Update

Hello my sweet friends, praying you are all doing well, and are happy. I hope you enjoy the weekend, soaking in the Sonshine. Well, it is time for an update on me, and my lovebug. Health- Lovebug still has no feeling from the waist down, but he is feeling well, and getting stronger. He has another infusion treatment on April 16, and goes back to see his neurologist on May 11. As for my health, my eyes are getting weaker, and the doctor said they will not get better. I go to see my diabetes and thyroid doctor on April 12. At that time, she will either do another ultrasound on my thyroid, or a needle biopsy. Financially, things are really tight right now. Lovebug cannot go back to work until after he sees his doctor on may 11, so right now, the only income we have coming in is $175.74 a week. I am trying to get SSI started due to my eyes, and other health problems. I have an interview with SSI this coming Wednesday, after the interview, I will find out 3-6 weeks later, whether I will be getting a monthly check or not. Please pray that God's will be done in all of this. Our rent is due next Thursday(April1), please pray that we will be able to pay it. I love you all so very much, blessings to you all.

Praying you are able to get your SSI approved and get your rent paid for next month. I know what it's like to struggle financially. I'm playing catch-up with my bills. This might be a dumb question, but I don't remember you saying...you said that Lovebug still doesn't feel anything from the waist down. Can he walk? or is he in a wheelchair. I remember you saying that he was released by his doctor to drive and go back to work on light duty if his employer approved it.

Oh Denise, I know times are very hard right now and I am so sorry for that.....I first am praying that yours and your hubby's health improves and then I pray that your financial needs will be met.
Times are so hard for everyone but you and I both know that all will work out....God's will be done and he will never let us down.....hugs

Hi Denise, sorry for not coming around lately. But you and lovebug are constantly in my prayers. Hang in there, for God will bring you out of this. Sending you big hugs and much love from both Happy and I.

Just read through your previous posts. I know how hard it is struggling with vision problem. Praying for your eyes, Denise. Do not be anxious but take comfort in knowing that God is right there with you.

Continuing to stand in the gap with you sis. Believing in His miraculous healing! In the powerful Name of our Lord and Savior Jesus! May God continue to provide for all of your needs! Take care sister. Love you in Christ.

You are both in my prayers, Denise!

Blessings Denise, Praying for an abundance of blessings and Jehovah Jireh to overflow and meet every need!

You 2 and I live on stretching out about the same amount, but I'm in a 3rd world country, trying to make ends meet on a little less than your total and my expenses should be alot less! But God is faithful. Yet I know how you feel wondering how you can make it stretch and still have enough to cover rent, bills, food, etc. It's a miracle every day! I do know how difficult it is and how hard this all is on Lovebug & you. None of the stress helps your health at all. Just know I am praying from a heart that knows and believing in a God who cares for you and me. God is good. Hold on.
I'm already counting and dividing what I have into how many days I have left until the 3rd of next month, but I just paid my rent & bills this week. So I can praise God that is taken care of...now to stretch and watch my faith increase

(((hugs)))love ya' Peggy
Maybe I should have emailed so you don't need to publish if you don't want to...I'll come back & comment again.

OMGoodness. Saying prayers right now for both of you.
Praying the Lord wraps you in His embrace and that His will be done.

Are there places there that help you with rent and utilities? You should definately qualify. And check into someplace that will help with food. I wish I was there I could help you uncover some resources.
Praying God provides the answers you need. Thanks for always cheering me up.
Have a Blessed Weekend,
Sherry

If you have a local Salvation Army, they will help you pay your utilities. Plus, there is Section 8 you can apply for. I'd apply for it anyway if I were you being you most likely will get SSI due to your eyesight. Just make sure though your landlord accepts Section 8. Social Services also has programs they can hook you up with, too.

You know I'm praying for you and I have my family, friends, and my church family praying for you as well. You're not alone in this. Remember: I'm your prayer warrior!! Love you, sis! God bless you!!!

My sweet sister, I am praying for you both. That hubby will get stronger with each day and be healed, and for your health to improve and healing. Praying for provisions from above and His will be done. Love you so much. My heart goes out to you both. Be well in Jesus Name, Amen!
