It took us a while > 90 days vs the 35 days eta, but finally! 

Confirmed today. I am very relieved. This will take care of my DH's med co-pays and some other much needed help as his condition progresses (declines). Caring4two I thank you for this important, accurate information which we've learned that even some decision-makers or gatekeepers at the VA unfortunately are not aware of. But eventually they got it done.

Oh I am so glad BW, hope it brings more concrete help.  Your other post made me chuckle but I am SURE it wasn't funny at the time.  Cutting the cord just adds injury to insult, doesn't it?  I've been so proud of my ability to keep mowing our fields every two weeks, 'til the water pump on the tractor blew on Saturday.  Supply chain issues mean 3 weeks to get a replacement, the grass will be over the roof by then.

So glad you were persistent on this--and yes, God bless all our first responders.....

BW sooooo happy you finally got good news! It has been a long while. This will make a big difference for you and your DH. You so deserve this!

I too had a little laugh about the cord, because I have done that! Those dang cords just get in the way!

I’m very happy for you both!!!! I hope you get plenty of help and good council from the VA.

M1, sorry to hear about the water pump. Geese! It really is always something! My push mower is near death as I type!
