Progress? Maybe....

Glenn felt much better yesterday so we went ahead with our plan that we had the day before. We timed how long it takes to G'ville from where we will be moving to, and it takes at least 30 minutes less than where we currently live. I'm really not sure if we accomplished anything at the VA  clinic.. It's as "easy" to navigate as medicaide, maybe worse. They had us literally going in circles and we finally gave up. Hopefully Glenn will get an appointment at the VA clinic here in Jax soon and he can start getting his meds from there. The way things are set up with medicaide for him right now, we have to pay total price for his meds. That's just not possible.
Glenn called the oncology Dr. there in G'ville and FINALLY got him on the phone. He is going to work with us to get the treatment Glenn needs to have and get it covered by medicaide. We went over to that hospital and talked to the financial person there and she was extremely helpful. So we are hoping his treatment will get going again soon. Yeaaaa!!!!!
Last night after we got home I still had enough energy to make some pizzelles. I wanted to make them for the sweet ladies in my Mah Jongg group today. They have been so supportive with all the treatment, etc. I can't thank them enough for all they've done for us. They are the biggest reason I'll miss living here. There are many nice, fancy, flashy amenities here but they mean nothing compared to the wonderful, thoughtful people here. God has been so gracious to let us live here for the past two years at a point in our lives when we have needed to lean on people, and these people, along with our family at church, have been the exact prescription for our needs.

Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves have received from God. 2Cor. 1: 3-4
