Wonderful News (I hope)!

Today someone S. works with suggested that we contact the local University Hospital for help with everything. I did some looking online, and discovered that they have a free program where they basically will do case management and advocate for me to help with all of these damn applications. Additionally, I’ll get to see a doctor right away while my application for medicaid is pending! This is all fabulous news, as I was concerned that at the current rate, I might make it in to see a doctor when it’s time to deliver…

In the ongoing Saga of the Welfare Application, I faxed 14 items to the caseworker there, which hopefully will complete our file, but I’m not holding my breath. She is having a really hard time comprehending that I was NOT employed by the last spa that I worked at, and that as such, I did not make an hourly rate, they do not have records of my average scheduled hours, and I’m not eligible for unemployment. She sent me a form for them to fill out, and they’re not much interested in completing it since, well, I’m not there anymore, and I was NEVER AN EMPLOYEE. I wrote the caseworker a nice letter, where I attempted to explain everything in small words, so I’m hoping she gets it. The thing that really sucks is that I can’t call her. She is based out of an office in upstate NV, and works from home, so in order to get in touch with her, I have to either call and leave a message with the office, then they get the message to her, or I have to fax her a letter. Either way, I have to just hope that she gets the message and calls me back soon. It’s somewhat less than optimal.

So, seven weeks on Wed. Wow. And possibly even prenatal care in the next couple of weeks. This is very comforting.
