Currently what I am trying to do!
I'm not going to sugar coat it. Yesterday afternoon was a disaster. Papa got laid off. Everyone was sad. His boss was crying. It came down to a matter of numbers. Blah Blah Blah
Papa is crushed. He thinks he has failed us, which is ridiculous! He has been my rock through so many things and he had no idea this was coming. Everyone knows the company shot themselves in the foot for the almighty dollar. They will be lost without his knowledge because HE was the only one with a LOT of the necessary information. But, that's not our problem anymore is it?
We have assured the guppies that everything will be fine. And I know in my heart it will be. Papa will find another job and will do everything and anything in his power to take care of us like he always has.
We will go over his severance package later today - we gave ourselves yesterday to just soak in what happened. From what we do know, we have about three months worth of bills completely taken care of.
What IS freaking me out is the fact that they have pulled our insurance away from us tomorrow! So, the Guppies flu shots on Saturday aren't covered. More importantly, G1's cardiology appointment won't be covered either. I put a call into the pediatrician to get her honest opinion as to whether this is an appointment we can temporarily put off or not. We have a long going relationship and I trust her opinion. If she thinks it's something we should do immediately, we will find a way. And, of course almost all our meds are due for refills this weekend. I will most likely pay out of pocket for them (as they are generic) and will deal with trying to get reimbursement from Cobra or whatever if possible later. My big MS injections will have to be put on hold until Papa gets a new job. There isn't any way we can swing the price of that medication. It is what it is.
My blogging *may* be a little spotty over the next couple of weeks as we work this all out. I'm not sure but I figured I should put that out there in case I go MIA once in awhile.
Honestly in my heart I KNOW this is a blessing. Papa hated his job and can move on to bigger and better things that make him happy. We will laugh about this next November - or at the very least be thankful it happened. Right now though, not so much.
Have a good Thursday everyone!
