He is a vet, a former Marine. He has been trying to get his VA medical benefits kicked in.
It's been a year now and still no progress. They keep saying it's takes time. They still cannot locate his records. Now that he desperately needs his medical benefits, he is suffering from Gouty Arthritis.
He went to the ER last night and the doctor who saw him, also suffers from this ailment.
He recommended Lyrica, which he says is very expensive.
Correction - The drug is actually Uloric. My son gave me the wrong name after coming home from the Er.
We have all probably seen the commercial on tv about it and it's many side effects.
My son John is suffering from painful swollen legs and feet. He has been off work for over a week now.
If anyone has any knowledge on how to get some action from the VA, please notify me.
He has no case number as of yet. We have even looked into his state representative as of yesterday
to see if we can expedite things.
It's difficult to understand why our country is not treating our vets better. I know it's been in the news lately and a lot of heads are rolling.
Thanks for hearing me vent and also your support.
I have been busy with a few blogs.... I set a table. so I will soon post it.
I will be visiting my family soon. It will be great to see the little ones.
Both of my sons, daughter and grandchildren all live in the same area, so it will be great to visit with them all.
One of my granddaughters is expecting a little boy the day before Christmas. They have already chosen Logan for his name. He will have his big sister Lilly to play with.
Lilly is taking ballet classes and is quite the princess.
Jacob is our cute little redhead. He is quite the boy!
I hope you are having a great weekend.
