It seems at the moment that so much of my life right now is in limbo. Waiting is excruciating. Last night, the nursing home called Bonnie and said that Walt's condition is deteriorating quickly and to come in. I've not yet heard what is what. Hopefully, this has been as peaceful as possible. I wish I were geographically closer, but I know that I probably would add to confusion and crisis if I were actually there. Besides, emotional, mental, spiritual support can be more comforting than physical presence.
In other me-news, the Dept of Education, my doctors, my counselors, and me are locked into a strange dance. All my folks, the doctors, the counselors, the other care-givers are all rallying and willing to see this through. Now, if only the dept of education would give us some straight answers and some consistency, stop negating their own stories and policy, we could move forward. I've already been told by the Dept of Education that my loans will be discharged, however, I've not received documentation regarding that. Instead they have told me that they need more info, but refuse to tell me what that info is. My doctors' offices are doing all they can, refaxing forms to the Dept of Edu again and again, but to no avail. I am past confusion and desperation. This whole thing has had a toll and altho I know that this is par for the course for a gov'ment bureaucracy and all, it doesn't make things any easier to wade thru. Urk.
Will update on Walt as I can.
