I just got my approval letter from disability today. They are going all the way back to the day of my accident so I will be getting Medicare pretty soon too! I started to write that you have no idea how good this feels but yes, you do know! It took 4 years of fighting to get it but I finally did. Now I can buy a new house and get out of this swamp. It means I will finally be able to get a place and not have to worry about a landlord.
Also, over the weekend this couple that we are really great friends with, in fact we are all so close we think of each other as family, came over to visit. Kieth and his fiance are getting together with another guy we know and they are building us a tryke! They know that neither one of us will ever be able to hold up, let alone ride a regular motorcycle again so they are going to build us one! My first motorcycle ride after my wreck was with Kieth. He is using the front end and frame from his bike, since it was the first one I had been on, for the tryke. They have a nice cushy seat ordered for me so my hips won't get bounced all around. After all the bad times the last few years, some things are finally starting to come together for us.
To everyone that is still fighting, don't give up. You will win this fight. It just seems to take forever but we are all here pulling for you!
