News, good or bad...

I received an email today from the Spousal Unit in response to one of mine that instructed him to call Social Security and find out the status of his case.

This is what he said:

"The reviewers office person told me that a decision had been made, could not tell me the decision, and that it had been sent to Chicago on a random quality check on the 15 of August, and that I should get a letter within the next week with all the information."

I read that and felt a ham-handed stirring in my gut. A decision has been made. Good, bad or indifferent.

Send up a little prayer that it's good news. Even if all we get is one month's check, it would make all the difference in the world. It might just give Delfts back some of his dignity and take combative stench from the air inside our home.

I'll keep that in my prayers, Mama. I got my ALJ decision of permanent disability then got told I wasn't eligible for any sort of benefits. 5 years of waiting, hoping and praying shot down the tubes. Don't get your hopes up too high, but maybe you and Delfts will be more fortunate. All the best.

Sorry I haven't been around for a while, but I'm glad I did right now.

Consider my prayers enroute.

You're good people, and I'm proud to be a friend of yours.

Don't know what your "case" is before Social Security. But please note... they ALWAYS say "No!" the first time around.... Then you appeal (at least once).

Not only do you need a post for October, but my top post needs the kind of attention only the BlogMama can provide. It is a sad story, but one that I hope inspires you. Please take a second to read, comment, post, link and trackback.
