Okay I got my letter about being approved Saturday. Today despite my pain I drove to the SS office with all my paperwork because July 31 I have to move- no staying since I no longer attend school here. I will get a direct deposit within 2 weeks of at least a portion of my back pay. So this is good news. Really really good news. The kind that makes you want to jump up and down and scream with happiness. Me- I hurt too much. I am so darned bruised  sad Plus my stitches would pull  nono   But here is my happy dance:

Way to go redrose!  It must be a tremendous relief.  Make sure that the transfer info you gave SS is correct.  My bozo bank changed the routing number while I was sick and if they sent a notice I never got it.  Of course, SS tried to send it and it bounced back.  After calling them the money was transferred quickly.
 
Have a much better and relaxing 4th.

Thank you so much everyone. I was just glad I got such a nice guy. The real irony is his wife was recently dxed with lupus so it may be why he was so nice. He even asked if a good rheumy existed in the area- apparently hers isn't treating her well. I gave him the name of mine. When he asked what to expect I gave him a little break down of what happened to me but told him everyone is different and that the faster treatment begins the more likely things are to go well. I also recommended he buy/read The Lupus Book by Dr. Wallace. It was actually very nice to have someone who knew how difficult this can be. He has to key in by hand over 2 years of income information so it may take him a while. He also has to verify two things with his supervisor. But otherwise things look good. I was way prepared. I made sure I had copies at home of everything I took so he could keep all he needed to. I have my surgical follow up tomorrow morning. The biggest part of my pain is the bruising all the way around my sides and back. The ones on my breasts are healing quickly but the others are so slow to heal I went and got some Vitamin K cream because K is what the body needs to process the blood from the bruises so the areas can heal. Apparently you cannot get enough by eating it or even with a supplement directly to the area so apply cream with Vitamin K directly gives the body what it needs via absorbtion directly where it is needed. I figure anything because I am still black and blue. I look like I have been caned or something according to my husband. I can't see most of it but I can sure feel it. The rest is just achy. Occassionally my stitches will pull if I move wrong. But other than that I seem to be doing okay. I am so glad too. I would have been better today but no pain meds when I have to drive. So I got all the pain nothing to ease it at all. Tonight I am taking full advantage of the medications available to me so that tomorrow I will not be over tired and maybe I will have less pain. I really like how much better my back and shoulder feel from the old pain though- it is easy to tell a big improvement already. So I guess this was more than worth it. But I think I may need a quick dose pack of steroids because I am having a mild flare up. I will ask tomorrow if she will write one. It will help speed my recovery if we can knock it out fast.
