpouring of blessings today that I need to share. As a back story....I was talking about my schedule at work last night and how I would need to work from home a day or two due to Tyler's surgery....and that I would need some time off/work from hospital time in the future as well so of course was asked what for. So I told my LO (loan officer) what was going on.
I am sitting at my desk this morning reconciling a HUD and plugged in to my music...when one of the brothers who owns the company came in with a check. He told me the money was to help with surgery costs and how much he sure hoped everything would go okay. He expressed how much they really appreciated me and my hard work. I was in shock. I tried hard not to tear up....I mean I'm working and all. I think I was able to spit out a thank you a few times out of my shock and attempt to hold back tears. I need to say a real thank you tomorrow now that I'm not blubbering. But what a blessing to work with just truly amazing, kind and caring people. Every single person I work with has so much love and caring in their hearts for every other person there, and this is just a testament to that. I am truly blessed.
And then....as I'm being bored and such I go on to check my status with my CHIP application. There are no new notices, however on the alerts it says I can review my payment info. So I click....and I officially have payment info for CHIP! My boys have health/dental insurance! Woot woot! I haven't gotten the official notice yet or my cards, but I think we are golden! The plan I qualify for has the higher premiums/deductibles and etc but at least it covers something. If nothing else, it will help buffer the cost of the orthodontics and the doc visits. And maybe....hopefully.....I can get some surgery help. It says the max I will have to pay per year for anything medical/dental will be 5% of my income but I'm not sure if that includes surgery as there were millions are asterisks by that phrase as well. And I won't know what they are calculating my yearly income to be until they send me my official notice. BUT. YAY! The boys have health insurance again!!!
I'd say both are small miracles in my mind. Definite blessings. Faith boosters. A way has been provided to help us through. Things will still be a struggle as I try to pay the deductibles and that whole 5% business, but not nearly as unreachable as $15,000 or so.
A way has been provided....we will be okay.
