We are up to 8 tickets out of 100 having been sold so far in the first 6 days of the raffle (so the amount is presently at $1,025.68 of the $12,500.00 goal).
For those people who have purchased tickets, please spread the news (the only way the raffle works is that all 100 tickets get sold). 92 more tickets to go. =)
We went to Social Security yesterday to go over Travis' hours at Walmart. Apparently, his income from Walmart is subsidized... which allows him to earn more money. We just have to figure out the % of the subsidy so we'll know just how many hours he can work. This threw us for a loop, but Social Security now has enough information in which to make a decision (hopefully within the next 3 to 5 months)..... depending on the government shutdown of course.
We also continued the effort for Social Security to re-open Penny's claim for Social Security Disability. We are trying to bypass "Res Judicata" as Social Security did not have all of her medical records and didn't have enough info to make their decision in 2008 (and since she did not have an Attorney then, I have to make it a priority to find a Attorney and fast to open that slim door).
I am going to North Chicago tomorrow for my Rheumatologist and Urologist consults. Keeping my fingers and toes crossed that they ultimately find the medical problem and come up with a plan to address it (and resolve it). I remain hopeful that my medical issues are not insurmountable.
