Tomorrow and Saturday are the BIG DAYS.......

We are having our fundraiser yard sale tomorrow to help pay for Rhett's CPAP machine as well as well as alot of the various other medical supplies that he needs on a daily basis that our insurance has deemed as "Not a Medical Nessacity." Like the tender grips to put on his face to keep his oxgen on at night, as well as the pulse oxemiter probe that he has to have to measure his oxygen saturations at night.

Oh and we can't forget the pediasure that is over 10.00 a six pack; that because he dose not have a feeding tube the insurance will not cover as well. Who cares that he has oral sensory issues and cannot eat enough solids to sustain his weight, right? Dont' get me wrong he is doing much better, and there have been times that I thought we were completley off of it, but then he gets sick or something happens and we are forced to go back to square one.

Usually we can afford to take care of these things, although we have sold all of our assets except our home and our nessicary vehicles. Things are starting to look up, and I am hoping that with the news of Rhett's improved health it will start to get better soon.

Wish us luck!

I hope it went well! I've only done one yard sale and feel like they can really be hit or miss, especially if the weather turns bad. I hope you had a chance to advertise in the local paper beforehand. I've had people tell me that really helps to get people to show up.
