Brothers Campfire Updates on Beloved

Hello, Benjamin from Brother’s Campfire here!

They say all work and no play makes for a dull boy, but I would disagree to some extent. Work has been a rollercoaster of life experiences lately. Prisons are like that, and sociopaths and psychopaths tend to be mean to each other in close confines.

I have had additional exposure to work as I am trying to pick up a LOT of overtime to afford medical Co-pays. Those add up after a while. The therapy is worth it; my Beloved steadily makes progress.

Recently, the insurance denied Botox to loosen up her left arm, but we decided to go with it anyway. Fortunately for us, the insurance company changed their mind and approved it.

She can feel the muscles and tendons trying to work near her wrist, so that is positive!

The hospital stay granted me an additional twenty pounds from sitting around eating zoom zooms and wham whams. I have had to cut back a bit at the dinner table.

Well, that is all I have. I wish you all the best this week!

    Zoom zooms and wham whams? 🤣😂🤣😂 I’m dying! Thank you for the laugh, Ben! On a more serious note, I’m so glad the insurance company made the about face and approved Isabel’s treatment. I pray she gets the strength back in her arm. And from the remarkable progress she’s made in the last three months, I have no doubt that she will! 😊💖

    This is wonderful news that the insurance company decided to pay for the Botox treatments. Isabel is making so much progress. I hope she continues to gain strength in her arm and wrist.

    Our God sees your every sacrifice. (And I would bless you, too, if I could.🌷) Kudos as well to your wife.. she’s amazing!

    Good to hear your beloved continues to improve. As for insurance companies, I’ve heard that many will deny a claim even though they know it’s legitimate because up to 75% of people won’t try again.

    Good report on your wife ― I’m glad the insurance company reversed themselves on the botox. I would say it’s amazing the things they try to get away with not covering, but in another lifetime I worked for an insurance company and so very little that they do surprises me …
