Bed rest :(

I haven't been on here much lately.. but we've had a lot going on. Long story short my husband was hurt pretty badly at work and then fired over trying to get worker's comp. So we are dealing with a lawyer now He has two bulging disks and sciatica and isn't allowed to do anything. The problem is I've been having major contractions and as of yesterday went to the hospital. I've been put on partial bed rest, I'm not really supposed to do anything but it isn't total bedrest yet. I'm going to the doctor on Monday or Tuesday and he will check me more thoroughly. I'm not supposed to do anything either, so I'm not sure how that works. On top of that I was already not working (due to the contractions, I quit in January but I am still in school full time) and now my husband can't work. Not sure how we are supposed to swing that. So yeah.. it's been pretty rough for us lately and doesn't look like it is going to get better!! My husband can't even get his back problems taken care of until something gets done about his workers comp. because we don't have insurance (and he doesn't qualify for medicaid here.)

I'm so sorry! I hope that you at least have family or good friends nearby to help out. I can't even imagine the logistical challenges of getting through the day with both of you out of commission.

Re: Bed rest :(

Would he qualify for social security disability? If he's not allowed to work per doctor's orders that should allow him to be able to get at least temporary disability (which would make him eligible for medicaid). That at least would give you guys some sort of income while things got settled.

I don't think he would qualify for disability but maybe temporarily. We need to talk to the lawyer but he was out of the office yesterday so we should know more on Monday. I'm hoping something like that works out.

Re: Bed rest :(

We went through something similar when I was pregnant with DS5. He got into a motorcycle accident and broke his leg in two spots. He couldn't walk and I was due within a month or so and on partial bedrest. We had no income and 4 other kids to care for. Definitely stressful! I will be praying for your family
