Still no change in SSI status, and on the way to the hospital
As of right now, Terry's appeal for SSI disability still has not been heard, and he still has no medical insurance of any kind. I am taking him to the emergency room because he needs blood work in order to get the medications he needs, and even with donations we can't afford everything he needs. This will be yet another hospital bill that simply cannot be paid unless he receives Medicaid or Medicare. He may also need paracentesis on this visit, a procedure for draining fluid from the abdominal cavity.
