    replied to What to do when your health fails you?
    Again, I will say I have never regretted removing my gallbladder because I have always had excellent blood tests -before my most recent surgery, my doctors have always marveled at my bloodwork for hdl, triglycerides,etc. -they have told me I have good "genes"(i.e. for lab results). In other...

    Well, when I was quite young (and in college,in fact ) I was diagnosed with two gallstones and had a laparoscopic gallbladder removal and never had any side effects or complications whatsoever. I don't recall having any diagnosis of fatty liver. Maybe you can have a diseased gallbladder with out the...

    replied to Significant pay increase
    Moses911, in our case my husband was laid off in January 2019, collected severance pay for three and a half months until the end of April, started work at a another company towards the end of February, and got his first check near the middle of March , thereby collecting "double pay" for about...

    Well, in our case the furnace is still working, but we bought one new space heater and already had one as a backup from a while back (i.e.before BK13). We finally got the swamp cooler covered today and were told a new one would cost $4200 (We think the motor is about to go! ) The sprinklers aren't...

    Scottowl, I hope your ultrasound went well and nothing ominous was discovered.Keep us posted!
    You are so right about our roller coaster BK13 ride! It has been more than three and a half years of uncertainty and near-constant and unending stress -as some one once said, "it's always something!"...

  • Franco, leaving all politics aside, I hope the promised vaccines will eventually eradicate this horrid Coronavirus for good and allow life to return to a semblance of near-normal, ensuring that your commissioned job will go on and see you through this BK13.
    Carmella, I hope you can get that...

    Scottowl, first I'd like to say, I'm so sorry you have to face these medical issues so early in your BK13! I hope your very reasonable fears aren't realized and that you are able to continue working so you can finish this most unpleasant of all worst case financial scenarios.
    Every time I read...

  • @flashoflight, yes, it is possible to get a loan from my husband's current company's 401k. It may be just enough. My husband is also looking into a rollover from the old company 401k to the new. At present the new 401K is about 40% the value of the old company 401k. Notably, my husband contributed to...

  • Thanks Carmella! We try to leave the attorney out of it as much as possible. He would likely charge for what ever "advise" he would dispense. We are thinking space heaters would may be get us by for a while - if the pipes did freeze, well, then the trustee would have to be notified. Maybe...

  • Thanks Carmella!
    Colorado has a truly schizophrenic climate - one day it's a 90 + the next almost zero! The winter can be very cold usually not for long but there have been periods of extended freezes that can last a week or more. It is just as extreme in the summer (mostly with out any rain!)...

    Surgery+ Possible Near future Furnace Replacement

    Well, last week I came splendidly through a three hour surgery few women look forward to with anything but dread. My ovaries are intact and my speaking (and singing ) voice is undamaged from the full anesthesia tube, and our total bill will probably be a little more than 2K. We have a payment plan in...
