to much BBC and looking a head
I do not usually ask the girls to do much around the house. Today Amber's chore was to sweep and mop all the floors in the house. No big deal. Then I was walking down the hallway and there stood Amber with buck of bleach water, comet and her rubber gloves. Amber said "Look at this loo. There is stale pee all over it. I have my biological powder and some bleach. It is time to clean the loo!" Oh I need to block the BBC.
Today was the day I had to take my birth certificate down to the public aid office. I must say that my case worker is very nice. There are only two concerns for me. One is that he said you don't look very sick, and this could take a few months to get approved because we are very back logged. Oh pray that all of this goes quickly and smoothly. I can't wait a few months. I will be out of some my meds by the end of the month! I can afford them, but I don't have a doctor to write another prescription. So the cycle will begin again!
Tomorrow we have a interview with a place called regional center. Regional center works with handi cap people. The case worker said that Ryan's case should be open and shut since we have documentation that he is mentally retarded. We are not trying to get money out of the system, or anything like that. We are looking into the future for Ryan. Tomorrow will be step one. We are applying for this form of medical coverage that is not based our income, but rather on Ryan's needs. Once we get approved for this medical he can stay on it for the rest of his life.
A few times over the last few months the subject of Ryan has come up. One time Amber and Nikki looked at me and said "don't worry we will take care of Ryan." Is that fair? Is it fair for the girls and their future husbands to be responsible for Ryan?
These are question that are to soon to answer. So for now we are going to ensure that no matter what happens to Rusty and I Ryan will have all of his medical needs taken care of.
I am going off my spending diet for one day. Nikki just gave me the flyer for the Christmas in a shoe box. This year I am going to pack a box for a little boy. What you do is stuff a shoe box full of stuff and then an organization sends the boxes to Haiti. I have some sot wheels, toothbrush and toothpaste. I even made a small quilt with no batting. I need to go buy some flip flop, and some other stuff that is on the list. I think this is for a good cause, so I am going to stuff a box and pray that it will be a blessing to some little boy.
I need a bath, and to get my body into bed.
