Went to drama today and practiced for about two hours. We only have 2 1/2 weeks until we perform, lots of work yet to do. After returning from drama Grace read from In the Days of Noah and Greek Myths. Her creative writing assignment was to write about a collection she had, she chose to write about her rock collection. I was surprised to see her get so in to it and write more than she usually does. We also did a lesson from Life of Fred, cursive, word of the day book, context clue cards and 30 minutes of independent reading. Usually Tuesday is a light day due to fine arts classes.
We got the word back on how much the drug company would reduce the cancer drug cost for my mom - get ready for this astounding good fortune that came our way - $2000.00 dollars a month. Can you believe that! How do they expect your average Joe to pay that kind of money for a monthly drug. Went over to my mom's house tonight to write a letter of appeal to the drug company and explain what all we have been through over the past 4 years and how much out of pocket expenses they pay for health insurance, prescription drugs, gas money back and forth to Emory, doctor's visits, labs, etc. Mom will fax it tomorrow to them and see how it goes. Not to mention we looked this drug up on the Internet and so many side effects, very scary. Not really that much different than what she was on before, but still scary. Tomorrow after lunch going back over to moms to help her get groceries and hubby and Grace will sit with daddy. We are still to afraid to leave him alone for any stretch of time. But he hasn't had any more TIA episodes, so we are very thankful for that.
