The First Bill Has Arrived

The first bill has arrived.  Luckily, I had my mammogram/ultrasound/biopsy combo done at the end of December, which means the tests are all covered since we had met our deductible.  "Luckily," because the first bill was for $16,000.00.  Yep.  (It sounds better if you hear it as if it's being announced on Jeopardy... "$16,000.00!"

The rest of the bills - starting with the ultrasound, MRI, CT scan, and bone scan I have scheduled for Monday and Tuesday - will, of course, start our new year off gloriously.  We'll probably meet our deductible tomorrow.  

All of that being said, my sister has started a GoFundMe page to help us pay for the medical bills that have already started rolling in:

I'm working on adding a link to it on the side of the blog, so hopefully I can have that up soon.  In the meantime, please share as you see fit.  Cancer is expensive.  

If you're looking for other ways to help, we'd love gift cards for HEB, Target, or Amazon that we can use for food & supplies.  (My food allergies make gifts of actual meals difficult.)  If you click on my profile on the right, you can find my email address there.  (Email if you'd like a mailing address.)

Most important - please pray.  Pray for healing, comfort, peace of mind, and strength for me, the kids, Jamie, and my parents & siblings.  This whole chemo/surgery/radiation/reconstruction thing will probably take 1.5 - 2 years.  We're going to need as much support and prayer as we can get.
