13 -- Sorry as hell about you and your wife's problems.  I can agonize with you, because my wife and I both have diverticulosis (or diverticuli, or whatever the hell they are) and have suffered often with the resulting pains.

I've also had a bleeding ulcer (back when I was working too much) and I'm familiar and sympathize with your wife's problem as well.  With the help of antibiotics and ulcer medication, my sore ulcer disappeared and my stomach has returned to some semblance of normalcy. 
Have you tried getting hold of your congressperson?  Sometimes their offices can work wonders for you.

In the meantime, I'm happy to hear your wife has shown signs of improvement and I hope she continues to improve.  Prayers for both of you.
In the meantime, give 'em hell!

Could it be possible she will only need 20 days since she is improving?  As a side note, I thought Medicare covered 30 days after a hospitalization.

Is it possible she could return home and function since she is improving?  Is the parasite issue resolved?

If she was that ill, how can they tell you NOT to seek care for her?  Like an emergency room visit at the point she was deteriorating and couldn't even care for herself?  What is this "hold out" thing?

My daughter is covered under Medicaid since the Obamacare mandate.  I have gone through a lot getting care for her.  Many doctors don't accept it, so finding her care has been really hard.  Of course, this all happens while she has a problem.  One of the local large medical groups have started taking it, so it has helped some.

This is what "managed care" looks like.  So many layers of approval and disapproval.  Government running healthcare is a nightmare scenario to me.

I mentioned skin breakdown as this is taken pretty seriously these days.  My dad is getting home health care (visiting nurse through Medicare) in an assisted living center.  It won't help you if you can't physically care for her, but it may help if she needs follow up care at home.

Tell Linda she has prayers coming her way.  And for yourself too as her caregiver.  Take care of yourself so you can be available for her.

That lousy facebook won't let me read the article.
It wants me to join facebook another communist company.

I want to give an update on my wife's condition. Some of this will be a rehash of what I previously posted, but with some more complete information. I ask anyone that reads this to share it. I do not want to see what happened to her, happen to someone else.
Last month, Linda could walk with the aide of a walker. She could clean, and care for herself with no problem. She has Medicare and Medicaid. Starting January 1, the state of Virginia changed the vendor for their Medicaid. Linda was assigned to Virginia Premier Elite. She was supposed to get her insurance card no later then January 1, 2018. She never got them. About that time, she started getting stomach problems. We had attempted to get changed over from her current primary care, to Jencare, but they would not accept her without the insurance card. We needed to make the switch, because Jencare had transportation that could get her back and forth to her appointments. But with no insurance cards, she was not getting any help, and was getting weaker. A few days into January, my wife was able to stand, but could not walk. She contacted her case manager with Virginia Premier. Her case manager, I believe her name was Suzy, scheduled her for a CTI Interview for February 5, and told Linda to hold out as long as she could.
On January 11, we still had not recieved her cards from Virginia Premier. So, I contacted the company on the contact form that is shown on the website. I made copies of what I submitted, and the confirmation page. But I never heard back. On the 13th, Linda again called her case manager who stated that she would "reorder" the card, and that it would take 7 to 10 days to get them. Again she was told to hold out as long as she could. About two weeks ago, Linda became too weak to stand. She had been wearing adult dippers at the time, but could not stand to change them. From that time until Monday the 29th, she was laying in her own body waste. I had cut the soiled dipper off of her, but I could not lift her to clean her. On Sunday January 28, I sent another message through their contact form. This time I personally followed-up with the company by phone on the 29th. When I told them about the previous attempts to contact then through their websites, they claimed that they never got them, and that they would follow-up. Today, they still claim that they did not get these contacts. So, I told them that their system had to be flawed. They claimed that it wasn't. If someone attempts to contact the company through their website, and they did not receive it, then the system is flawed. To claim otherwise simply proves that they did receive these contacts, and ignored them. Either way, their lack of action caused my wife's condition.
My wife has blisters on her rear end, legs, waist, and private parts. She had blood clots in at least one of her legs, and has bleeding in her stomach. Tomorrow they are doing an upper endoscopy. After she is released from Southside Regional Hospital, they will be sending her to a nursing facility for further therapy. Medicare will pay for the first 20 days, after that who is paying the co-payments? To date, Virginia Premier will not admit that they got and ignored my attempts to contact them, and they refuse to explain why Linda was kept being told to "hold on as long as you can." Since when is a 72 year old woman supposed to not see a doctor, or go to a hospital if they have stomach bleeding. Is this what Virginia is calling quality healthcare? I have talked to Rachel K., Belinda M. and Suzy at Virginia Premier, yet none have bothered to give me a single answer. It is time for answers.

