Prompt for the Day: “One More Time”

The people at the Daily Post group of Word Press submitted the following prompt to get our writing engines primed for the day “One More Time“.  They also included a single question “If you were able to relive one day from the last 12 months, which day would it be — and why?”

Got FREEDOM back

Would have to be the day that the gentlemen from the Ramps.org finished my wheelchair ramp from the back yard gate to our back door of our house!  Now I could finally come and go as often as I wanted or needed to.  They gave me my freedom back that day.

The guys were very polite and friendly.  Let them know what day I had one of my infusions scheduled for, so that they would have a way my husband could get me over the construction site to make my appointment.  Had to promise I wouldn’t use it without help until I signed the paperwork that the project was fully completed.  They picked up every single scrap of wood, nails, screws, and other trash just as rain started to pour down!  As much as I wanted to, did not go out and test the ramp out until the next day (not raining).  Was able to successfully navigate out the back door down the wooden walk way they had built all by myself! Reached the driveway of our detached garage needing absolutely no help from anyone.

Please help fight my disease

The medicine my neurologist has me on for my multiple sclerosis is called Tysabri.  Trying to find the actual cost on the internet is impossible.  I remember when I first started on it , the amount the facility tried charging me was well over $2500.  There was no way my husband and I could afford that every 28 days!  Biogen (manufacturing drug company) has been helping us with some of the cost of the drug, but will not continue indefinitely.  So I have started a Go Fund Me campaign.  To contribute to it click on the following link: https://www.gofundme.com/zfabhdes

All help will be greatly appreciated.   Thank you for your generosity!

Great day!

My husband replaced my sub pubic catheter yesterday.   It wasn’t letting urine flow through it like normal.  Been feeling a little ill for a couple of days.  He removed it to discover that the part that was inside my body had started to crystallize again.

Got up this morning to find that my right ankle / foot which had been swollen for several days was back to normal.  It hadn’t hurt or anything, so I wasn’t too worried about it.  Think the swelling was caused by a weather front that moved through over night.

Called and placed order with Merwin Home Medical for two replacement catheters.   Just wish their web site still enabled me to place order directly from the web page.  Let the lady know that it was not a rush situation, since I have one spare left in the house.  Just do not like to risk not having a spare on hand.

Got a call from the gentleman who will be supervising the build of my wheelchair ramp letting me know he would be dropping supplies off in our back yard for my ramp it to built next week!  I was just hoping to have a ramp up before thje end of July.  That way we wouldn’t have to deal with surviving another winter ramp less.  He works for a company called Tree Trust.  Link to Tree Trust web site   In his spare time, he donates hours to an organization whose goal is to create access for everyone  link to organization that creates access to everyone.

He told me that my records were processed resulting in the cost of my ramp to bee free!  Just had to supply the ramp builders with our tax records for the past two years along with pay stubs for the past six months.  I have no problem with doing a little research on  the computer for others.  Have even less of a problem when the research benefits me or my husband!

Can’t wait until next week gets here and they get started.  From the weather forecast I watched this morning, think it will be rained out unfortunately.  But at least I know it will be built!
