Difficult Sunday Afternoon

We drove up to Toronto to see a family that had been members of our church in Hong Kong. Dianna missed a step, fell, and broke her left ankle and cracked a bone in her right ankle. The left one will require surgery, the right, a boot. Medicare does not cover in Canada. We are trying to get her back to Houston, TX to her surgeon. With the RV in Niagara Falls, we have major logistic problems. Fatigue abounds at this writing. We were in emergency from 5:00 PM to midnight. She is still there overnight.

Prayers for her comfort (lots of pain) and wisdom for me would be appreciated.

Stiles that is terrible news. I can just imagine what you are going through. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and Dianna. Hopefully, you can get Dianna back to Houston for surgery very soon.

Perhaps a MOCTAPer in the Buffalo/Niagara Falls area would be able to assist you securing your Monty and get you to the airport.

I'm new to Medicare. I didn't realize Medicare would not cover medical expenses out of the country. That is just not right.

Stiles: Which side of the border is the RV? I am about 150 miles east of Toronto. Yesterday I was 30 miles east as we went looking at new coaches. I will PM you my phone number. If you have to leave the RV let me know and maybe we can work something out.
Don & Annie: We have the same situation in Canada. We have to take out "Out of Country insurance" when we head to Tx. for the 5 mos. we are there. Free health care at home though.

Thoughts and prayers are going up for you here in the mountains of WV. Logistics of traveling when we have medical problems can be a nightmare. I am not yet old enouch for medicare so I am covered under Tri-Care Prime from Tom's military retirement. We were planning on heading south around mid October but are today packing things up here at the summer place. I have run into a few minor complications and need to get back to my doctors in FL. Seems if you have surgery in FL, the WV, MD and VA doctors do not want to help. Everyone we call says go to the ER and we all know what a nightmare that can be. Even if you do go to the emergency room they just tell you to go see your regular doctor. So we are heading to get the Monty out of storage tomorrow and will be driving south on Thursday. I have a doctors appointment in Orlando area on Monday. So Stiles, we certainly can sympathize with you and will definitely keep you in prayer. Our God is an awesome God and this will all have to rest in his hands. Give Diana a hug for all of us.

Stiles,

In times of stress, we turn to our friends, we send forth hugs and best wishes.

Let me ask you a question, do you have any of that medical coverage from like Good Sam, etc. Where they drag your unit home for you, and fly Dianna home?? It is an extra policy they offer. I ask only to jog your memory during such a stressful and exhausting time, maybe you forgot you had it. I know I might. I only ask this in the best of friendship and caring, I am saying this all wrong, but I know you "get" it.

Please keep us posted as to how you guys are doing, you will be in our prayers.

Stiles and Dianna, our prayers are with you hoping for pain relief for Dianna and wisdom and strength for Stiles.
Joyce we will add you to the strength list also. Certainly hope everything turns out okay with your Doctor visit.
This insurance thing is a difficult part of full timing. We can't go on new insurance until Dec. 1 when Ed is elgible for Medicare and we don't think our Calif. insurance would cover us since we have become residents of SD. So for the next 2 months we walk on egg shells.
Happy trails...........................

Stiles, So very sorry to hear of Diannas fall and your problems. As has been said, our God is an awesome God and He will see you through this. Our prayers are with you, but I am confident He will see you through this.

PS: I know this is a little late for you but there is an organization that offers assistance just as you require. I attended one of their orientations but have not joined myself. You can read more about them at http://www.masavfw.com/index.php. This is information only and I do not have any connection to these folks.
