COUNT YOUR MANY BLESSINGS

WOW I just have to share the most fabulous story of my life right now! Kasey and I have been trying to get medicaid for Auklin cause Kasey's insurance through work is so expensive. Well they said I could apply for all the way back to Dec and cover Auklins birth- I thought "OF COURSE, PLEASE HELP ME DO THAT" well after months of phone calls and faxes and paper work, I were told they could only go back to Dec 17 because they didnt get all our paper work in time for us to be cleared back to the 9 th... seriously 8 days away from being debt free- So I called our case worker a week ago asking if there is anyway way we can get 8 more days. Well she called this morning and said sorry but there is nothing we can do- Well I was determined, I asked for her supervisors number and she continued to tell me I could try it but there is no way I can get it extended, she continued to tell me she already ran it by 2 supervisors to try an get it for me and it is just not going to happen. So I gave this guy a call told him the whole story and he said he had to investigate. Well I have to say I am thankful my caseworker was not so bright- She forgot to tell me that they never received Kasey's proof of termination... He said she could not have approved me at all without that information. Then he said he had to dig deeper. Well he called back and told me hoe frustrated and confused he was and I politely said, no offense but this is what I have had to deal with all month to try and get approved. I guess I was out with the wrong case worker. And he said.... Bum ba da da... We are just going to approve you to the first of Dec. Sorry for all the confusion! :D My prayers were answered!!! Auklin's birth is free and we are basically out of debt! Pay your tithing people you simply cant afford not to!!!

Yay!!! That is so awesome, I can't believe they actually did that for you! I thought it was weird they did it from the middle of the month, they always do it from the first of the month. Way to be persistant!
