Butterfly, you've been missed. PG posted to you recently. The good news is that your husband is being evaluated. The financial end...my brother-in-law went through that. I know my sis was complaining about all the bills. Medicare came just in time, as they had no insurance at all. Since Medicare will take care of most of the expenses, you should ask about charity assistance at the hospital where the transplant will take place. Ask the social worker if she has any suggestions. If all else fails, let your family, friends, and community know. Have a fund raiser...or several! People do this all the time! Go to the local media! You may have to get creative, but it can be done. As a final resort, take out a loan if you have to. One way or another, you need to assure the transplant team that the bills will be paid.
Please talk to your husband about your feelings and encourage him to talk to you. This ordeal could bring you closer, but you have to communicate.
And please remember to take care of yourself. You will need your strength and fortitude in the days and months ahead.
Keep us updated!
Butterfly, it's now your turn to let us support you. Please remember that.
I DON'T appreciate my posts being highjacked!! I know this was April Fool's Day, but on this forum it's not funny.

Butterfly, There is an orginization that helps you to have fundraisers for transplant monies. They have a great reputation and legitimate. You can google for the info or I can try to find them again. I got the info from our center.
