Well I have made it through yet another round of "we have no idea what is causing these intestinal infections. 4 hospital stays later and still no one can tell me what it is and what is causing it. I just spend days on end in hospital then they put my in ICU or IMCU and pump me full of what they call the scorch the earth program that basicly kills all bacteria then pump me full of this and mthat to build the good bacteria back up and send me home.
The good news... my social security disabilty denial finally got turned over by the curcit court and ssd has been ordered to pay!!!
Only took 6 years of fighting for it.
You would think they would get the idea that I wasn't going to just give up and let them have their way when I went in one time still hooked up to an IV from the hospital room in my pajamas to file an apeal but no they fought me to the bitter end. Judge didn't send it back for a review he sent them an order to pay.
SO the moral of the story kiddies is, do not give up when they deny you claim fight it as far as it takes!!!
OK I will try and post more often guys.

AL!!!! (((((hugs!)))))
Me and the chicken were wondering when you would show your face in the realm of HW again. Can't believe it took six years for you to get disability.... Seems like they were just trying to wait you out. Glad you got a good judge this time. Maybe you could bake him/her some cookies! turn

Glad to see you on the mend... hope it's for the long term this time.