My Congressman, McEachin, is a joke.  I have been fighting with about nerve damage in the left side of my face.  It took VA seven years to make a diagnosis.  I contacted Rep McEachin for help.  The Congressman sent the VA a Congressional Inquiry form.  The hospital's managing director, Mr. Brandecker responded with a complete work of fiction.  I told the Congressman that the response was nothing but a lie.  His staff kept claiming that they would set up a meeting between the Mr. Brandecker and myself, but it never happened.  I kept pushing, and the Congressman's staff stopped returning my calls, or answering my emails.  So, I can't count on the Congressman to do anything.

Thinks for the prayers.  I will keep you and your wife in my prayers also.  It is strange.  Since posting the message on Facebook, I have received supporting messages from people that are friends of friends.  I told my wife, that she is rapidly becoming very popular.

We can only hope that 20 days will be enough, and that she will be able to return home.  But we can't count on it.  Unfortunately, our home will not accommodate a wheelchair.  The doorways are too narrow.  Yesterday, one of her doctors stopped me in the hallway.  He wanted to tell me that Linda may never regain enough strength to walk.  Of course, I have not told Linda.  I do not want to put false obstacles in her way.

The antibiotics seem to have done the trick.  She no longer has constant diarrhea, and has been able to eat better.  Now, they are working on building her iron and potassium levels back up.

The 20 day number came from a social worker at the hospital.  Technically, Virginia Premier is supposed to pickup all Medicare co-payments.  But I am afraid they are trying to weasel out of meeting their responsibility.

I have been keeping you, and your daughter, in my prayers since our previous conversations about your daughter's condition.  I thank you for your prayers!

Once they correct those imbalances (potassium and iron), she may feel stronger.  And of course being able to eat properly.  Potassium is a quick fix, iron a little longer unless you give blood transfusions.

How about some physical therapy to help her re-gain her strength?

They do make collapsible, smaller, wheelchairs that could get through a door.  My mother had one for the car.  Then, inside the house, one could use a regular one.  Just a thought.

Please keep us updated on Linda.

Up until today, they were giving her IV's with additional Potassium, and they are still giving her potassium tablets twice a day.  For Iron, they are giving her shots three times a day.

Today, she had her second physical theropy secession.  She had to have help sitting up, and they had he do some moving of her legs.  She is getting stronger, but she still has a long way to go.

That's awful buddy.
It sounds like that insurance company is ignoring you and hoping you will go away. (as a client of theirs)

Something did get screwy in 2018 with my supplemental insurance plan. They tell me to log into their web page and when I do, they claim they don't know me? They used to take the $116.00 out of my checking account. I called them and gave them my CC number and after some concern, they charged the CC finally. They still don't know me on their web site?
I went to pick up my Xarelto that usually costs $522.99 and they charged me $47.00. I must have insurance. Is this something to do with OBammy care?
Someone is screwed up?

God Bless you and your wife Marine13.  Hopefully she will continue to improve.  When she comes home you might rent or borrow a child's wheelchair that will fit through the doors, get meals on wheels for food, both of you.
It's a Hell of a note that illegal aliens get better healthcare than America citizens.  Hey, that's an idea 13, tell'm she is an illegal  alien from S. America !  Let us know how it's going, there must be some way to help you.
