Medical Status: Upgraded!

I got medical.

Until at least 2007 when they review my case.

I'm so happy right now.

Insurance Situation

A few days ago, my mom called the lady who was adjudicating my case for health insurance. My mom told her that it is currently a critical situation, because I was getting sores and bruises again. The woman wrote that down on my file.

We called yesterday to see if anything had changed, but there was no answer, so we left a message.

She returned our call today, and she wasn't allowed to tell us if it looked good or not, she did say that she made a note that it was currently a critical situation on the file and that shoud certainly help. The file is being sent out today to get accepted, or denied. We should find out by next week.

I'm excited and scared at the same time. If it happens, god wow.. I don't have to really worry about it for awhile.. But if it doesn't.. What the fuck else am I going to do?

Status Update

So I have a sore in my mouth, and have had it for a few days. For those of you that don't know, a sore in my mouth basically signifies me that my white blood cells are low. It's like an open sore around the inside of my mouth. It hurts really bad to eat, talk, move my lips, anything. Then last night, Matt and I were drinking around and he accidentally elbowing me in my mouth, causing my tooth to go into my bottom lip and it to bleed. So my mouth is all screwed up. :P

In addition to my mouth sore, I've been feeling tired and headachey for quite some time. I've also begun bruising again (caused probably by my platelets being low.) I've been short of breath and weak, (probably caused by my anemia.). Also - for those of you that don't know (how could you not?:P it's like the number one topic of conversation in my LJ.) I don't currently have health insurance, and it is a huge, huge, huge cause of the stress in my life right now.

Today, I came home from class feeling tired and having a headache, so my mom gave me a shot of Neupogen (a drug that causes my bone marrow to produce my neutrophils (white blood cells) more rapidly.) The shot kind of messed me up for the remainder of the day. I laid down at 1, and slept/laid there for about 3 hours.. Then I woke up and went to meet Matt at the mall, then we went to his house and laid down until 8:30, then I went back home. My back hurts, I have a headache, my mouth still hurts, and my body is tired. I don't want to go to bed yet, because I'm sick of feeling decrepit and tired.
