I received an email from my DVR counselor today saying that she has all of the information she needs now (she was waiting on the information from the audiologist) to review my case and make a decision as to if I am entitled to assistance and if so, how much.  My fingers are tightly crossed for at least half the cost of the hearing aids to be covered.  I feel really hopeful about this for some reason…

Other than that, just plugging along with mono and this stupid rib.  It’s been nine weeks since I got sick.  My rib had been getting a bit better, but then my mom came for a visit and we did a little too much laughing, which rally set me back.  I ended up ordering a rib belt to try to keep it more compressed, and it helps, but it still hurts pretty darn bad when I cough or sneeze… or laugh too hard.  Then my meds ran out Friday and stupid me didn’t call in time to get the refill, so I was left without them for two days which meant more pain and the cough coming back.  It was misery but thankfully, I got my refill this morning and the cough has settled down again.  I can’t wait to be over this!
